Our jealous ruling elite hates productive, well-paid workers. Due to various lobby groups + Wall St, cheap labor is the order of the day.
Not to mention that all of the below ignores Title 8 Immigration laws nearly completely.
“For much of the summer, the House of Representatives obsessed over the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act (HR 1044), a bad bill that would eliminate the traditional 7 percent country caps imposed on employment-based visas, largely H-1Bs. By so doing, the bill would ensure that the overwhelming majority of those coveted employment-based visas would go to Indian nationals, nearly 100 percent according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
With only 40 minutes of debate, in July, the House passed HR 1044, 365-65, meaning tech workers from other countries would be shut out. As for American workers, the House passage of 1044 means those elected to represent the interests of Americans are fine letting American families, figuratively speaking, swing in the wind.”.
