There are many who say they speak for the Americans who have been displaced by those sending jobs to other countries and those importing non-immigrant guest workers to take the remaining jobs.
Yet you do not see their name in the papers.
And you do not see them on Television.
So for all I can see, they are doing nothing.
While FWD.us and their deep pockets are everywhere doing their best to convince you that illegal and non-immigrant guest worker visas are the same as immigration.
I do my best to get people to realize that our silence enables these things.
And I do my best to get them to realize that we have the means to compete head to head with FWD.us in Washington, DC and the World.
Why do I say that?
There have been 2,756,469 non-immigrant guest worker H-1B visas issued since this visa was implemented in 1990
Since this is a FINITE job market, this means that at the very minimum 2,756,469 Americans like myself have been forced out of the job market.
All of the numbers I have seen since I started researching this in 2007 tell me that 65% of the visas issued are for occupational group 15 which is computer and mathematics.
This means that if these 2,756,469 Americans each put up $20.00 each, we would have a war chest of $55,129,380.00 which is one hell of a good start.
Since 65% of these non-immigrant guest worker visas were for computer and mathematical jobs, if only the computer and mathematical people displaced were to put up $20.00 each, we would still have a war chest of $35,834,097.00
That is enough to get started, and trust me, there are millions more of uncounted, unemployable, former middle class wage earners that are desperate to get their jobs back.
We can make this happen if we will but do it.
If you don’t want to send me, that is fine, but send somebody.
This is my strategy if you were to send me.
- Build a network of media contacts who are sympathetic and want to do their part to Keep America At Work by ensuring that we hire American Citizens and Legal American Immigrants.
- Get them to help us to publish our email address and phone number asking those who have been forced out of the job market to contact us so that we can tell their story even if we must tell it anonymously.
- When we hear from those displaced americans, ask them what we can do to help them and do our best to help them, or make sure somebody that can help them is put in touch with them and follow up to make sure we did our part and they were taken care of.
- If it is a job that they need, find them some damned work so that they can provide for their families and if we can’t find them work, hire them ourselves to help us document any government agency using taxpayer revenue to hire or contract work to companies that do not have only American workers in their workforce.
I don’t know about you, but I didn’t pay my taxes so that our government could use that money to buy products that are not American made and hire companies that do not employ only American workers.
I paid my taxes to take care of America and my fellow country men and women.
This is a start.
It will work.
But we must do it.
One of us is bound to be an attorney who could help us form the proper 501 (c) 3 or whatever is needed.
Another is bound to be an CPA who can help us set up the proper financial safeguards to make sure that the money is used for these purposes and that any donors who want to help can receive legal IRS deductions for their donation.
We can do this
Will you help?
