Why is it that the Information Technology Industry Council will not fight for American workers displaced by the likes of H-4 and H-1B non-immigrant guest workers?

Do highly qualified American workers not deserve the support of the Information Technology Industry Council, along with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers ?

There are millions of us out there.

We want to work too.

But these organisations will not give us the time of the day.


A group representing major Silicon Valley technology companies and global outsourcing firms has filed a court brief arguing that employment authorization for spouses of H-1B workers — which the Trump administration has promised to revoke — leads to economic growth and creates about as many jobs as it takes away.
But a lawyer on the other side argues that the claimed benefits are irrelevant to the case at hand, and that the work permission lets employers keep foreign employees under their thumbs.
The Information Technology Industry Council, along with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers, filed a brief supporting employment for H-4 visa holders in a legal case against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security by former IT workers who claim they were replaced with foreign H-1B holders. The workers argue that Homeland Security lacks the legal authority to allow H-1B spouses to work.

Business groups may point to the low unemployment rate as they lobby for more foreign workers, but unemployment statistics obscure the enormous number of people who are out of the labor market entirely and therefore do not show up as ‘unemployed’. There is a large pool of potential workers in the country who could fill jobs that require modest education.


Immigrants and Natives Not in the Labor Force:In the fourth quarter of 2018, there were a total 47.6 million immigrants and natives ages 18 to 64 not in the labor force (all education levels), up from 42.1 million in 2007 and 36.6 million in 2000.
Of the 47.6 million currently not in the labor force, 37.7 million (79.4 percent) did not have a bachelor’s degree.
The above figures do not include the unemployed, who are considered to be part of the labor force because, although they are not working, they are looking for work. There were 5.8 million unemployed immigrants and natives in the fourth quarter of this year; more than three-fourths of the unemployed do not have a bachelor’s degree.
