Make America Great Again – Hire an American?

I am not making this up.  Just ask the so-called President Donald Trump.  It’s all about H-1B visas which I truly know nothing about, but I think the real issue is Trump’s unfortunate tunnel vision abou how he will “make America Great Again.”  Shall we call this xenophobia?  Yes, let’s!  And Trumps’ followers love it.  This is not the American way!

So let’s get to the heart of this issue.  “Some critics of the H-1B visa program say that there are more than enough Americans to fill all the technical jobs in the United States.  But tech executives have long said that there are not enough Americans with th advanced math and science skills necessary to succeed in their companies.”  Unfortunately, some tech industry employees are now living under a worry of being unwelcome in the country where they “hadn’t really felt that way before.”

Are we really making America Great Again?

  1. Ugh, we are NOT making America great again. I was chatting with an Indian guy about to finish his MBA and he’s smart and great and full of ideas… but companies won’t even talk to him because they’d need to sponsor him (an expensive proposition) and in the current climate there’s no telling whether in 6 months or a year that investment would be lost b/c of new, awful policies. I read that Canada is the new Silicon Valley, and it’s not surprising in the least: https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/technology/silicon-valley-companies-craft-plans-to-move-foreign-born-workers-to-vancouver/2017/02/10/3f581b06-ee34-11e6-b4ff-ac2cf509efe5_story.html
