Though I did not vote for Trump, I have to say he is certainly right about all the fake news (on this topic at least)..
The "spin" regarding H1B in news articles spewing out since this was announced this morning is amazing...
Everyone (on this site at least), knows that H1B is all about getting rid of Americans in IT jobs in the USA to replace them with cheaper Indians onshore for roles that companies were not able to offshore to India for whatever reason..
On major sites as of this morning..:
On Google News / CNN:
"Large firms say they need the visas to bring in engineers and other high-skilled workers they can't find in the U.S. "
again, the fake "skills shortage"..while in reality our IT grads are working in $30K annual salary jobs, Best-Buy and Starbucks because they cannot find good IT work. I know plenty of smart folks in situations like this..
"The H-1B non-immigrant visa allows U.S. companies to employ graduate-level workers in several specialized fields, including information technology, medicine, engineering and mathematics."
I have to hand it to him, Trump may be rather nuts overall, but he is actually doing what he said he would do, and he is the first person in office to actually address this issue (or even mention it).., which is more than you can say for either the R's or D's that have been president up to now. (I don't really consider Trump to be an 'R', either, for what its worth..he is following his own agenda mostly unrelated to the R party from what I can see..)
Kudos to him, maybe I was wrong about him after all..
