The replacements

“The H-1B visa system has been broken for decades. Now workers want Trump to fix it”

“Donald Trump promised he would “forever end the use of the H-1B as a cheap labor program and institute an absolute requirement to hire American workers

Instead of allowing a small group of highly skilled workers in to fill positions where no Americans are available, H-1B has become a treadmill for replacing US workers, as well as facilitating the outsourcing of hundreds of thousands of jobs abroad. The end result is unemployed Americans and foreign workers with lower wages, fewer protections, and no clear path to citizenship. “As long as you allow the H-1B cancer to keep growing, you’re hurting everybody except the companies that are getting cheaper labor,” says Morrison.”
