Bryan at Hot Air has a shocking video of a law firm offering a seminar to employers that teaches them how to deliberately avoid having to hire US workers so as to get guest workers on an H-1b visa. If the immigration bill that’s currently in the Senate actually becomes law, be prepared for a massive effort by companies to find ways to dump American workers in favor of guest workers. Note how the speaker says that employers are “unfortunately” required to go through all resumes submitted for a job.
Once a guest worker program is introduced, the number of companies who try to manipulate and take advantage of every loop hole will sky rocket, and since the immigration bill favors unskilled immigrants, it’s Americans currently holding low skill labor jobs who will be hurt the most. If a company can employ a guest worker at a much cheaper wage than a US worker, he will.
