Over the past year, we’ve been hearing of a number of reports where foreign nationals have been coming to the US under an H-1B visa. This special visa was designed to allow foreigners with special skills to fill needed jobs here in the US when there weren’t any qualified Americans to fill them. However, that’s not been the case of late. A growing number of companies have been hiring H-1B visa holders and then having American workers train them, only to be replaced by them. This is happening in the technology fields as well as hotels, power companies and even state unemployment offices.
Obama has been asking that the 65,000 annual H-1B visas be increased to 195,000 per year so that more Americans can be pushed out of the work force. In his typical unabashed way, Obama brazenly announced that he has established TechHire, a program to use $100 million to train H-1B visa holders to take even more jobs away from Americans. Supposedly, the $100 million will come from fees paid for H-1B visas, which means that not only has Obama been giving American jobs away to illegals, but now he’s actively selling them to foreigners.
According to Obama, there is a huge need for more technology related workers so he is turning to recruiting and training people from other countries to fill the need.
