AP Investigation: Banks sought foreign workers

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.

If this doesn't piss of people, nothing will. Hundreds of thousands being laid off, losing their jobs, yet the banks are bringing in foreign workers!?!

Sometimes i just can't believe what i read. Absolutely ridiculous!

It's all about the status quo right?

Greedy bastards!

Who in the hell is making these decisions? They complain about the debt so they hire people who don't have debt?

WHAT THE>>!!!!

How many times are the major banks going to give you the finger, in your face? Huh? No no. I SAID: HOW MANY TIMES?

You know how mad I am right now at those greedy bastards?
I swear I am about to go postal and say f---it.

They targeted us. Stole from us. And then went belly up and stole from us some more. And when 20 houses, 5 yachts and three airplanes wasn't enough, they had to steal some more.

Charging me to cash a check drawn on their bank because I don't have an account there.

And now this???????????????????

I just can't take it anymore. I'm losing it. Some calm me down before I do something really stupid.

How about TRAIN SOMEONE LOCALLY TO DO THE JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

God, I'm going to be sick. Excuse me.

I'm with you. Damn banks. I just don't understand how they can do this? They are raping us for bailout money and they hire foreigners!?!?!?

But they can use the lower end of government wage scales even for highly skilled workers; hire younger foreigners with lower salary demands; and hire foreigners with higher levels of education or advanced degrees for jobs for which similarly educated American workers would be considered overqualified.

There is that word again "OVERQUALIFIED".

How does that keep anyone from getting a job, to me it would be a blessing to have someone so skilled.

I also wander if the banksters are doing this to bring in 'more' Zionist to control even more banks.

Yeah, i guess "overqualified" in their minds only applies to American workers.
