The stimulus package has entered the job creation phase for businesses in the US. Who will get the jobs? US citizens and green card holders or fresh recruits from overseas?
Here's the status quo: a recent ad for entry-level, to be filled by a foreign worker. Why does Congress allow this? Ask them. You may also want to join Bright Future Jobs.
This one is for qualified/experienced IT friends/relatives who may be overseas. What are the chances that US citizens or green card holders will get one of these jobs?

The battle over jobs, outsourcing, offshoring, and trade policies is shaping up at last. Free Trade advocates have had their way since the early 80's. As a result, the US economy is in an unprecedented state of collapse. Obama has prodded reluctant Republicans in Congress to agree to a second stimulus package, one that would create jobs in the US. Many members of Congress have been loath to mention the employer visas by name, but the topic surfaced in an amendment to the stimulus package in the form of SA 306. The amendment, almost entirely symbolic, was included in the final draft of the stimulus package. SA 306 will have practically no effect on hiring. In principle, SA 306 is a breakthrough. The fact that Congress has acknowledged that even the minimal protections for the US workforce offered by SA 306 could be justified is a matter of some importance. Safeguards for our careers in the US that carry any weight are a goal that has yet to be realized.
There are at present a total of three lawmakers in the US congress who are recognizable voices of encouragement for Americans struggling to start or remain in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) professions. Durbin and Grassley have co-sponsored legislation in the past. SB 1035 would provide a great deal of benefit for US STEM workers. Sanders and Grassley introduced SA 306, the successful amendment to the stimulus package.
Bernie Sanders (I-VT) had this to say about the uneven distribution of wealth in the US during his interview with C-SPAN, Washington Journal, on January 29.
We have got to deal with the growing disparity of income and wealth in this country, where the top one tenth of one percent earn more income than the bottom fifty percent.
In spite of the unfathomable greed that fuels the opposition, Senators Sanders, Grassley, and civil rights groups in support of EEO persist in fighting an uphill battle to buck the established pattern of bypass and discrimination in the US. They are taking the fight to the powers that be, and challenging the employers who are determined to continue replacing American workers with inexperienced new hires from overseas.
Could it be that there is finally a meaningful discussion or even a change of any significance in the making?
Sanders' comments to C-Span regarding offshoring were framed in the context of manufacturing jobs going overseas, but he also alluded to white collar jobs... and the debate is obviously going to go in this direction. We need to finally make Congress and US employers realize that it is time to stop using the employer visa programs to bypass Americans.
...the issue that you are raising though, about the fact that when we go to stores, almost - more often than the not, the products that we're buying are not made in the United States, that our manufacturing capability has collapsed in recent years. We've lost millions of good-paying jobs, and when you go shopping, it's China, and China, and China, and maybe occasionally it's Mexico. But this issue speaks, in my view, to the disastrous trade policies that we have. That's permanent normal trade relations with China, NAFTA, the fact that American corporations have shut down plants all over this country, thrown millions of workers out on the street, moved to China then they're bringing their products back into this country. And that is not just blue-collar jobs, it's increasingly white collar jobs as well. So I am not a great fan of unfettered free trade. I think you need a good trade policy which reflects the interests of American workers. And I think that, if these large corporations want us to purchase their products, it's high time that they started manufacturing their products in this country, and create decent paying jobs here.
