15. Lots of false statements there.

Once again, the H1-B visa does not provide a path to citizenship. Some employers sonsor some of their H1-B employees to apply for a green card, but that is not the same as saying that “the H1-B visa provides a path to citizenship.”

Someone on an H1-B visa cannot change employers without first going through the process of applying for an H1-B transfer through their new employer. Given how reluctant most employers are to hire someone who doesn’t already have a green card, that makes it difficult for a person on an H1-B to change employers.

To work for more than one employer at the same time, a person on an H1-B has to convince their second employer to file for a “concurrent H-1B” and pay the filing fee. Otherwise, they will be violating the terms of their H-1B.

And finally, it is extremely difficult for Canadians to be able to work in the U.S. legally. They need an H1-B or a TN-1, which is only granted for very specialized or technical occupations. The fact that there are Canadians who work for your employer doesn’t mean any Canadian can easily get a work permit to work in the U.S. Quite the contrary.

Repeating falsehoods will not make them true. I suggest you do some research before spreading misinformation online.
