How many of you think H-1B folk “steal” American jobs?
Seriously. I am sick of MAGA idiots yammering all over about H-1B immigrants stealing jobs. Now, I do agree some outsourcing shops do visa fraud that needs to be curbed. We come here legally, pay taxes, buy houses made our life here for decades, support our communities and contribute to economy.
But how many of you honestly know how much does an employer has to invest in money and time to get a H-1B application going and the rigorous processing involved with attorney, USCIS ? And do you believe these corporations would invest this money in visa fee, attorney fee, cycles for one H-1B visa and in path to citizenship, if they can find equally able American citizens to do the same job? These tech jobs need to be filled with able folk who are STEM majors or at the least with those who have cognitive abilities and engineering knowledge. Even if the administration makes H-1B harder, these jobs aren’t going to be awarded to American citizens they’ll rather be outsourced to countries where these companies can find able folk(Flash news: it’s already happening). It’s never too late to correct the course why not improve this broken education system first and foster the future generation towards STEM majors?
US still ranks 38th in math and 27th in sciences and lags behind any and all of the industrialized nations. Why not start the focus there than spending millions of dollars of taxpayer money in building football fields for colleges and schools. You’re only bailing out NCAA and other leagues in doing so. How does that really benefit your future generation? A Swahili degree isn’t going to be of much help for the student athlete with broken fibula.
The first step of solving the problem is to admit you’ve a problem. Why not start there and try fixing it than accusing us of stealing your jobs? For crying out loud most of us here demand a wage far better than an average American for the said reasons. Don’t let any con man tell you “USA needs to be made great again, it’s already GREAT! We all came here chasing our dreams and to be successful”. I implore you to help yourself and please do quantify your arguments (with TC) than ignorant chants if you wish.
