H-1B CAP COUNT: 41,000
The Fiscal Year 2012 (FY2012) H-1B cap season began on April 1, 2011. Since April 1, a mere 41,000 H-1B cap-subject Petitions have been receipted by USCIS as of October 7, 2011. This is much lower than in recent years and likely reflects the fact that US employers are not hiring workers, including foreign-national workers.
