Most Bachelor of Science jobs are held by foreigners in Silicon Valley and owners want it to stay that way

Some 57 out of every 100 jobs in Silicon Valley requiring a bachelor’s degree or higher are filled by someone who wasn’t born in the U.S., according to a boast by Carl Guardino, president of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group.

Guardino, who wants President Donald Trump to grant DACA (ages 16-34) amnesty, said that loss of illegal workers would be “particularly damaging in Silicon Valley”, where they are part of the region’s tech world labor pool. Of the nation’s 800,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), about 230,000 are in California.

This business leader seems oblivious to reality. Every job held by a non-citizen means one less job for an American, and leads to lower wages in that skill or profession.

Foreign workers don’t strike, complain about excessive hours, report pervert bosses or otherwise make waves – fearing reporting by employers to authorities. Their bargaining power in the marketplace rivals the 1800s’ cotton field slaves, but lacking even minimal guaranteed healthcare, food or shelter. Meanwhile, on a brighter note for Silicon Valley, Jeff Bezos, marked a milestone this week, when his personal wealth exceeded $100 billion. Continue reading →

Trump team allows INCREASE in Visas to take away our jobs and keep America from being “great” again

Senator Tom Cotton (R-ARK) recently challenged the perpetual talking point used to rationalize taking away American jobs to give them to H-2B Visa holders.

A lot of the arguments for this kind of program boil down to this: No American worker will do that job. That is a lie. It is a lie. There is no job that Americans will not do.

If the wage is decent and the employer obeys the law, Americans will do the job. And if it’s not, they should pay higher wages. To say anything else is an insult to the work ethic of the American people, who make this country run.

Sounds like “Make America Great Again” – President Donald Trump’s rally call – but the White House apparently wasn’t listening to Cotton Continue reading →

Microsoft has massive layoffs; H-1B hires continue, and foreign workers now far outnumber Americans

Bill Gates – looking for ways to get even richer!

Thursday was another bad day for American jobs as Microsoft – the once All American innovator – began to end the livelihoods of 3,000 families, a process called “downsizing” by the elites.

A spokesperson for founder Bill Gates called this job slaughter simply “changes” to “better serve our customers and partners.”

Today, we are taking steps to notify some employees that their jobs are under consideration or that their positions will be eliminated,” the Microsoft spokesperson told CNBC. “Like all companies, we evaluate our business on a regular basis. This can result in increased investment in some places and, from time-to-time, re-deployment in others.

Meanwhile, foreign workers are being hired by the Seattle gang through the H-1B visa and Optional Practical Training (OPT) program. Microsoft is  one of the top recruiters of the some 330,000 foreign nationals (in 2016), who get to remain in the U.S. after graduating from Continue reading →

India lobbies, Congress listens, we lose our jobs

An adjunct professor at the University of New South Wales has revealed the depth and danger of lobbying by India to end jobs for Americans and replace them with H-1B holders.In an interview Ashok Sharma said lobbying has not diminished under Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Donald Trump, who campaigned against H1B visas. In fact, the opposite seems true, as Sharma explained:

Since Modi’s arrival and reactivation of Indian lobbying in the post-nuclear deal phase, H-1B visas is the first major issue to show its strength and effectiveness. Indian lobbying has suddenly become active, especially to tackle the US move to curb H-1B visas.

It has also evolved in strength and strategy since its inception phase in the 1990s. It’s now well-organized, coordinated and more focused in its approach. But they will need to focus on individuals and officials who are influential in the Trump administration.

Sharma said that a multi-pronged approach will allow Indians to take Continue reading →

Foreigners take our best jobs under H-1B scheme; video exposes “fake news” approach at CNN!

American universities produce the best software engineers, IT managers and programmers  in the world, but many can’t find a job or have taken pay cuts in recent years.

India’s Navin Kabra, 20+ years of being a software engineer at various levels, explains why in a comment on Quora:

Because there are too many software engineers in India, and not enough in the US.

Because India is churning out 1 million new engineers every year, whereas the industry requires only about 200,000 of them.

Because the “average” fresh software engineering graduate in India can barely program, and 40% of them fail the Fizz Buzz test (as per actual data we’ve collected over the last 2 years), whereas the average software engineering graduate in the US is likely to be much better (as per my anecdotal data).

Kahra was answering this question:

Why is the median salary of a software engineer in India around Rs 3.6 Lakh, whereas in US it is $71k(ie Rs 44Lakh), which is nearly 12.4 times that of India, but the cost of living or equivalent salary of US is considered to be only 4 to 5 times that of Indian salary?

Which brings me to the one bright hope in recent years that the abominable H-1B Continue reading →

That buy your green card pitch by Kushner’s sister in China renews controversy over visas for the rich

If you had $300 during the Civil War you could avoid that first Draft by just paying the dough and walking away. No money, you could go to jail or possibly become one of the 620,000 Americans killed on the battlefields.

When it comes to citizenship, the rich don’t need to climb that wall or swim that Rio Grande, now they just put up money, $500,000 or more to be exact, to invest in some project in the U.S. and agree that somehow that will create ten new jobs.

Some 85% of all these “investment citizens” are from China. The deal is called EB-5 Visa, and not only can you become an American, but so can the wife and children – all for the same price.

By this criterion, anyone with enough money can buy citizenship. Poor folks need not apply.

The program was extended last week by President Donald Trump, even though he said he had qualms about it during the campaign last year. The day after he signed the extension, the Kushner organization was in Beijing, selling investments in the luxury apartment building, One Journal Square, that is set to be built next year in Jersey City. A brochure blasted:

“Invest $500,000 and immigrate to the United States.”

She was once World Champion Blueberry packer, and now some are portraying her as just a slut!

For eight summers she did the kind of job Americans don’t want to do, according to the “experts” – picking blueberries on a New Jersey farm. After her parents divorced, she was just three, and was raised by her mother, grandmother and two unmarried aunts. Her first big accomplishment was winning the New Jersey Blueberry Princess pageant at age 16.

Four years later she won the World Champion Blueberry Packing competition. She could pack 300 crates a day. Although she also excelled as a student and cheerleader at St. Joseph’s High, her heart was with the farm:

“Everything I learned about life and business started on that farm.”

Bill Gates investments are not just in Microsoft

Cascade Investment LLC is a private investment and holding company.

The company describes itself as a diversified investment company. Its investments include more than half the Bill Gates fortune:

  • Auto Nation
  • Berkshire Hathaway
  • Canadian National Railway
  • Carpetright
  • Dante Giovanni Corporation
  • Coca Cola Femsa SAB de CV – 20% stake
  • Cox Communications
  • FEMSA (Mexican brewer)
  • Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts – 42.5 percent

  • Otter Tail Power Company
  • Pan American Silver Corporation
  • Republic Services, Inc

No wonder Gates favors unlimited immigration and H-1b visas, changes in law that would benefit his financial interests by lowering wages and increasing American unemployment.

Liberal FOX boycott big failure, now it’s crush Lou Dobbs over aliens and birthers

There has been a movement by some folks to boycott Lou Dobbs, because he has given airtime to supporters and opponents of the theory that President Obama was not born in Hawaii. Such boycotts rarely are effective, because most viewers are not one issue.

However, CNN is generally liberal and too often PC. You would think that Fox News would be a target of overly excited liberals, not CNN. Perhaps, there has been a movement to squash Fox. If so, it has been a failure.
