    60 minutes is on right now about H1 Worker's taking jobs from Americas

    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.

    That was something that he emphasized in the campaign and DOES need to follow through on. He's got time, but he also can't be let off the hook.

    This is almost a duplicate thread of an earlier thread here.

    Anybody who says they lost their job due to a foreign laborer is a liar and / or they are an awfully incompetent worker.

    In this country we pay for twelve years of education. If an American cannot compete with foreigners who have no education, no real job skills and can rarely master the English language, then they don't deserve the job. We cannot guarantee you a job just because you're an American no more than we can guarantee you a job because you are gay, liberal, female, black, white, heterosexual, handicapped, Christian, Muslim, Jew, or atheist.

    I don't know many American engineers straight out of high school. H1 visas go to skilled foreign workers.

    You must be dense!!! 60 minutes was specifically talking about American technology worker's getting fired, because they can get FOREIGN WORKER'S from countries like India that have the technical knowledge to do the work at half the price. These are IT teams in places like hospitals and universities that can use the H1 program to save in the cost of labour to the IT people by using an existing hole in the foreign worker program (H1 Visa).

    If the job pays $60,000 or more the companies do not have to advertise the job to America workers and do not have to show they couldn't fill it will American workers. Companies simply have to file the paper work to get the H1 Visas' and call over worker's from other countries. The foreign workers have the education and skills required to do the job the American was doing. Instead of outsourcing the jobs to India the companies just get people from India to come to the USA. VOLA!!.

    Trump has been in office 60 days. His cabinet isn't even confirmed, yet. Yet, we have the left complaining about broken promises. I'm sure you all will demand you Representative and Senator support President Trump when proposes changes this to an American First policy.

    You talk a lot of shit, but nothing to back it up with. You like calling people ignorant, but you don't do ANYTHING to educate people. You'd rather talk down to them. It sounds like you don't have anything except that exceptionally low IQ to work with.

    Talking down to me only proves who the ignorant one is. You cannot be guaranteed a job in a free market economy.

    Dense my ass. I got it. You expect someone to guarantee you a job regardless of your qualifications. If anyone on this board is dense, it's the dumb asses that want to talk down to people rather than ask them to explain their position. If anyone on this board is dense, it's the dumb asses that want to call people names just because they disagree.

    The reason you don't qualify for the job is self evident from your posts. If you cannot interact with others any better than that, the school wasted their time with you and you don't deserve to be considered. We aren't a socialist nation yet.

    Jobs belong to the employer, not the employee. Something many do not get.
