FY2017 H1B Visa ‘lottery’ slots full- now US STEM workers can apply for jobs
Ahh Spring! When birds tweet, April showers bring May flowers and the H1B visa lottery window closes. Now US workers can thaw out from the chill of foreign worker visas and try to find a leftover job not filled by one of the HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of former H1B visas now on green cards, or one of the new H1B visa holders about to ‘win the lottery!” on the back of American families
It’s unfxckinbelievable. Year after year Silicon Valley and the Beltway Boyz conspire to betray the American STEM worker by importing tens of thousands of foreign workers under the H1B Visa program, then convert them all to green cards letting them permanently lower the wages of the entire sector.
It is deliberate, it is a conspiracy to lower US worker wages. It should be RICO’d out of existence. Read all about the fraud here.
Finally a class-action suit (only way to get anything done in the courts today is to ensure a bunch of lawyers make a windfall, then they’ll return your calls) from Disney workers forced to train their replacements is underway.
Obama is bestest friends with Silicon Valley. So are the rest of the candidates running for POTUS. Take it away Lyin Ted~
Two candidates are currently unbeholden to the hard lobbying Tech Sector- Donald J. Trump & Bernie Sanders.
The Donald has adopted Sen. Jeff Sessions foreign worker visa limitations and requirements. While The Don hemmed and hawed a bit in one of the final GOP debates and on a Savage interview about the H1B visas, he told us straight out a few days later that he uses these visas in his company but he thinks the system needs to be changed as per his position paper.
Megyn Kelly asked about highly-skilled immigration. The H-1B program is neither high-skilled nor immigration: these are temporary foreign workers, imported from abroad, for the explicit purpose of substituting for American workers at lower pay. I remain totally committed to eliminating rampant, widespread H-1B abuse and ending outrageous practices such as those that occurred at Disney in Florida when Americans were forced to train their foreign replacements. I will end forever the use of the H-1B as a cheap labor program, and institute an absolute requirement to hire American workers first for every visa and immigration program. No exceptions.”
I do not begrudge anyone using the current system to advance their interests, it is human. Be it tax code or worker visas, you play the game with the rules you are given. I DO hold a YYYUGE GRUDGE against the DC politicians (elected to represent US the AMERICAN WORKERS), ‘representatives’ of the peoole, who take BRIBES to make this shxt possible (you call it fundraising I call it what it is).
…Cognizant Technology Solutions spent about Rs 17 crore ($2.7 million) last year trying to influence US lawmakers primarily on the country’s new immigration rules, significantly higher than its top three Indian IT rivals put together.
WiproBSE 0.17 % spent about $460,000 on lobbying in the US last year, and Tata Consultancy ServicesBSE -0.25 %, India’s largest software exporter, about $80,000, filings with the US Lobbying Act Disclosure Database show…
However, the other candidates are BEING FUNDED by these companies. Cruz has tried to INCREASE the H1B visas by a factor of 500. The Rube tried to flood us with foreign STEM workers under his ingenius ISquared plan after his Gang of 8 betrayal failed.
Cruzin for Foreign Workers (like himself)
Cruz, who announced his presidential bid this morning, once proposed an immediate increase in the base H-1B cap from 65,000 to 325,000. Cruz offered the H-1B increase as an amendment in 2013 to the Senate’s comprehensive immigration bill.
Cruz’s amendment was defeated by the Senate’s Judiciary Committee, which approved an 180,000 H-1B cap increase in the comprehensive immigration bill. The House never acted on this legislation.
Lyin’ Ted, he holds up the Bible, puts it down and lies…
…Cruz is part of large group of politicians who will not acknowledge the H-1B’s visas use in offshore outsourcing or the reality of U.S. workers who are forced to train their visa-holding replacements. In defending this H-1B increase, Cruz cited a study by the American Enterprise Institute, which argued that visa workers create jobs. This organization primarily represents the views of large companies and asset management firms….
Here we are today April 8th. Immigration has closed the Lottery applications for H1B visas for FY ’17, but first…
…applications for H1B visa category exceeded the cap of 85,000 fixed for the fiscal year 2017 on Thursday, when filings ended. The process opened on April 1. Of the total cap of 85,000 visas, 20,000 are under a special category called ‘advanced degree exemption.’
Indian IT companies such as TCS, Wipro and Infosys are among the major users of H1B visa, along with American giants such as Microsoft and Google that recruit resources from India. In 2014, 86 per cent of the new H1B visas issued were to Indians….
And it gets better, the slew of H1B visas from FY 2016 don’t count TOWARD THE CAP. So every single year an ADDITIONAL 85,000 people come in to take our jobs.
…Petitions filed on behalf of current H-1B workers who have been counted previously against the cap will not be counted toward the 2017 cap. USCIS said it would continue to accept and process petitions filed to extend the amount of time a current H-1B worker may remain in the U.S, to change the terms of employment for current H-1B workers, to allow current H-1B workers to change employers; and to allow current H-1B workers to work concurrently in a second H-1B position….
Many of whom are coming in with BULLSHXT DEGREES from SCHOOLS THAT DONT FXCKIN EXIST. (Michelle Malkin has a book on this, follow her on Twitter)
…Working undercover, government agents ensnared U.S.-based brokers who recruited more than 1,000 Chinese and Indian “students” to enroll in a fake university that provided them F-1 student visas, H-1B foreign guest worker visas, visa extensions, and work authorization documents. Who hired these completely unvetted workers from the phony “University of Northern New Jersey?’ Facebook, Apple, Morgan Stanley, and, gulp, the U.S. Army – ..
So US students should go BXLLS DEEP into debt to UncleSam to get a STEM degree for a job that ‘US companies’ will only give to underpaid, undereducated foreign workers? How is this GROWING THE ECONOMY again?
And BTW, Feel safer now? THE US ARMY didn’t VET their VISA HIRES, and BTW why are we hiring FOREIGN WORKERS in NATIONAL SECURITY spots?!
…Question: If Facebook, Apple, and Google pride themselves on employing the “best and brightest” talent from around the world, what are they doing hiring unscreened foreigners from the non-existent “University of Northern New Jersey” which had never conducted a class in anything, ever? –
What of the ‘Lady in Waiting’ candidate for GOPe, Paul Ryan? What has he done for US workers and wages since taking over from the Weeping Orange? He quintupled low skill H2B visas as part of his pxssing away trillions in our tax dollars-
…GOP leaders did not advertise the provision, which would effectively quadruple the issuance of low-skilled H-2B visas at a time when record numbers of Americans are not working. Previous efforts to expand the program have been highly contested, in the form of a standalone bill and as part of the notorious 2013 Gang of Eight bill that failed to pass…
…The measure inserted into the spending bill would exempt visas issued in 2013, 2014, or 2015 from counting against the annual cap of 66,000 visas, effectively allowing up to about a quarter million more foreign workers into the U.S. job market…
By the way, their definition of ‘low skill’ here includes construction jobs, trucking, food services, hospitality. You know, the only jobs left in the USA. So NO JOB IS LEFT FOR AMERICAN WORKERS. (And this is BEFORE we feel TPP!)
The second largest religion in the state of Arizona is…Hinduism. This is a direct result of H1B visas flooding our job market.
Lou Dobbs was all over this in 2008. Since then we have imported hundreds of thousands of foreign tech workers.
So on the high end STEM jobs they import on H1B visa. On the other end they import on H2B Visa. The only jobs open to American workers are waitress and bartender.
Fxck you Cruz, Americans come first. The ONLY CHANCE American workers have is Donald J. Trump.
AMERICA FIRST!! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!! VOTE TRUMP!!!!!!!
