This may not be covered in the Presidential Debates, specifically, but it should be. This is an issue ALL ABOUT AMERICAN JOBS! And, it should be front and center for each of the presidential candidates to answer.
Here is my question for the candidates in tonight's Presidential Debate:
Mr. Candidate, when American workers are suffering from the worst unemployment rates since The Great Depression, do you FAVOR granting MICROSOFT's DEMAND TO IMPORT - TWENTY THOUSAND MORE FOREIGN EMPLOYEES IN TO THE UNITED STATES TO TAKE AMERICAN JOBS?
That's what Microsoft wants. They are not content to ship American jobs overseas. Microsoft wants to bring more Foreign Workers right here into the United States to take jobs that American workers can and are fully qualified to do.
Read this short article from The Times of India for PROOF that what I am saying is true!
"Microsoft is pushing for legislation in the US to get 20,000 supplementary H-1B visas"
Microsoft says they cannot find enough trained and skilled Americans to fill their highly technical job openings, so they demand to be allowed to import TWENTY THOUSAND more highly skilled workers from, of all places India.
BULL! Read this article...
"Microsoft says it can't find enough skilled IT workers to fill open positions, but critics say the company is merely trying to justify hiring foreigners."
Tell us something Microsoft: When the richest people in the world, outside the United States, are looking around for colleges to send their kids, where do they send them? Do they send their kids to colleges in India?
NO! They, most of the richest parents in the world anyway, send their brats to the best colleges in the world, which are right here in The United States of America. These are the very same colleges American kids go to, pay huge amounts of money to, take out enormous student loans for, and after graduating they find out that YOU Microsoft would rather give a job to an imported Indian kid than a home grown highly educated American!
What's your REAL reason Microsoft, for demanding TWENTY THOUSAND more H1-B Visas to import more foreigners to take America jobs?
Is it really because you can get the Indian kids to take your jobs for less money than you would have to offer the same jobs to American workers?
BE HONEST Microsoft! QUIT LYING!!!
It's all about CHEAP LABOR!
It's always been about CHEAP LABOR!
You don't give a damn about their education level! You just know Indian kids will work cheaper than American workers, and that's the truth isn't Microsoft? Yes it is!
Hey! At least Apple is UP FRONT about assembling their products in China, because it's cheaper.
You, Microsoft, are lying your butts off about there NOT being enough highly skilled and trained Americans to fill the job openings you have here in the U.S. Microsoft YOU ARE LIARS!
It's time for All Americans to tell all the candidates, Senators and your congressional representatives...
NO MORE H1-B VISAS!
American jobs are for American workers, and that's it!!!
If there is nothing else we can do about it, perhaps it is time to launch an all-out boycott of all Microsoft Products. Buy Apple! Use Linux.
Forget Microsoft!!! Their products Zuck anyway! Remember the Zune?
Microsoft falls behind Apple for first time in 20 years
Let's all help Microsoft fall faster. Shall we?
