No Truer Words Have Been Spoken Neil Munro

He knocked it out of the park with this one.

In 2009, the universities helped 67,804 foreign graduates get white-collar jobs under the little-known Optional Practical Training program, which allows foreigners to get professional-grade jobs inside the United States for at least three years.

By 2016, the universities worked with companies to get at least 147,498 foreign student customers into the white-collar jobs, according to the Institute of International Education, a New York-based group run by trustees from industry, education and Wall Street.

The OPT outsourcing program is great for the foreign students because it gets them a U.S. job for three years, and puts them on a track to win extremely valuable Green Cards and citizenship. It is great for employers because many OPT employees work for low salaries in the hope of eventually getting Green Cards — and also because the OPT employees are exempt from Social Security and Medicare taxes, unlike American employees.

The OPT system is also great for universities and colleges because it brings in more student customers from overseas, whose tuition fees greatly exceed the paperwork costs paid by universities to run the OPT program. That’s a big financial benefit for universities.

But the OPT guest-worker program is bad for the many ordinary American graduates who are being shut out of more than 100,000 jobs — and who also face increased lifetime competition from imported, lower-wage foreign professionals.

 Joseph Palos, a high-tech graduate from Cornell University, formally objected to the OPT program in 2015. ”Companies don’t want to hire Americans and they abuse… OPT to hire cheap immobile labor instead of hiring anyone over the age of 35, especially in software or tech areas,” he wrote to a federal agency, according to a report in ComputerWorld.

Kumar on – I daily receive horrible pathetic victims emails, nobody can complain against Indian employers in USA because they molest their own employees or h1b contractors.

What Americans do not know about H1B?
1. H1B a boy or girl brought into USA either by a desi(Indian Incs we also call body shopper who does  business with bodies) or Indian outsourcing companies. It is better I should write less about Indian outsourcing companies shit here as you guys know well about TCS etc.
2. These Indian Incs give FAKE offer letters of 80K to 100K but no salaries. They also do not mention hours worked on paychecks.
They put 25 members in one bed room apartment and it’s called guest houses.
3. This boy or girl has to search his/her project(with USA client) and then this h1b Indian Incs broker) pay salary to them whatever he/she wished to. No questions asked.
4. Here are the middle brokers comes into picture.
Because these desi guys sleep and work nothing.
5. A vendor sent an email, client wants local to PA state.
H1bs reply, he/she was local to USA.
Vendor sent an email, what is local to USA?
H1B replies, h1b is a cheap labor slave from India so work any where in USA for $25 per an hour 24*7 no ot, no comp off etc and can use them like anything.
Vendor says, no client wants only local to PA state.
6. The truth is, Vendor wants a body+ fake resume
He/she forward to another Indian vendor – chain continues…
7. Finally an America vendor takes the resume and call for interview.
8. If the candidate is in CA, but have to relocate at own expenses.
If candidate dies in road accident or at work, his/her dependents have to goto gofundmedotcom and beg dollars to return to India. No vendors or illegal vendor or managers or employers do not pay single dollar.
9. Nobody knows the length of the project.
This repeats and this is called H1B business and back home these CEOs project as job creators and collect $10000 h1b visa fees and here collect $25,000 for green cards.
I call this as pimping business.
This is what happens if America allows Indians to do business here, they converted H1B employement into pimping to prostitution.
Could you please send this to Trump and Team?
Tell them to do raids on these business houses?
I am serious.
I daily receive horrible pathetic victims emails, nobody can complain against Indian employers in USA because they molest their own employees or h1b contractors.
Thanks for sharing and forward this message.
Thanks,
Thanks, Kumar.

Any Government Agency who awards a contract to a company that does not hire ONLY Americans in America, should have its budget cut to zero.

Sanders’ “Outsourcing Prevention Act,” would bar companies that outsource jobs offshore from receiving future federal contracts, tax breaks and grants of loans from the U.S. government. It would also impose a tax “equal to the amount of savings achieved by outsourcing jobs or 35 percent of its profits, whichever is higher.”

Why is the DHS allowed to put non-immigrant guest workers ahead of American Citizens and Veterans like me?

Folks, I was born here.

I did my six years in the Navy.

I have played by the rules and this is all I have to show for it.

Yet these non-immigrant guest workers go directly to the head of the line.

Not because they are better skilled than I am.

But because they are willing to lie to get the jobs.

And because the Department of Homeland Security actively works to destroy my future and the future of your American Children, whether you be born here or a naturalized citizen who legally immigrated here.

Obama’s new regulation would increase the annual inflow of H-1B professionals, and also allow more foreign professionals to get the permanent Green Cards that allow them to stay  in the United States and eventually, to get citizenship for themselves and their family. The new regulation also benefits employers because it ensures more competition for jobs in business, academia, science, healthcare, technology, design and the media.

“This is an attempt to rewrite the Green Card [immigration] system through regulation,” said John Miano, an attorney who represents American workers hit by H-1B outsourcing. “The effect is to make an even bigger hash of the problems we have now,” he told Breitbart News. 

Companies, universities and government agencies currently employ a population of more than 1 million foreign white-collar “guest workers,” who are usually hired without any chance for Americans to apply for the U.S. jobs.

These foreign professionals are not immigrants, but are temporary workers slated to return home to Europe, India, China or elsewhere after six or seven years. The population includes roughly 650,000 six-year H-1B professionals, plus several hundred thousand additional foreign college graduates holding L-1, B-1 or NAFTA visas, plus at least 120,000 foreign graduates in the expanded OPT program.

These foreign graduates are eager to take U.S. jobs, even at very low salaries, partly because the U.S. government supplements their salaries with the chance to win the very valuable reward of U.S. citizenship for themselves, their children, siblings and parents. That taxpayer-funded supplement allows companies to hire foreign workers for much less money than requested by young debt-burdened American graduates. The hidden subsidy for foreign graduates makes it difficult for American graduates to compete against foreign graduates for many jobs that don’t require direct cooperation with customers.

Obama’s pending regulation is beneficial, according to the regulation, because it encourages “skilled nonimmigrant workers contributing to the economy to continue seeking LPR [Green Card] status … Allows [foreign] dependents to enter labor market earlier and contribute to [guest workers’s] household income … [and] may expand the numbers of [Green Card] petitioners that are cap exempt and thus allow certain employers greater access to H-1B workers,” says the new regulation, which was drafted by the Department of Homeland Security, which runs much of the H-1B program. 

“DHS has made an effort to provide additional flexibilities to as many high-skilled foreign workers as possible,” said the regulation, which downplays the concerns of Americans  professionals. “Employer demand for immigrant visas has increasingly outpaced supply in some categories and for some nationalities, resulting in growing waits for some sponsored employees to obtain their LPR [green Card] status … [resulting] in substantial inequalities and other hardships” for the foreign workers, says the DHS regulation. 

The regulation also helps foreign professionals to change jobs, and it allows H-1B professionals to stay longer than six years.

The regulation dismisses public concerns about the impact of foreign workers on Americans’ wages, and downplays the regulation’s impact on Americans’ access to good jobs. “DHS estimates in the [regulation’s notes] that there will be about 92,600 dependent spouses and children that may be eligible for [one new feature, the] compelling circumstances employment authorization in the first year (the year with the largest number of eligible applicants) which represents approximately 0.06 percent of the overall U.S. civilian labor force,” according to the regulation.

Is Keep America At Work still for sale?

I’ve noticed a lot of people looking for that page, so I have decided to recreate it.

Here is the story.

I founded Keep America At Work in 2007

I’ve been working a lot of hours for free since then and I agreed to pay myself a reasonable salary starting at $15 per hour in 2007 with a dollar per year increase every year.

As of now, this is what I am owed in back wages.

I really don’t want to sell it as these stories need to be told, but I do need money to take it to the next level and even put a roof over my head, so while I would love to find somebody that is willing to invest that much in Keep America At Work, I would sell it if offered cash as I need money to take my work to the next level.

If you have that money, I can be reached at vbiersch@gmail.com
