The Hypocracy of Bill Gates' H1B/Amnesty Push

Andy_Poloni Andy_Poloni writes  |  about 6 months ago

Andy_Poloni (920253) writes ""On Thursday, a week after former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates argued for amnesty and for an unlimited number of high-tech guest-worker visas, Microsoft announced it would slash 18,000 jobs."

"Ron Hira, a public policy professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology, has "said there are 50% more graduates than job openings in the STEM fields." Microsoft's announcement hammers home his point that the IT sector has often been "an area of social mobility," and removing the caps on high-tech guest-worker visas would take jobs away from American workers and make it more difficult to climb the economic ladder.

"You've got people who come from working-class backgrounds who go into these sectors," Hira said on a conference call of scholars earlier this year that Sen. Jeff Sessions's (R-AL) office organized. "It's a way of getting into the middle class and the professional class, and that's being cut off.""
