There is NO protection for American workers

Myth: Companies must layoff H-1B temporary workers before American citizens. Companies cannot hire an H-1B if they just laid off American workers that performed the same job. Truth: There is nothing concrete in the H-1B laws concerning the pecking order in a layoff situation.  There is nothing to stop a company from hiring enough H-1Bs [...]

Additional jobs are not created for American citizens

America’s best paying jobs should be held by American Citizens. Congress sold our high-tech jobs to foreigners and industry lobbyists.  Companies continue to import foreigners at the same time they are laying-off Americans. Be American… Hire American! Replace H-1B Workers With Citizens! Myth: Hiring H-1B workers creates additional jobs for American workers. Truth: This is [...]

Get the Facts on H-1B. H-1B is one of many temporary nonimmigrant worker visa bills that allows companies in the United States to hire foreign workers.

Our educational DVD provides information about the H-1B and L-1 visa programs and how they have negatively affected the American workforce. The first part of the DVD is a movie we created that tells about the H-1B visa fiasco.  It is very powerful and effective in getting the message across. This is then followed by [...]

A Visa Loophole as Big as a Mainframe

Rebuttal from Norm Matloff Here are two articles from BusinessWeek which are reasonably good, except that once again they state falsely that employers must give Americans job priority over H-1Bs. Except for the tiny category of so-called “H-1B-dependent employers,” there is no such requirement for H-1B. However, Tata may well be such an employer, which [...]

Companies that want to replace American workers

The companies that signed this letter don’t want to hire American citizens.  They want to replace their American workers with cheaper foreign workers.  The organizations that signed this letter are devoted to helping these companies replace you! Found at nasulgc.org/Washington_Watch/Letters2000/FR_H1B.htm Individually addressed to the full House June 6, 2000   Dear Representative: On behalf of [...]

High Tech College Grad Statistics

Myth: American Colleges and Universities are not creating enough High-tech graduates. Truth: This argument is often used by those supporting H-1B.  The truth is in the real numbers. Clearly, this argument does not add-up.  American Colleges and Universities ARE creating enough High-tech graduates.  Interestingly, companies reported that they would be hiring 25-30% fewer college graduates [...]

The H-1b training program is a sham

Myth: The H-1B fees paid by employers of H-1B’s are used to provide education programs that create more American High-tech workers. Truth: Those supporting H-1B often justify their position with this statement, and actually believe that these training programs help reduce America’s reliance on alien labor.  Congressmen who claim that they would normally be opposed [...]

Wages: H-1B workers are paid less than American Workers

Myth: H-1B workers are paid the same prevailing wage as American workers are. Truth: Congress hangs its hat on this myth as well.  Although the law was written with this stipulation, the loopholes are rampant, and the law is not enforced.  This is the underlying reason that companies love to hire H-1B programmers.  Cheaper labor  [...]

Why Care? Because replacing Americans in the workplace affects everyone

Myth: H-1B workers do not affect me, why should I care? Consider the following: A country that relies upon a program rampant with fraud and deception to exploit foreign sources of cheap labor for a critical infrastructure puts itself at great risk. Replacing our country’s home-grown talent with cheap foreign labor creates greater dependence upon [...]
