Truck deaths rise, efforts to mandate truck safety tech stall

In 2017, a total of 4,102 people in California and across the U.S. died in large truck crashes. The majority, 68%, were occupants of passenger vehicles while truck occupants made up 17% of the fatalities. This number represents a 28% increase from the number of truck crash fatalities in 2009. It's an alarming trend, and numerous safety groups have been pushing for new safety tech on commercial trucks as a way to combat it.

Understanding E1 and E2 visa requirements

If you are currently applying for a visa so that you can live and work in the United States, you will know that often the legal jargon and complex requirements can be overwhelming. If you are already in the U.S., you may worry that there is a risk of deportation if you do not get the appropriate visas. You may also be concerned about how your family, especially your young children, could be affected by this.

H-1B visas are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain

Employers in California and around the country are finding it increasingly difficult to hire highly skilled foreign workers through the H-1B visa program. The program was put into place to ensure that American companies are able to fill positions that require specialized skills or knowledge when suitably qualified candidates cannot be found locally. In 2015, only 6% of H-1B visa applications were denied. That figure has since grown to 24% according to the National Foundation for American Policy.
