Take a deeper look at Calif. their Christmas dislplays in neighborhoods in the suburbs is no existant, because they people have a different religous background. We import folks with different values, for their education, then they change our politics to suit their history...Indian socialism for example.
I am laughing at all the Bay Area tech execs who rely SO heavily on the H1B and who all supported Obama.
I could care less about their Hindu or Buddhist or Confucian backgrounds. (Islam, of course, is a whole different story.)
And if educated US techies can’t compete and won’t retool, they should be doing something else. The country is far better off with more dynamic technologists and entrepreneurs.
The importing of socialist political values is troubling. I think we could overcome it over time had we no affirmative-action Balkanization of racial and ethnic groups and no massive welfare programs.
I’m not quite sure of the answer to that, and I think it is a basis for real consideration.
All of the foreign nationals that we sponsor for work visas get paid on the same scale as every other engineer; based on education and work experience.
I’ve not personally seen the “they work for lower wages” meme in action.
