Also note, Disney didn't hire these H-1B workers directly. They hired five consulting firms to do the work, at the lowest bid, whom then hired their
own H-1B visa employees to do the contract work onsite at Disney. Yes, the outcome is the same, but the five consulting firms using H-1B visa's should
be getting the brunt of the blame. Also, Disney could fix this issue somewhat, if they added a "local worker" clause in their future contracts,
requiring a certain percentage of US citizens be on a consulting companies staff while doing projects with them.

Disney has become a all for profit entity that caters to the oversea foreign tourist that the raise in the Euro has made possible for them to enjoy to
visit the US,
This is the answer. Large retail price increases in Disney's Theme Park services and related products does not affect the bottom line, because the
majority of their current customers now are foreigners on vacation. That's one reason why they keep increasing the prices of park tickets, it keeps
local Riff-Raff out of the parks, so as a result the foreigners have a "peasant visit".

Immigration is another simple fix: Severely Prosecute the companies that hire them and they won't come. However, they won't do that because the
Agriculture industry is not only the biggest offender of illegal immigration but they are one of the biggest lobbyist.
I've noted here previously that taking "violent" action, as abhorrent as it seems, is the only way to keep immigrants from willingly coming here and
undercutting the wages of citizens. The way it stands now, companies recruit immigrants to come in, take someones job, work for less and in turn the
immigrants get to live under relatively safe conditions, while they work.
Why are people still "asking permission" or trying to "legislate" what they want? Stop asking!
People making babies and immigrants coming into the county are costing ALL OF US MONEY. Not through any fault of their own, but because of the way the
"Owners of Capital" have set up the rules, pitting their offspring against everybody else who was already alive and working.
Change can be achieved WITHOUT government backing or influence, but people have to begin to realize how children and immigrants are harming their
current subsistence and future earnings. If more people started pushing back at these people in public, they will eventually learn that they don't
want to move here and many Americans will begin to refrain from having kids.
You don't need the governments permission to harass people and Americans need to start doing it again, but this time leaving out gender, race,
religion and class, as the basis. People having kids and immigrants are the new enemy, especially since we cannot make a direct strike against the
"Owners of Capital" and cannot form Unions or Work Councils to help protect our interests in labor discussions, using collective bargaining.
People, en mass, should start saying the following to baby makers and immigrants TODAY!!!
"You have children in this day and age, shame on you!"
"You immigrated to this country recently and stole a job from an American, shame on you!"
Since "labor" does not have the bargaining chip of Unionization, nor the ability to elect true progressive politicians, opposing all forms of
immigration and taking real action against "profiteers" are the only options left. There must be a willingly cultural shift, which forcefully
decreases the population that is competing over scarce jobs in the larger market.
Changes in policy can only occur today, IF, these foreign workers started being treated the same way as workers whom "crossed picket" lines during the
Depression. Sadly, that could mean violence, until these foreign workers on visas, understand that stealing wages from Americans is not welcome by the
local population, will not be tolerated and directly results in an unsafe environment for them in which to earn said wages. Same goes for upper
management, when their personal cars drive up to the company parking lot, no holds barred, roughing ups should be happening every day. Note, grabbing
a CEO out of his car in the parking lot, IS NOT, the same thing as burning the office building to the ground. Treating an H1B visa worker as a "picket
line crosser", IS NOT, the same thing as yelling a racial slur at them in the office.
Workers today can learn a lot from those whom dealt with this same issue during the depression. I think the 1933 movie, "Heroes for Sale" perfectly
sums up the situation we are in today. Things can't change until workers start acting like the ones portrayed in this film. We are at the end of our
rope, NO MORE BEGGING, NO MORE INVESTIGATING AND NO MORE PUBLIC POLICY BUILDING. Angry mobs should be forming in front of corporate offices across the
country and I don't mean "Occupy Wallstreet" style with the proper "permits" and "free speech" zones either. Historical events that took place during
the depression provide all the working models we need today and those options do NOT include 1960's era sit-ins.
Americans need to start "roughing up" those causing the most damage to the lower classes, ON AN INDIVIDUAL SCALE and that means grabbing a CEO out of
his car in the parking lot or massive crowds showing up at his personal home on a Sunday afternoon.
The thing that many are forgetting is, these tactics worked during the Depression. All of the "civilized methods" have gotten us NOTHING so far. Where
do any of you expect us to be in another 10 years using the current "civilized methods"?
"Roughing Up", specific people, is all we have left. We are in a corner.
