Donald Trump dumps on Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg

We graduate two times more Americans with STEM degrees each year than find STEM jobs, yet as much as two-thirds of entry-level hiring for IT jobs is accomplished through the H-1B program. More than half of H-1B visas are issued for the program's lowest allowable wage level, and more than eighty percent for its bottom two. Raising the prevailing wage paid to H-1Bs will force companies to give these coveted entry-level jobs to the existing domestic pool of unemployed native and immigrant workers in the U.S., instead of flying in cheaper workers from overseas. This will improve the number of black, Hispanic and female workers in Silicon Valley who have been passed over in favor of the H-1B program.

В США хватает своих айтишников - выпустников вузов. Но компаниям выгоднее набирать иммигрантов по H-1B визе. 2/3 начальных позиций в американском IT занимают люди по H-1B.
