It isn’t just construction workers losing their jobs to illegal aliens from Mexico who are getting shafted by the massive influx of cheap foreign workers from the Third World. Supposedly foreigners are needed to get the work done, despite a real unemployment rate that dwarfs the official rate. Meanwhile, California is importing foreigners to process unemployment claims:
It’s nearly 8 p.m., and inside a state office building two dozen computer experts design and troubleshoot a system that will take and process millions of unemployment claims each year.
It’s a $200 million Employment Development Department project, but with the exception of two managers, everyone inside the office is from outside of the U.S. They are employed by Deloitte, a major U.S. IT company hired by the state to create and manage its Unemployment Insurance Modernization project. The mostly Indian nationals are allowed to work here under a visa program called H-1B.
American IT workers tend to be more experienced, but they also tend to be more expensive. So they are laid off in favor of foreigners, who then process their unemployment claims.
