How quintessentially American is Disneyland? It has always been the cream of the American entrepreneurial crop when it comes to innovation, creativity and imagination, but guess what? Disney is throwing American workers aside, those same innovative techno-wizzards that made the place great, for cheaper foreign labor. Then the fired employees are having to train their replacements! Read the full account here from The Daily Caller.
According to the New York Times about 250 Disney employees were told in late October they would be laid off. Many of their jobs were transferred to immigrants on temporary visas for highly skilled technical workers brought in by an outsourcing firm based in India.
This is just more visa abuse. Outsourcing companies are using temporary visas known as H-1B to place immigrants in technology jobs in the United States. These visas are supposed to be for positions where American workers with those skills cannot be found. The biggest abusers of these visas are our favorite tech giants like Microsoft, Facebook & Google-you know, some of the richest companies in the world. These companies are constantly lobbying for increases in the H-1B visa quotas and why not? It’s more money in their pockets. To hell with American workers.
And if you think all those pushing to “fast track” the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) in Congress have America’s best interests in mind, think again. The Obamanistas, government bureaucrats and 600 corporate lobbyists are negotiating the deal in secret and Congress is expected to vote on it without knowing what’s in it. How’d that work with Barrycare folks? It Didn’t. Click here to stop “Fast Track” of TPP!
Wise-up. Help pass liberty on to the next generation.
