Department of Labor Waltz

The US allows 50,000+ individuals to work here under the H-1B program every year. Generally, these temporary permits are issued to professional and technical types. The US employer must avow that there are no qualified US citizens available for the jobs, and the employer must send DofL a brief job description.

Then DoL keeps it secret.

No--you can't call up DoL to find out what sort of "jobs Americans can't or won't do" were converted to H-1B requests. You can't find the positions posted on the DoL website. And DoL is absolutely sure that this is the way it should be--Congress told them so.
