What's the problem? Microsoft will see to it that he gets an H1-B visa. Come on now, if he wants to work here, some tech company will make his dream a reality. The campus at Redmond is teeming with Asian and Indian workers H1-B visa holders...FACT. I wonder how many qualified Americans were overlooked in favor of these folks.

on a personal note, I don't think we should be offering all these H1-B visas when we have double digit unemployment.

I believe we should not give any jobs out until all of our own people are working.

that's the way it should be.

..the way most other countries operate. in thailand, china, vietnam, japan and a whole host of other countries, there is a policy of not allowing foreigners to work on jobs when there is even one local that can do the work.

commonsense policy that we should also be adhereing to.

the only reason why we do not have laws in place to do so is because nobody has bothered to look into it. expecting someone else to start the ball rolling.

it is time for we-the people to speak up.

I can see a number of bills that I want to have approved already.

1. no dual citizenship.
2. no anchor babies.
3. english - national language.

get it done.

No qualified American should have to compete with a foreign worker. Any company who utilizes H1-B visa holders should have to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt, that no qualified Americans applied for said jobs.

the unemployment figures from the department of labor are based on those who file for unemployment.

people file for unemployment so that they can get the unemployment checks.

the most that people can get unemployment checks is up to 99 weeks.

after 99 weeks, these people are not included in the unemployment stats.

are you following me still?

these people are still not working or they have only part time jobs.

if you include these people in the unemployment stats, you get a picture above the unemployment rates published monthly by the department of labor.

some say the actual unemployment rate when you include the people who have stopped working all together, or only doing part time work at over 15%.

Along with the official unemployment rate, the Department of Labor also calculates something called the employment-population ratio, which measures the percent of the U.S. adult population that has a job.
The rate currently stands at 58.7%. While it jumps around slightly from month to month, it has essentially been stuck there for three years -- close to the lowest level since the 1980s.
The ratio is also telling because it means that 41% of working-age Americans are out of a job for one reason or another.

Yes. Blame Obama because people are living longer and the baby boomers are now retiring en masse.

Obama Amnesty Begins: Halts Deportations for 300,000 Illegal Aliens; Offers 'Work Permits'

08/19/2011

by John Hill

Stand With Arizona

The Obama Administration today announced a virtual amnesty-by-decree for hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, whose deportations will be "indefinitely delayed". In addition, Obama finally announced a jobs program - but for ILLEGAL ALIENS, not citizens - as those 300,000 illegals will also become eligible for "work permits".

This action represents an administrative end-run around Congress, which twice rejected the 'DREAM Act' in 2010. As disgraceful as is this usurpation of Congressional authority, this announcement is even worse than is being reported.Our analysis reveals that - despite media focus of this action limited to so-called "Dreamer" illegal students, this new policy, coupled with the criteria established by the June 2011 "Morton Memos" which set up a joint
"DHS and DOJ working group" could expand this "indefinite delay" of
deportation to potentially MILLIONS of illegals - creating a new, massive amnesty entirely by fiat, bypassing Congress.

From the AP:

The Obama administration said Thursday it will indefinitely delay
deporting many illegal immigrants who don't have criminal records and will offer them a chance to apply for a work permit. The government will focus on sending back convicted criminals and those who might be a national security or public safety threat.

The policy change will mean a case-by-case review of approximately 3300,000 llegal immigrants facing possible deportation in federal immigration courts, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said.

There you go changing the subject again. The number of WORKING AGE people who do not have jobs is at its highest level in 30 years. That has nothing to do with the number of retired people. The fact that there are more retired people should increase the number of working age people who have jobs not decrease the number.
Don't worry though, thanks to Obama care soon people will not be living as long and fewer will be able to afford to retire.
