Looks LIke trump might be taking on the Trillion dollar Tech Oligopolies and their practices of outsourcing high paying jobs for cheaper foreign labor . I eagerly await for the draft especially since The Big ones: Google,MS,IBM appear to be already crying.

Something needs to be done about the blatant abuse and lies these companies have been putting out for decades. I wouldn't care if it was fair practices but you can't compete with your counterpart if his cost of living for him and his family is less than half your cost of living.

Globalism could have been a great thing for the world, but they bastardized in the pursuit of the all mighty green.




Companies would have to try to hire American first and if they recruit foreign workers, priority would be given to the most highly paid.





Our country’s immigration policies should be designed and implemented to serve, first and foremost, the U.S. national interest,





If firms are using the program for cheap labor, I think it will affect them and they will have to pay workers more,

If tech firms are using the program for specialized labor, they may find there are more visas available.

Like all market corrections, there will be pain. But it's about time the gravy train end for the select few.

there are 330 million people in the US.
You'll NEVER convince me that there isn't an American that can do the job for you


May be we can limit H1B visas to 50 / year

Getting government to put even more restrictions on Business and how companies conduct it.... That's a good idea.

They should be required to only hire Christians.

Govt. needs to stay out of free enterprise. As a business man, I can determine who can do the job I want done with out any *+^#in bureaucrat telling me how to run my business.

What if they person you're paying to do the work is actively harboring ill intent toward your country? Or even worse using the money to harm it? What then?

Anytime a person comes here to "do work americans don't want to do" and cops an attitude about it they should just go home. All this flux of cheep labor people, as an essential part of itself and human nature, generates class based contempt from the "worker" toward his employer and beyond to his employers race and his community.

Most Mexicans that come to the US have some christian affiliation.

Ok, only hire catholics. Trump needs to sign an EO for that as well.

So, you're a no border's guy who thinks it's ok to do 'over there' what would never be permitted over here?

Free enterprise is a tool, not a religion. So as a business guy, I find it irritating when someone advocates for economic globalism, which amounts to the exploitation of essentially slave labor off shore and the evisceration of the middle class, domestically. I'd say that is against our national interest.

International trade and labor arrangements can only work when there is reasonable parity between the partners. Otherwise, it's just another means for the the wealth gap to increase, creating new billionaires over there and enriching the existing ones here even more.

So tech/IT companies are evil for outsourcing but the Trump empire are saints when they outsource?

If a company refused to hire Christians you'd be the first one calling discrimination.

Jackass...

OK. Just get ready to pay extra taxes and fines. Allow for that in your bottom line and if it works for your business, great. That is free enterprise.

What's evil got to do with it? Just bad governance and bad economic policy.

Blaming the players for the rules of a game makes no sense. It's like complaining water is wet.

Governments permitted this fiasco. Governments need to fix it.

That's a BS assumption.

Whoa, that sounds semi socialist. And I'm all for it; as long as I get to support my family the way I see fit.

I'm the guy that burrows all the money to start the damn business. That should count for something, eh?

Remember.

Coders don't have to be physically located here in the USA to do their job.

System admins, for 90% of their work, do not have to be located physically in the USA either.

Putting a ban on some tech workers is meaningless.

Google is now doing a fund to support Muslim activist in the US they plan to raise 4 million dollars.

Google is death to me, I have never liked them when they became a monopoly and I hope that the government stop contracts with them.

They do a lot of insourcing with the H1 B visas.

Those are going to become a privilege to have under Trump.
