Bailed Out Banks Sought Foreign Workers For High-Paying Jobs


www.huffingtonpost.com

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Major U.S. banks sought government permission to bring thousands of foreign workers into the country for high-paying jobs even as the system was melting down last year and Americans were getting laid off, according to an Associated Press review of visa applications.

The dozen banks now receiving the biggest rescue packages, totaling more than $150 billion, requested visas for more than 21,800 foreign workers over the past six years for positions that included senior vice presidents, corporate lawyers, junior investment analysts and human resources specialists. The average annual salary for those jobs was $90,721, nearly twice the median income for all American households.

Seems like America has a similar situation to the UK where it's native people are being thrown onto the employment scrapheap whilst foreign workers are being used to replace them. How long will it be before the people of the US take to the streets like they are in many other parts of the world? and will the new administration in the US actually do something to stop this or will it be like the UK government and say that it's "indefensible" for the people of the UK to protest about their jobs being given away?

Yes, well said. I believe what you are seeing now is the discloser that needs to be put before the world. People need to have their eyes opened to all of these things, so it can be delt with on an even playing field.

Sould these criminal elements be brought to justice, I have reservations about lengthy prison time for those convicted.

This type of incarseration could result in conspiring plans to implement when released.

Codec Alimuntarius is a result of a war criminal with time while in Prison. Imagine the future schemes that could result from this same sequence of events.

Indeed treason and firing squad seems more appropriate for such unprecidented conspiracy against the Country and it's Constitution, Laws, and the unethical blindsiding given us without regret.

I wonder why they are doing this? Bringing in foreigners for cheap labor I understand because any job in a country like America pays more then jobs in the poorer parts of the world. However the article states that these weren't low level jobs and I bet there are thousands of Americans who would love these jobs at the pay level offered. The only reason I can think of and it does sound absurd... but maybe it's because they are more willing to help these banks loot US tax payers and carry out other practises that many Americans would not agree to?

Given that the banks have been bailed out with American taxpayers' dollars, it is not unreasonable to expect that they should help bail out American workers by hiring them, especially at a time when there is an employment crisis. Quid pro quo.

The American people should demand more accountability from our banks and financial institutions. As long as the shareholders reap big dividends, nobody seems to care what else they are doing.

They should indeed hire people from the country that is bailing them out, but will it happen? and does the government have the stones to do anything about this problem?
