RE: Stop the H-1B Visa Scam<br />
<br />
Dear<br />
<br />
It's time to stop the H-1B Visa Scam designed to replace American workers with cheaper foreign workers. <br />
<br />
Fifty percent of graduates in the STEM (Science, Technology, Math, &Engineering) fields cannot find employment in STEM fields. The law clearly states:<br />
<br />
The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) requires the hiring of a foreign worker will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of U.S. workers comparably employed.<br />
<br />
The INA directs the Secretary of Labor to certify there are not sufficient workers who are able, willing, qualified and available and the employment of an alien will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of workers in the United States similarly employed.<br />
<br />
I believe what has happened at Disney and other US Companies hiring H-1B visa holders is in clear violation of INA law.<br />
<br />
These Tech workers were forced to train their replacements so there were qualified domestic Tech workers available and willing to do this work. It did adversely affect American Tech workers. If claims by Tech companies of a shortage of workers were true wages would be on the rise. Wages in the STEM fields are stagnating or declining which indicates a surplus of workers in these fields. <br />
<br />
It's time for the President and Congress to end this H-1B outsourcing scam designed to import cheaper foreign workers to the detriment of American workers. <br />

I work for a major bank and nearly 80% the technology staff is foreign workers. I have been a IT workers for over 30 years and I am ashamed of my country. Americans spend their money at these Banks, and these banks sale out American workers and hire cheap foreign labor to replace current American employees. What about our children who are graduating from college who desperately need these jobs. Is hiring cheap foreign workers to feel positions that could be easier felled by American college graduates fair? No it is not. This is unfair to future generations that will fuel the American economy.

I see 100% uptick of non Americans in tech jobs in USA.. these ppl are nice and understand why they are here but to allow our kids to go to college pay the high price and then can't find work while thousands of jobs are given to others who didn't come from here is just wrong.. And the left blowing smoker uo college kids*****getting them fi believe they will find work needs to stop.. I ask for a running count that can be view of AMericnas working verses Visa workers .. kids should know what their up against .. Also I am see older people be Fire for bs reason and young kids hired in their place.. Old is 45-65 and many time the kids are clueless in the field.. I demand a running count of age groups being let go , retired age , quit , fired vs young 19-39 being hired ..
