While everyone was distracted talking about the First Lady’s hairdo, the Obama Administration quietly took some ‘Executive Action’ to help large corporations replace American workers with cheap foreign labor.
Obama intends to make it easier to bring more foreign guest workers to the United States — likely at significant cost to workers already here — by loosening the rules governing something known as the L-1B visa program. Under the program, a multinational company with offices in the United States can move workers from abroad to live and work in the U.S. for as long as five years in what is known as an intra-company transfer. There are almost no rules concerning what those workers can be paid, so there is no barrier to a company firing American employees and bringing in workers from foreign facilities to replace them at much lower pay.
Where in the hell did anyone get the idea that the Democrat Party was the friend of the working man (and woman)?
