Backlash stirs in US against
foreign worker visas

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/6/2014 8:10:33 PM

Amid calls for expanding the nation´s temporary skilled worker program, some Americans are pushing back. They argue the so-called H-1B program has been hijacked by staffing companies that import cheaper, lower-level workers to replace more expensive U.S. employees. Lawsuits have cropped up around the country. And some tech worker groups are calling for a boycott of firms that they say are ignoring qualified U.S. workers. [Snip] Experts say at least 600,000 are here at any one time. An immigration bill passed in the U.S. Senate last year would have increased the number of annually available H-1B visas to 180,000 and

Comments:
With so many powerful people like Bill Gates pushing strongly for more and more H-1B visas, it´s going to take some very bard work to get any limitation on these job- and career-snatching visas.

"Temporary"? I don´t think so. Every H-1B visa worker A and I have ever known eventually applied for citizenship. The initial six-year "temporary" contract can be extended with ease until the holder applies for citizenship, then he/she can take whatever jobs they want. This is why US technical and scientific workers find it extremely difficult to get a raise or go to another job.

As long as there is a virtually unlimited number of H-1B visas available our largest technology companies will continue to throw out their 30+ year veterans instead of retraining them and will complaint hat the H-1Bs are needed because there are no skilled employees in the US. As Americans we have to compete with foreign labor and that´s fair. But it´s ridiculous to encourage our own largest employers to throw Americans out of work here and the current visa structure does that.

Personally, I would rather see the jobs go offshore, that the workers come from offshore for the job here. That goes for low-skilled AND high skilled labor. This land is our home. Its our culture. Its not a giant office park.

and, by the way, a pretty good number of these H1-B´s have names like Muhammad, or Hussein, or the like. And more than a few bring along wife. Who promptly has a baby. Instant citizen, and now grounds for permanent residency and eventual citizenship. Also bring over mother-in-law or the like to help with baby. Or babies. Later to be an upstanding member of the mosque.
Multiply by many.
Probably happening in YOUR town. Recall this the next time you hear calls to increase the number of STEM students (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics). Ran into a pretty good electrical engineer, working the electronics section at WalMart, part time. All he could get, after 20-some years in the field. And he ain´t alone.

Just for the record, I worked at a large money center bank (HSBC.com) from 2001-2006. Most of the employees were H-B1, and they were almost 100% going back to where they came from (India, China, Pakistan, etc). They were very qualified and they paid all the SS withholding.

Some of them reported to me (I very much born in America).

So, to some extent, the slams here against H-IBs are bogus. They are the best temps available. If American kids want the jobs, get qualified. Otherwise, the large companies will hire the imports.

In the year 1900 NYC buildings used to have signs on them

"If you don´t come into work on Sunday, don´t come into work on Monday".

That´s the work drumbeat. But it stopped in the U.S. about 75 years ago. Tough shite.

I know I´m double posting but #6 I am not complaining about the skills of the H-1Bers. I work with an enormous number of South Asians and I admire their skills and their work ethic and we are all colleagues and where I work we also have westerners in Asia. My complaint is that there are a lot of experienced people who have been in large technology employers in the US for 25-35 years who are being laid off instead of retrained because our immigration policies have made it easier to make those older, more experienced but more expensive employees more disposable by artificially increasing the pool of lower-paid non-citizens. I don´t begrudge the people here on visas who are only behaving rationally. I DO have problems with the employers manipulating the programs - the same way, at a lower level, I have even bigger problems with the US Chamber of Commerce wanting immigration "reform" that just means more people competing for every available job and driving costs down - once again, artificially by inflating the supply of workers.

In the long run, once again, we have to be efficient and compete successfully or those jobs will leave the US anyway. But while the jobs are in the US we shouldn´t give employers incentives to throw older employees with few options out with the garbage.

I am telling you upfront, foreign engineers, because of the culture in which they are raised, cannot hold a candle to US-raised engineers.

Unfortunately, most companies have to fail before the CEOs figure that out. Things will eventually resolve themselves if we do not bail out these failing organizations and hold onto our economic capitalism.

H-1B visas are a very good way of importing talent. This brain drain is very good for US and our economy. Try finding an American mathematician.

It is the uneducated illegal alien Mexican, Guatemalans, Hondurans, Salvadoran and Costa Ricans that lower wages for the poor African and Hispanic-Americans.

Sorry, #10, strongly disagree with your statements.

Mr. A attended Texas A&M, President´s Scholar. Did Navy ROTC, commissioned, flew for Navy. Used BSc Comp Sci to find civilian job as programmer/analyst. Has a photographic memory--in ensuing 30 years, has crammed into his brain almost every system and code imaginable, now classed as senior software developer/engineer. Has a load of certifications, including MCSD and MCSE and the usual others, plus recent Linux I and II. Secret clearances. Ability to convey highly technical information in easily understood manner, has always been the go-to person to answer tech questions. Handsome fellah, if I do say so myself, neat dresser. Personable. Punctual, honest, courteous, loyal.

He and the MAJORITY of the older techies he knows have been forced out/laid off more than once to make space for foreign visa-holding and college-fresh employees. Decisions are usually made by upper management in the belief that older employees are "too expensive."

Anecdotal, granted, but must be stats somewhere on the median age of high-tech workers. Can´t prove age discrimination, upper managers are wily devils with MBAs and little or no technical knowledge beyond how to send e-mails.

This time, though, inevitable lay-off is courtesy of government agency not renewing long-term contract. Work done was as contracted, most of employees were well-qualified ex-military, no reason given for lay-off. Luckily, another subcontractor is in need of employees for a new contract and has hired Mr A PDQ.

A note about mathematics: Mr A does calculus problems in his head. For fun. And I married him in large part because he takes up less space than an Encyclopedia Britannica set--and has about as much knowledge, especially history and politics.

Cherie Blair has quit Matrix Chambers, the human rights legal practice she co-founded while her husband Tony was Labour prime minister. She is leaving to focus on an international legal consultancy, Omnia Strategy, which she set up in 2011.

Aircrews flying combat missions over northern Iraq feel their task is “personal” because a British aid worker who was beheaded by Islamic State militants had once served in the RAF, sources said. David Haines spent 12 years as an RAF engineer before he later became an aid worker helping people in war zones to rebuild their lives.

Iran´s Deputy Chief of Staff has said that soldiers from the Islamic Republic were operating "in the field" together with Palestinian terrorist groups. Speaking to a group of senior military officers in Tehran on Saturday, Major General Gholam Ali Rashid appraised the extensive support Iran was providing for its proxies throughout the region.

The support of Parliament for British participation in air strikes in northern Iraq is welcome but leaves crucial questions unanswered. The most serious flaw in the international response to the Islamic State threat is the failure to see Iraq and Syria requiring a common military and political strategy. The Islamic State terrorists have, effectively, abolished the international border between these two countries. To some extent this has been recognised by the United States, which has launched air strikes against terrorist targets in both countries. These air strikes, over a period of weeks, are likely to have a serious degrading effect on the terrorist

There is a sense of relief across the political spectrum that Britain is finally doing something in Iraq. It was impossible to tolerate the advance of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) any longer, and now the UK finds itself part of an international effort with parameters of action that, the public is assured, will not lead to long-term troop presence or nation-building. Thanks in part to a rigorous parliamentary debate, the British people understand why they are in Iraq somewhat better than they did in 2003. [Snip] But what will happen next?

There are two fairly obvious ways that David Cameron might present himself this week in his last party conference speech before the general election. [Snip] By calling for a united stand against the real enemy of the values we all share as a nation, Mr Cameron could make a few of his domestic political enemies look like trivial distractions at a time of danger.

He truly believes that Britain should be actively engaged in the fight against terrorism, and can speak to that effect with impressive force.

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name.

Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory. The 2014 election is rapidly looking like something new
