I disagree. DaFuq is just expressing a valid concern about the H1-B program that has been highly abused. Whether Trump’s reasoning in regards to supply and demand talking point is legitimate is another matter, but the point is there are some really high paying, very specialized H1B jobs to which those are the jobs the program was designed for and typically those are highly paid jobs. The program has been abused by tech companies to depress wages by filling jobs with visa holders instead of Americans.
It also depends on agreements with their home country with regard to taxes etc., but in many areas multiple H1B visa holders all live together in one house where a lot of them just squelch on their debt when they leave the US, when they don’t plan on returning.
Corporations still pay them less than an American would make for the same job. Notice that the Left never mentions the H1B “pay gap”. In addition the Visa Holder must remain in the same job under whatever conditions for at least 2 years. This undrecuts the educational effort and expense that American’s had to endure for the same job. The H1B program has been abused by big tech for decades.
The issue of the whole family living together under one roof is the big secret to the H1B Visa scam…the worker comes from a foreign country and agrees to take a job that pays 100K when an American with the same degree/experience would expect 150K or more. So, the company saves at least 50K per worker x 1000 workers as an example so they are happy AND the foreign worker will not make any demands, such as a 401K, paid vacation, reasonable working conditions, etc because they don’t want to be sent back home.
But the catch is that the worker then petitions to have their spouse and kids come over as well…and THEN both sets of parents!! Once that happens, each one of them is eligible for SSI and Medicare, even though they never worked a day in their life in the US. Each one of them getting SSI in the neighborhood of $1000-1500 which is a very nice little nest egg in order to be able to afford a large house in a nice neighborhood not to mention there is built in daycare for the kids so if the company pulls strings and gets a work permit for the mom she can get a job as well. So it is not just cut and dry about employing Foreigners to fill a high level position, it is more about the other things associated with hiring a foreigner that is not only taking away opportunities that should be offered to Americans first but the rampant abuses of H1-B program that is also costing the American tax payer of the other services offered by Government that they never paid into. IMO, H1-B needs to be reformed to insure that it addresses the abuses by both the big corporations at the expense of the tax payer, and the foreigners chain migration issue that takes advantage of the social services programs intended for US citiizens.
