The scumbag Silicon Valley Hillary supporting CEOs are the ones shipping in cheap labor from foreign countries to steal American jobs. Trump proves he’s all talk once again. How many campaign promises can he break before the Trumpbots realize he’s a phony?

During a tour of a tool factory in Kenosha, Wisconin, President Trump signed an executive order reviewing the H-1B visa program. The initiative allows companies to fill jobs with skilled foreign workers and it has come under scrutiny in recent years with detractors claiming it has driven down wages for Americans. Trump in particular has criticized employers for abusing it in order to avoid dipping into the expensive U.S. talent pool. Tuesday’s executive order is actually fairly modest, falling short on abolishing the H-1B visa with any recommended changes from the review likely to take years to implement.

85,000 H-1B visas are issued every year and 100,000 more are extended or re-issued. Some of America’s biggest tech companies including Google, Intel and Microsoft, are highly reliant on skilled foreign workers placed through the scheme. They are more than likely breathing sighs of relief today given the limited nature of the order but they could be at risk if the review ends up impacting the program. The workers most at risk of any changes include 126,691 visa holders from India and another 21,657 from China, according to State Department data. Last year, 82 percent of all H-1B visas were issued to recipients from India and China.

    I watched IBM bring in Indians and train them in Oracle rather than train Americans. IBM is scum, as are all the “TECH MIDGETS” who should be stripped of their money to pay for America’s defense.
    It is past time these mega-corporations PAY for the wars from which they profit and which protect them. Either PAY for the wars, or we put your Boards of Directors in the Front Lines to BLEED with us working stiffs. You want to move your corporation, OUR JOBS, to another country to dodge taxes here? So WE have to pay for your wars? Over YOUR DEAD BODIES.

    By the way ….. ZUCK thinks he can just “share” our house/Nation …..he and the rest of those “TECH MIDGETS” never served in uniform so they should “share” all their money with those who were wounded saving THEIR FREEDOM and PROPERTY. Since ZUCK does not recognize Our property rights to Our country then he has no property rights to his money.

    Americans should know that 12.5 million US experts squat in Europe! Go home Ami. In some German companies my friends have to compete with somebody who offers a 25/USD hourly rate as database administrator out of New York. That is a joke!
