Department of Labor, and Student Loan People, I am NOT going to jump through these hoops anymore

For years now, nearly a decade or more, I had hope that if I would finish my degree, I could get back to work as a Software Developer in America.

But after hearing from others who have a MBA, PHD, etc., I realized that it was not going to happen in an era when our Department of Labor and our Senators are selling H-1B Hunting Licenses to take our jobs.

I have signed these deferment forms for years now in the hope that I would get back to work.

No More.

If you want to take my birthday, my drivers license, my life, whatever, I don’t really give a shit anymore.

Subject: Student Loans past due

 

Folks, after six long years of unemployment because the Department of Labor is selling H-1B Hunting Licenses to Hunt American Jobs in America, I really no longer give a ???? what you do with these student loans as I have no way to pay for them ever when I can’t even buy a interview.

 

Respectfully,

 

Stacy Collett, when you remove physical security from the equation, you end up jeopardizing the integrity of everything you are attempting to secure

New U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions may disagree about whether there is a shortage of skilled IT workers in America, as he has asserted at hearings over the past two years, but talk to most CISOs and they will confirm that when it comes to cybersecurity talent in particular, the skills shortage is very real.

“There’s no doubt about it,” says John Masserini, CISO at equity derivatives marketMIAX Options in Princeton, N.J. “We’ve had two positions open for three months now,” a security operations center analyst and a security engineer position. The company’s location between two major metro areas – New York City and Philadelphia – makes the competition for cybersecurity talent especially tough, he says. Meanwhile, the firm’s security workload keeps growing. “I already know that by the end of this year I’m going to have a couple more openings,” he says.

Dan Kopf, it is hard for consumers to buy anything with no income and the #H1B Scam is destroying them, isn’t it?

The findings were a surprise to the researchers, who had not thought they would discover such a large loss for domestic computer scientists. “The [H-1B] program led to a lot more innovation and growth in IT, which should raise wages for everyone in that sector,” Khanna told Quartz. “But competition from foreign computer scientists should also keep wages down. We weren’t sure which would be the bigger effect.” The competition effect easily won out.

The study is exemplary of the classic immigration trade off. Almost everybody in the US gains from the H-1B program, and from immigration generally. It helps the economy grow, consumers are better off, and company profits are higher. But the workers in direct competition with the immigrants in their industry are usually harmed, and are rarely if ever compensated for that loss.

WQCS, there is NOTHING complex about the H-1B Scam #H1B

Put yourselves in their shoes.

All of a sudden management at WQCS decides to send your work to Tata.

Your world is destroyed.

There are no similar or better paying jobs to be found because all of the good paying jobs are (a) being sent offshore or (b) having non-immigrant guest workers bought in to take your job from you.

That is wrong any we look at it if you believe in this.

life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement” regardless of social class or circumstances of birth

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Dream

We have a situation in America.

The population continues to go up which means we need more jobs so our citizens can provide for their families.

Yet we send our jobs to other countries which decreases the jobs available for our citizens to provide for their families.

And we import non-immigrant guest workers which also decreases the jobs available for our citizens to provide for their families.

The only reason that you, the staff at WQCS are not mad is because it has not happened to you.

YET!

This is why I have reached a point where I believe we need to charge these corporate executives for Treason for destroying the future of Americans in America and IF FOUND GUILTY, Hang the bastards from the nearest tree.

But the Intels hire H-1Bs instead of Americans.

Unfortunately, most of the report has the “Intels Good, Infosyses Bad” theme that I have been saying is so destructive, and that issue matters here in terms of mobility issue Cun brings up. The fact is that immobility is worse under the Intels.

If the employer is simply sponsoring the worker for the H-1B work visa and not a green card, the worker is fairly mobile. He will not be subject to the H-1B lottery or cap if he moves, and the bureaucracy involved is minimal.

But if the worker is also being sponsored by the employer for a green card, the picture changes dramatically. He now would have to begin the green card process all over again if he were to switch employers. Though he may be able to retain his priority date, he still would have to go through labor certification and so on again.  Even more important, there would be lots of uncertainty involved. What if the new employer reneges on his promise to sponsor for a green card, or drags his feet? What if the new labor certification hits a snag? What if the new employer is a startup, with funding in hand for two years but merely hope for what happens afterward?

The Infosyses almost never sponsor their workers for green cards. (See Ron Hira’s work if you need numbers.) Unfortunately, some people use that as an argument supporting the “Intels Good, Infosyses Bad” point of view — the Intels are claimed to use H-1B responsibly, because they sponsor for green cards. But it is exactly the opposite — since the Intels sponsor for green cards, and then use that sponsorship as a way to trap their foreign workers, the Intels’ abuse of the foreign worker system is actually WORSE than that of the Infosyses.

But, you might counter, isn’t it true that the Infosyses generally pay less than the Intels? True but irrelevant. The two sectors are hiring different classes of people. I’ve made a car analogy on this in the past: The Infosyses are buying Toyota Corollas while the Intels are buying Camrys — but both are getting a 20% discount on the classes of cars they are buying.

And once again, the wages are not even the major point. A much bigger issue is loss of job opportunities for Americans.  To suddenly lose one’s career at age 35 or 40 is far worse than having to take somewhat lower wages. Both the Intels and Infosyses are employing foreign workers in jobs that could be filled by Americans.

And in turn, one of the most dangerous aspects of the “Intels Good, Infosyses Bad” mythology is the emphasis on the word replace, as in “The Infosyses are using H-1Bs to replace Americans.” But the Intels hire H-1Bs instead of Americans. There is no difference.

Navtej Sarna, where are those jobs that you say the #H1B have created?

“The H-1B scheme has been crucial in making US companies competitive globally in increasing their client base, in increasing their innovation. And it is the Indian tech industry, which has actually been creating jobs here,” Sarna said.

https://www.americanbazaaronline.com/2017/02/14/h-1b-visas-benefit-us-companies-said-navtej-sarna422525/

Care to show me where those jobs are?

As you can see, we are barely above the high point that we hit in 2007.

As for your claim that the H-1B has created 400,000 jobs, you may well have done that using caste, but it hasn’t been for the American citizen and this is America, not India.
