One employer’s hiring of foreign born workers

At Cummins Inc., headquartered in Columbus, Indiana, 6% of its total U.S. workforce are H-1B (temporary) visa holders, mostly engineers. It also employs 20-40 DACA beneficiaries. Half of near-by Purdue University’s graduate degrees are awarded to foreign students.

From Marya Rose, chief administrative officer of Cummins, says “We need more flexibility in our visa and green card programs so that we can hire and retain the most talented employees where ever we find them.”
