Are you looking for a job?
Good luck with that.
Lou Dobbs explains how American College Students are being cheated by H-1B.
The H-1B visa program was originally set up to allow foreigners to fill American jobs for which no qualified Americans could be found. But American tech companies like Microsoft and Oracle have used the program as a way to import cheaper labor while laying off thousands of American workers. They are IMPORTING OUTSOURCING. But it's worse than that! Companies are GAMING THE SYSTEM to avoid hiring Americans!!!
Companies are intentially giving American jobs to foreigners.
They could NOT do this without the H-1B program.
Congress is in charge of the H-1B program.
The H-1B program provides for up to 65,000 foreigners to come to the USA and take American jobs.
IN truth, the H-1B program is used to import more than a quarter MILLION foreigners a year to take American jobs. The number is effectively UNLIMITED and FAR from 'temporary'. The initial visa is good for 3 years - and can be easily renewed for another 3 years. Then the foreign worker can apply for citizenship, which typically takes 2 years to process. Even if they are rejected for citizenship, they are here for EIGHT YEARS. And if they get citizenship, they're here FOREVER.
Do the math. 8 years, 250,000 foreigners a year added. Even if none of them become citizens, that's TWO MILLION HIGH-PAYING, HIGH-TECH AMERICAN JOBS that CONGRESS is giving away to foreigners.
Compounding the evils of the H-1B program are the massive fraud associated with the program. A recent assessment by the US Citizenship and Immigration Service concluded that "21% of H1-B visas granted come from FRAUDULENT applications or applications with technical errors"
Proponents of H-1B have claimed there was a shortage of technical workers and that it would harm the economy if we didn't import more foreign workers. But if that was ever true, it certainly isn't true today.
This program might have made sense at one time - but it doesn't anymore. Yes, America can benefit by bringing the best and brightest from around the world to this country for leading-edge research. But the H-1B program has no mechanism to test how essential a foreign worker is. The visas are issued by lottery, and a graduate with a bachelor's degree who wants to write computer code in a good-paying American job has the same chance of getting a visa as a worker with two PhDs and a Nobel Prize who's doing leading-edge gene-therapy research.
Once again, CONGRESS IS CHEATING AMERICANS OUT OF THEIR JOBS! And companies are willing participants.
Economic recovery? With TWO MILLION JOBS being given away by Congress? How can we recover with that sort of betrayal?
Companies are intentially screwing the American worker.
