Tax Dodgers.. American kids last corporate cronyism. Tax business according to the percent of visa workers they have to make up for the raxes they are dodging and the welfare programs their workers are using.
I wish there was a study comparing the business first wealthy types support for below market cheap labor, with the business first wealthy types who supported free labor slavery before the US Civil War.
The Republican party was created in rejection of these wealthy business first types.
Hire AMERICAN CITIZENS for the jobs??
Just a thought.
“Take time to visit local colleges and universities and you’ll realize, 95% of all STEM degrees in the US are going to folks that need legal sponsorship. “
That’s not even remotely true.
You can’t get much more in-your-face than this. They’re telling you that you don’t matter at all and there’s nothing you can do about it.
Two things. They say they are bringing people who will do jobs Americans won’t do. But there aren’t any jobs Americans won’t do. There are jobs middle-class kids won’t do. But there is no honest job that someone won’t willingly do given a bit of respect and a paycheck. Americans need those jobs. Its their leg up into productive life.
Second; they are not only bringing in unskilled and semi-skilled labor. They are bringing in engineers and programmers thousands per year, depressing wages for those who are still employed and pushing others out of work entirely. Companies used to actively train people when they couldn’t find the people they needed; its too easy now to simply bring people in from abroad.
Visas for tech workers are given out 80,000 per year, good for 6 years. So at any time there are 480,000 foreign engineers and programmers here on H1B. At the end of it they usually covert to permanent residency, so it is a constant flow of 80,000 techs per year coming into the country. Add to that a million legal immigrants, and another million illegal immigrants, and can anyone seriously believe that American workers are unaffected by all of this?
I was trained by a company, and built a very good career from that start. That kind of training program simply doesn’t exist anymore, there is no need for it when they can simply recruit from overseas.
The joke is that the people recruited in many or most cases have to be trained once they are in their cubicle.
“I spend a great deal of time recruiting and have for 20 years in local colleges and universities and it is absolutely true. “
You have represented foreigners on FR for far too long too to know you are full of poop as a Christmas goose.
You are also liberal enough to think you are fooling others as though no one else works with colleges, and we don’t see that Anti-American nonsense you claim is out there.
Hey Billionaires, YELLOW VESTS!!!!!!!!!
Anything for personal profit and to hell with the rest of us. Typical lib..
“hidden in the House version of the 2019 funding package for the Department of Homeland Security”
WHO hid it there? With knowledge we can better define our enemies.
Yup, that’s Fat Boy.
He’s not a “technologist”. Just a game programmer with a Business degree. And those beady brown eyes...
His buddy Ellison is the one who put him over the top with his boring CRM database crap.
So we should call his bluff.
Let’s say, OK, Marc: let’s bring in 400,000 Ukrainians, Russians, Czechs, Poles and yes, Germans.
But they have to be Christian. We want them to assimilate. It’s for the good of the country, right Marc?
Let’s see the bigot walk that back.
Wait, I forgot!
Soon we will need to take in 10 million white South Africans.
Marc’s cool with that, right!? They’re industrious, productive, well educated...who could argue?
We know what Mr. Virtue Signalling Marc’s answer will be: a beady eyed Nyet!
