The Impact of High-Skilled Immigration on U.S. Workers - VIEW THE Complete hearing
Make No Mistake - The U.S. Government Knowingly Wishes It To Be Legal To Separate You from Your Job.
In response to the Senators' letter, the Labor Department refused to investigate the Edison Case until a complain was formally filed by an aggrieved worker. In the face of the intimidation of gag orders and the threat of being blackballed from industry, some brave workers filed complaints with Labor and the Department began investigating.
The Labor Department recently concluded that no H-1B violations occurred in the Edison case. Many key facts of this case are very clear and I think there are some important conclusions to draw here. In its findings, the U.S. Department of Labor has affirmed the following are legal:
1) H-1B workers can legally be paid much less than American workers - in the case of Southern California Edison it was 40-50% less.
2) American workers can legally be replaced by an H-1B worker.
3) It is extraordinarily easy to pay an H-1B worker much less than an American worker.
4) It is extraordinarily profitable to replace, and substitute for, American workers with H-1B and L-1 workers.
