What is wrong with the people of India or the people of any country creating jobs for their own people in their own country?
I think it is great.
What I am hearing from you is that you don’t think Americans have The Right Stuff and I find that sad coming from one of our corporate leaders.
We have the stuff.
We were innovating long before the H-1B scam was implemented in 1990 by a bunch of shysters.
We will be innovating long after the shysters and our corporate and government leaders that have sold us out are long gone.
The H-1B visa program — which enables U.S. companies to hire high-skilled foreign workers — has become a political lightning rod but remains essential for American companies to hire the technical talent they need to compete on a global scale, said GoDaddy CEO Blake Irving.
“We do not produce enough technically qualified candidates in this country,” he said. “You can’t take an 18-month training program and produce a machine-learning scientist.”
President Donald Trump may soon sign an executive order revamping the H-1B visa system which, along with a related program, makes 85,000 temporary work visas available each year and is widely used by U.S. tech companies to fill technical roles. A draft executive order suggests existing policies prioritize foreign workers and aims to make sure the programs instead safeguard and emphasize “the jobs, wages and well-being of United States workers.”Irving was particularly concerned about overseas competition.
The American university system is good at training foreign workers for tech jobs, and it is essential that the U.S. government allows them to stay in the country to fulfill U.S. jobs, he said. Otherwise, we train workers from countries like China and India and then send them back to those countries to set up tech ecosystems that compete with Silicon Valley, Irving said.
