STOP THE H-1B VISA OUTSOURCING SCAM

RE: Stop the H-1B Visa Scam

Dear

It's time to stop the H-1B Visa Scam designed to replace American workers with cheaper foreign workers.

Fifty percent of graduates in the STEM (Science, Technology, Math, &Engineering) fields cannot find employment in STEM fields. The law clearly states:

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.

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.

I believe what has happened at Disney and other US Companies hiring H-1B visa holders is in clear violation of INA law.

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.

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.

Respectfully,

It is this simple. Either start putting average American workers ahead of mega-corporations, who break the law at will these days, or we will ensure that you never see Washington D.C. again. In case you haven't figured it out yet, America is nearing revolt as these mega corporations stick money in politicians hands for favors. We are aware that your favors always benefit wealthy corporations. So warning. Every vote you cast will be analyzed and we will kick you the hell out of D.C. if you don't start jailing these monsters.
