Stop H1B Visa holders taking American IT jobs

The USCIS.GOV website has this information 'U.S. businesses use the H-1B program to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise in specialized fields, such as scientists, engineers, or computer programmers.'

Yet there are many Computer Programmers and other IT professionals that are qualified and from America who are out of work. Americans should be allowed these jobs before we bring in so many people from other countries. It is about corporate greed in many cases. Companies will no longer spend a dime on new training for new technology for seasoned workers when somebody else can be brought in for a few dollars cheaper. It is not the ethical thing to do. It's not what our parents and grandparents, sons and daughters fight in wars for. Hard working tax paying citizens should have some rights to local jobs.

Why is this important?

The high number if H1B visa holders in American companies, getting good IT jobs when qualified Americans want those jobs.


Reasons for signing

  • This program require true reform. it is myth that US does not have enough IT people. These visa holders are not letting American stay in IT job. H1b hire another H1b. Telugu hires another telugu. Tamil hires another tamil.. this is most corrupt program. more than 80% visa holder does not have exceptional skills that can not be gained by Americans
  • The economic imbalance of covid relief and extended UI, while continuing to remove USA workers from the labor market is beyond measure. Charities are created for people who don't have jobs, many of whom are continuously being bypassed for the companies' choice of HIB immigrants. Struggling companies that find no local talent including FAANG, heavlity petition for more and more H1B employees. Look up the legal cases against Facebook - blocking USA citizens from even applying for staff positions.
  • These program is no longer skilled programs. It is widely used by Tamil and Telugu people of India. They don’t hire other than people from same community mentioned above without skilled. These people let go Americans and replace with h1/h4
