H-1B Visas Strangling American Workforce

Of course they are. Americans are being systematically removed from the US workforce by India Inc “global staffing agencies” such as Tata, Wipro, InfoSys, and Cognizant.

The all-out warfare on the American worker continues.

“An H-1B visa is a special visa granted to foreign nationals who wish to work in the United States. A company must show evidence that the position could not be filled by a US citizen. The total number of H-1B visas that may be filled each year is now tentatively capped at 85,000 but there are several ways to get around this. On the surface there doesn’t appear to be much to this and almost anyone would agree to the basic principle. However, there are several things wrong with this program that are becoming more and more apparent.

In practice, the H-1B visa program displaces American workers by giving incentives to companies to shun a local work force in favor of a foreign one without the hassle of relocating overseas. Typically, Americans with well-paying salaried jobs are replaced by foreign workers, mostly from South Asia, in the fields of IT, software engineering, programming/coding, technicians, or even the employees of theme parks like Disney. Over 250 employees of Disney World in Florida, mostly skilled technicians, were given pink slips and replaced by H-1B visa recipients flown in from India. The laid off employees were even instructed to train their replacements, foreign nationals, who would be taking over their positions, their uniforms, and their livelihoods. It is very fitting to juxtapose their storied position as America’s cultural representative with the reality of corporate treason. These are 250 skilled Americans with an American work ethic and families that rely on them to provide”.
