Right now if you can, turn to watch 60 minutes and watch how high paid American worker's are losing their jobs to H1 workers. Companies are firing and replacing American worker's with cheap foreign workers. The Americans are asked to train their replacements or they will not get their severance.
Understandably the Americans are upset saying it feels like they are stabbing themselves in the gut and fall into a grave.
Originally the H1 Visa program was used to fill jobs that Americans' can't fill. Now companies are using the program to fill positions with cheaper labor saying Americans' can't do the job. Right now there is an
Indian worker talking to 60 minutes saying the American that trained him and the American was let go.
Their is a loop hole that says if you pay $60,000 for a job you don't have to advertise for an American to fill the job. A lot of technical jobs pay Americans in jobs $120,000 per year but companies can import a worker and pay them half of that on a H1 Visa.
Trump brought this issue up during the campaign but to date the loop hole still exists in the H1 Visa program. Considering Trump's cabinet, the idea that this loop hole will be closed is remote. He hasn't even mentioned it since being elected.
