H-1b Gave a Monopoly based on Job Desctruction to the Offshore Outsourcing Companies
These Offshore Outsourcing companies have grown big because the H-1b Federal Government program allows them to use DISCRIMINATON AS A TOOL to replace US citizens, with H-1b-Trainees.
The better qualified, more experienced, US citizens are never given a chance to compete for the job, by taking a competitive pay-cut.
This effectively destroys the Free Market in the United States, and gives Offshore Outsourcing companies a complete monopoly on who gets hired and who gets fired. They use that monopoly to create a larger IT monopoly offshore.
Let's face it, H-1b is a clear example of Government picking the winners and losers in the market place. And every US TAX PAYER is the loser, because the high US unemployment has ballooned our Federal Deficits.
Other losers include, the half of all US STEM graduates that cannot find a job in a STEM field, after five years of looking. You want to get ripped off, go pay 100,000$ for a STEM degree, that you'll never be able to use, thanks to the H-1b Federal Government program.
The simple fact is, unemploying U.S. citizens, as an ethnic class, is an extremely profitable business model that does nothing but feed the Offshore Outsourcing business.
H-1b is desirable because an H-1b worker is indentured to the sponsoring company. U.S. citizens are constitutionally barred from indenturing themselves.
So the disenfranchised H-1b worker will never ask for a raise, comes and goes from the United States at the will of the employer. If the H-1b is employed by an Offshore Outsourcing company (*most are), they will never get a Green Card.
If our nation's ethnic leaders are wondering why some people of color (blacks and hispanics) are finding it hard to break into tech (blacks and hispanics are 18% of all IT grads, yet less than 9% of all IT employees), it is because ALL OF THE STARTING JOBS are taken up by H-1b trainees.
The H-1b U.S. Federal Government Program is disproportianetely affecting certain people of color in the United States, more so than Asians and Whites. And our leaders should be railing for reform of this program, because we all know that all the great tech leaders had to start somewhere. With these positions stolen using ethnic discrimination, we can expect a smaller group of leaders from our ethnic minorities in the United States in the future.
*Most is referring only to the capped (65,000) standard H-1bs. (Surprize, some H-1b visas are not subject to a cap, who do you think bought that amendment?)
