I live in Michigan and our senators are up for re-election.
With all the other political literature that I receive, I noticed one that said our senator is giving away 600,000 American jobs! I was a little shocked so I read on.
According to the English Language Political Action Committee, our senator is trying to bring in 600,000 high-tech, foreign workers. The ELPAC goes on to say (this the part that got me) that half of the Computer Science graduates can't find programming jobs. That many programmers with years of experience are being passed over for low pay foreigners. That qualified, American job seekers are relegated to lower paying customer support type jobs. Is this true? Aren't there more good paying, high-tech jobs then people?
I've checked into the ELPAC a little and I think their group borders on racism. Is this simply a ploy to blame yet another problem on immigrants?
