Displaced workers who have lost their jobs to foreign workers are now suing the Obama administration for breaking long established labor laws that say work visas cannot affect wages. It is their contention that Obama is pushing so many immigration orders through it’s seriously affecting Americans looking for jobs. Here is a chart showing the effect of immigration on average wages in the United States:
When you look at this simple graph, it becomes perfectly apparent that there is a direct correlation between foreign workers and depressed wages. A prime example of this is tech giant Southern California Edison. They laid off hundreds of computer American analysts and forced them to train foreign workers granted HB-1 visas by Obama. That’s because they had to pay Americans $95,000 a year and they only paid the foreign workers $65,000. It’s not hard to see why big business wants more foreign workers. It also explains why there are so many American workers out on the streets.
IRLI Executive Director Dale Wilcox explained US labor law in a statement:
“The law states that foreign work permits cannot adversely affect American wages, but all we’ve seen during this administration is standards of living fall and outsized corporate profits continue to rise.”
