I looked at this, its nonsense, in regard to high tech jobs especially. The immigration levels are not historically tied to economic performance, in fact, the last period of major economic growth that benefited common Americans was the 50s and 60s and there were very low levels of immigration during that period. The low levels of immigration assured that the jobs in the growing economy went to Americans and this lead to a growing middle class because immigrants were not constantly distorting the US labor market. Democrats are liars who actually hate the US and the middle class, they are doing everything they can to destroy the middle class with immigration which drives down wages, and then they complain about low wages they create themselves. Another fact is that in history, during periods of high unemployment the immigration level was restricted, as well, as a RESPONSE to unemployment. This is one reason why immigration levels went down in the 1930s, But immigration levels kept on going down in the 40s, 50s, and 60s, a time when the economy was booming. Restriction of immigration does NOT cause economic downturns, restriction of immigration has been done in response to economic downturns. But the fact is, immigration is harmful, not beneficial
The real way you create demand in the economy is through monetary policy tools, immigration runs contrary to economic recovery and hinders it, you actually want to stop all immigration. This assures the jobs from the increase in money supply will go only to citizens who are are trying to help, not to immigrants.
There is no shortage of IT workers, in fact there are twice as many IT workers in the US as there are jobs for them. Obviously an h1b visa is simply taking jobs away from Americans. Many of us have known young college graduates who cannot find work while at the same time they see companies filled with foreign Indian labor and companies offshoring to India. If I hear "lets expand the h1b program" again I will scream. Its a scam that I think is rooted in hatred of Americans and a sadistic desire by Liberals like Zuckerberg to steal the country from Americans and screw over American workers.
One of the issues with IT jobs and many other jobs is that they really can be finite and do not necessarily respond to demand in the economy, which is contrast to manufacturing jobs where there is a more direct connection. This is because tech jobs often deal with design of product which only needs to be done once regardless the number of units sold.
Immigration does not create job growth either because, since while it drives down wages, the decreased wages are kept by elite and are removed from the general economy, this leads consumers with less money to spend. There would be much more demand in the US economy for goods from American citizen college graduates filling their homes if we were to stop stealing their jobs and giving them to Indians, now these American citizens are living in their parents basement. You want to create demand, stop giving away Americans jobs and get these young Americans out of the basement and into the jobs by getting rid of the Indian theives. Because of evil bastards like Mark Fuckerberg and other supporters of H1B visas, people cannot find work. The H1B visas for a whole host of reasons are job killers and that destroying not only americans lives but also the economy.
In related news, reports have showed the US birth rates are dangerously low, especially among whites, the birth rates are far below replacement, this means that white people are basically going extinct. Its obvious why this is, people such as Zuckerberg and other liberals and the US Chamber of Commerce, Wall Street Journal, et al, are giving away Americans jobs to Indians. The result is it is almost impossible for a college graduate in this country to find a job because the Indians have stolen all of the jobs. Every Indian that takes an American job causes an American to not be able to find one.
What we need to do is we need to incentivize White americans to have more children and this can be done through killing the H1B program, banning abortion, placing a moratorium on contraceptives, deporting all of the Indians and getting American citizens into these jobs, and creating a college grant program that for persons who have 2 children by the age of 25, if they fianance college for those first two their next 3 children will have free college. We also want major tax cuts for middle class families, for every child they have should reduce the tax rate significantly. to take advantage of these benefits fully they must have 2 children by age 24, and 4 by age 27, and 5 by 31, but the tax cuts continue for lifetime. Also replace social security with a filial responsibilty system whereby instead of paying 5% of income to social security, we pay 5-10% of income up to 0-40,000 directly into our own parents social security private retirement accounts. This incentivizes people to have more children in order to increase the size of their retirement accounts, only income up to 40k is used for this purpose, the median income, to encourage that this responds only to the number of children they have, rather than the level of education, because it is quantity that this is designed to incentivize.
I suggest with immigration we seal the borders. The fact is we can put people who are on welfare into the jobs. Only about 10% of Mexicans work in Agriculture. The rest are in "softer' service industry jobs. One community devastated by the illegal immigration is the black community as Mexicans are stealing jobs Blacks rely on. IF we were to deport the mexicans and do welfare to work for Black Americans, watch the unemployment rate for blacks tumble.
Deport all illegals. Seal the border. Kill the h1b program. Replace the mexican workers with welfare to work programs.
