If H1-B is pricing itself out of the market, so be it.
I doubt we'll see any effect from a 100k minimum wage. Maybe a slight drop in applicants, but the limit will probably still be hit.
but how is the retailer supposed to know the manufacturer/supplier has them "inflated". Are they supposed to go all-Sherlock for each item they sell?
You want to claim that you are cheaper than marked price, then you need to do the research!
You can't just make arbitrary claims like that without anything to back such a claim. That is misleading pricing.
Honestly, there are so many common practices today that is fraudulent, if consumer protection agencies were to get aggressive about enforcing current regulation they have the power to change many things.
Note: just because a fraudulent practice is both common and suspected by must customers doesn't make it any less fraudulent. This is similar to mileage inflation scandal, it was common practice, consumers knew they wouldn't get the advertised milage, but that didn't make it any less illegal
If the US buddies up to Russia after the administration change, it's conceivable that the US gets its hands on Snowden in person.
Yeah, with Trump it's no-longer inconceivable that Ukraine is sold to Russia in exchange for Snowden. Unlikely, but hardly inconceivable.
The US isn't going to burn its bridges with its allies over this. It'll talk some smack, stomp its boots some, but it will be more bluster than anything.
Well, Trump is talking about NATO being of no importance to him. With Russia acting aggressively, you might understand why European nations aren't willing to risk trouble over a single individual.
Now what exactly happens to Germany if they change their mind once they have Snowden and hand him over to be executed by the US, hmm, nothing what so ever.
Germany can't extradite without guarantees that he won't face execution, not only would it violate German law, it would violate the European Charter of Human Rights. All EU member nations have surrendered sovereignty to the EU in human rights matters. Blatant violations could result in sanctions.
Regardless, what on earth makes you think Germany isn't trustworthy. When they say safe-access they probably mean: enact a law that Snowden can't be extradited or prosecuted on charges related to leaking information. Likely it would effectively grant him asylum in Germany, as any time-limit on such an arrangement wouldn't be safe for Snowden (given that he can't know for sure if he would ever be able to return to Russia).
Even a year ago I would have said that Obama would go down in history as one of the best presidents. Was I ever wrong.
Well, the bar for "best"-president is quite low if serve between Bush and Trump
He'll still be remembered as great president, just because the ones before and after him will remember as utter disasters.
Voting for Trump out of protest is like shooting your self in the foot to cure foot fungus.
That sounds like an profoundly American way of curing foot fungus.
