From twitter: these dishonest companies are using H1b visas as ‘a highly lucrative business model of bringing in cheaper H-1B workers to substitute for Americans’.
Today Sen. Sessions and his colleagues called for a federal investigation into abuses in the #H1B program: http://1.usa.gov/1arP33v
“Southern California Edison ought to be the tipping point that finally compels Washington to take needed actions to protect American workers. As Professor Ron Hira testified, the H-1B visa has become ‘a highly lucrative business model of bringing in cheaper H-1B workers to substitute for Americans… Most of the H-1B program is now being used to import cheaper foreign guestworkers, replacing American workers, and undercutting their wages.’ The U.S. is graduating twice as many STEM students each year as find jobs in those fields, yet the H-1B program continues to provide IT companies with a large annual supply of lower-wage guest workers to hire in place of more qualified Americans. There is no ‘shortage’ of talented Americans, only a shortage of officials willing to protect them.”
