FY2017 H1B Visa ‘lottery’ slots full- now US STEM workers can apply for jobs

John Cusack is Mike Enslin in Mikael HŒfstršm's 1408.

If only Mike Enslin had been able to find STEM work

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….

Sen. Judd Gregg (R-NH) for Commerce Secretary?

Well since it was Judd Gregg who personally twisted GOP arms to get the travesty that was TARP One through, I am not surprised they are looking to him…..slick move by Team Obama, it would take away one of the 58/59 GOP votes…that would end any hope of a filibuster for the GOP…the  NH Governor is a Dem, oh noes not ANOTHER Senatorial appointment saga!!!

Here is Judd Gregg supporting H1B Visas to replace American workers (disclaimer-like we at MiM in software engineering)…how does this fit into the American Middle Class Task Force I wonder, I will post a comment for Joe Biden on his newest website, lol…

This would certainly be a fit with the open immigration approach…these are HIGHLY SKILLED ADVANCE DEGREE jobs these H1B visa workers take. Jobs that Americans worked hard to pay for school to obtain..and frankly the workers come in and work for less than HALF of what Americans earn..and see our post on Satyam Computers of India who forged all their earnings for how well that goes for American business..yeah I am totally biased on this issue…

I was hoping one of the Sanchez sisters would get it….

Update DOW closes down 245 Market Update: India’s Enron: Satyam Computer CEO admits to years of fraud…ADP job numbers shocker…TWX down on earnings warning…

Update: 5:11pm EST: Markets closed with biggest drop since 12/1. DOW down 245; NAS down 53 and S&P down 28; even GLD was down 23…nothing good ahead of Friday’s job numbers and did we mention Paulson spoke again today? (as good an indicator for down markets as any, the Harry Reid of downers HA!)…yeah he is all for FAN FRED being used to buy up Mortgage at 4.00% now…basically just talking to talk as they continue to do nada about housing and the bad economic data snowballs…

President-elect Barack Obama is the “decision maker” in spending the rest of a $700 billion financial bailout fund, but should consider continuing bank capital injections, outgoing U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said Wednesday.

Meredith Whitney had a killer report out on the ongoing need for capital injections to the financials today as well…

Homebuilders are on the Hill asking for stimulus to include tax breaks for homebuyers and a low interest rate of 2.99% for first 6 mos on 30 yr mortgages…see Diana Olick of CNBC video update here

and CNBC’s Steve Liesman reports on FastMoney that ING projections suggest we could soon reach a point where we have 1 million job losses a month…meanwhile back in progressive land Paul Krugman is worried that PEBO economic stimulus could reduce unemployment by only 1-2% points or less, that simply isn’t good enough..click on our blogroll to read Paul’s column….

Original Post: DOW down 160…okay someone compare the Satyam logo and that outside the Enron building and tell me I am not seeing the pattern here, Oy!

Here at MiM we have personal stakes in outsourcing IT jobs to India, in the sense that many of OUR jobs keep getting outsourced, so we are biased, but here is the report coming over the wires:

Via CNBC:

The chairman of India’s Satyam Computer Services quit Wednesday after admitting the company’s profits had been doctored for several years, shaking faith in the country’s corporate giants as shares of the software services provider plunged nearly 80 percent.

The company’s balance sheet — riddled with “fictitious” assets and “non existent” cash — contained a $1 billion hole that could no longer be concealed after a deal intended to save the struggling company was scuppered, Chairman B. Ramalinga Raju said in a letter to the board.

See CNBC video here, November 3rd, one of MANY interviews given by Satyam Chairman on the joy and beauty of outsourcing, all while knowing his books were completely fraudulent, very bad man IMO. Int his one he claims his earnings are UP 28%, yeah right okayyy
