With the FY2016 H-1B visa cap reached ( in the first week of April (only the USCIS ( knows how many applications were submitted by outsourcing companies ( and from Bentonville, AR (, it's no surprise that groups like Mark Zuckerberg's PAC and Steve Ballmer's Partnership for a New American Economy Action Fund are pooh-poohing Jesse Jackson's claims ( that foreign high-tech workers are taking American jobs, and promoting the idea that what's really holding back Americans from jobs is a lack of foreign tech workers with H-1B visas (

Yeah, not importing enough low-paid foreign workers is what's screwing over American workers. Right.

I mean, seriously, people- would a bunch of billionaires lie in order to make more money? Would billionaires like Mark Zuckerberg or Steve Ballmer ever tell a little fib in order to make a few billion more dollars? Would they? (

This is what is happening in the US.  Companies are disqualifying American workers so that they can justify hiring foreign workers.  They claim that they can disqualify based on any reason: over qualified, requested pay too high, etc.  They don't even try to negotiate.  They come up with ridiculous requirements that are impossible to meet and then turn around and hire a foreign worker with a different set of requirements.

Immigration attorneys from Cohen & Grigsby explains how they assist employers in running classified ads with the goal of NOT finding any qualified applicants, and the steps they go through to disqualify even the most qualified Americans in order to secure green cards for H-1b workers. See what Bush and Congress really mean by a "shortage of skilled U.S. workers." Microsoft, Oracle, Hewlett-Packard, and thousands of other companies are running fake ads in Sunday newspapers across the country each week.
The real trouble with reality is that there's no background music.
