The latest lie being propagated by the multi-national companies is that the U.S. needs to loosen up the migration laws because they cannot find the talent and help with the latest technological edge.
Now what just jumped into my mind was that these same hi-tech companies just laid off over 10,000 of their well experienced talent who brought these same companies into the technological lead these same companies are currently enjoying. There are thousands of current Stanford, MIT, etc well educated graduates who are applying and looking for hi-tech jobs with the latest cutting edge education but who are not being hired with college loans needing to be paid back.
So the question is, if the hi-tech demand is so high that companies cannot find the talent but by just laying off the well educated and experienced older workers and all the availability of freshly educated with the knowledge of the latest cutting edge technology, why do we need to import foreign workers to take these hi-tech jobs?
Maybe it is because these same companies want to eventually send to foreign nations our leading brain trust knowledge to develop the new products utilizing this cutting edge technology. I would reiterate with, “So the few segments of our lead in knowledge here in the United States verses the world, and our lead in developing technology and developing new products with this technological lead; will be sent to the countries these immigrants are coming from with new slacken immigration laws. Yes let’s just call it the last bastion of jobs being outsourced and exported into a foreign country and the U.S. be damned once again.
This now brings me to the introduction of Stephane Hessel. One of the literary world’s unexpected successes over the past year has been a book written by former World War II French resistance fighter Stephane Hessel. In “Time for Outrage,” Hessel calls for young people to resist the injustices of today’s world, and it would seem he’s struck a nerve.
Time for Outrage sold nearly 2 million copies in France and has been translated into more than 30 languages. It’s now on sale across Europe and Latin America, and will even be released soon in China, although according to his editor the publication date has mysteriously been delayed. It comes out in theU.S. this week.
In 1940, Hessel, then a soldier in the French army, was captured by German forces. He managed to escape from a prison camp in France and make his way south through Spain and Portugal to North Africa, then to London, where he joined Gen. Charles de Gaulle’s resistance forces in March 1941.
Hessel returned to occupied Franceas a resistance fighter, but was soon captured by the Gestapo and only narrowly avoided execution in a Nazi concentration camp before escaping to rejoin the Allies.
He tells his story in the sitting room of his small Parisapartment. Now 94 years old, Hessel is trim and dapper in a coat and tie. His eyes twinkle with generosity, but that spark of resistance seems to have never left him.
“If you want to be a real human being, a real woman, a real man, you cannot tolerate things which put you to indignation, to outrage,” he says. “You must stand up. I always say to people, Look around; look at what makes you unhappy, what makes you furious, and then engage yourself in some action.”
So I will close by saying, buy the book, “Time for Outrage,” and stand up against this manipulation of our employment opportunities here in the United States and its citizens by sending more well paying jobs overseas!
Viva la Occupy Movement USA!!!
