That's right people. The capitolists have found a legal loophole that allows for slavery right here in the good ole U.S.A. It's called the H1-B work permitt. You see this is how it works.
First you take your long term dedicated employees, make them train Idian nationals how to do your job, and then threaten them that if they don't do a good job of training the Idians the compnay will deny your serverance pay. Now once you've trained these individuals how to do your job correctly they let you go. I have a friend who has worked for Microsoft for the last 22 years, and one day her boss came into her office to tell her that she would be training two individuals all the aspects of her job, and that she had 45 days to train them right. Now what's funny about this is that Microsoft had just told her that she had no reason to worry about her job being shipped out to India, but here she was training two guys that were here in america on work permitts. Well she needn't had worried so much about her job going to India because one week after the forty five days of training were over they let her go, and those two guys that she trained were now doing her job right out of her old office. As she was training these two gentlmen she had the opportunity to ask them about their wages to which they replied with excitement, "why we are making a large income for our country which amounts to ten thousand dollars a year in your money. My friend was making $45,275 a year with a complete benefit package to go with that. The two guys from India also were n ot receiving any type of benefit including medical, dental, or 401K retirement program. So you see Microsoft replaced her for less than half of her wages, and does not have to pay these people any sort of benefit at all. That works out to less than 2/3rds of the money Microsoft had been paying my friend.
People it's not only Microsoft that has been doing this, but many of the fortune five hundred companies have adopted this employment practice. Honeywell, American Express, Bank of America just to name a few. You see they don't want the people of the United States to get a bad view of them for sending jobs overseas so they hide the replacement of we the people behind H1-B work permitts for foriegn workers to replace us here right in our own back yards!!!
To top it all off they get to report to the government just how many jobs they have created for us. Then our president gets to tell the nation how there are now 200,000 more new jobs created right here last quarter alone. Now the IRS does not get to know anything about these new jobs because these people are here on working permitts so they don't have to pay income taxes like the rest of us, and because the fortune five hundred companies show that they have not shipped any new jobs overseas they get to keep face with the nation. They als get to report how they just recently doubled their work force so they look really good to Wall Street too.
I don't care what you want to call it because to me it is not only lying to the public, but it is a legal form of slavery as far as I'm concerned!!! It's not as bad as the sweatshops of the garment industry, but they are still paying people unfair wages to do the same job, and they have an employee market with better trained personel that numbers in the billions!!
Wake up folka it's not our government that is leading this economy down the road to poverty it's the fortune five hundred, and all the other capitolistic greed mongers who are taking us for that ride. Only once in the last eight years has any one single CEO, President, or COO taken a loss in his/her yearly bonus, or yearly wage for poor corporate perfomance, and I believe that it was only one (and I mean ONE) CEO that did not receive his yearly performance bonus. The high sitting officers of AIG has not given up one bonus check since we the people bailed them out, and as a matter of fact not one month after Obama loaned them the money to stay solvent those high ranking executives took a sabtical that cost in excess of 3.5 million dollars. Yep they stayed in $5,000 dollars a night rooms with every convenience you could possibly think of, including the maasues on our dimes !!!
Yes our government has lost touch with we the people what with senators making more than 20 times a year more than our lowest paid worker in their wages, but then you add to that they are getting one hundred percent medical, dental, postage costs along with a complete retirement package that would set you up at your wages for 100 years. Oh and don't forget free transportation costs including a chauffer to drive their lazy butts around. (I say lazy because most of our representatives do not even show up to vote on issues before them let alone show up to their personal offices in their home states less than 1/3 of the time.
Man I would love to only have to work 120 some days a year and earn more than $200.000 a year while I'm screwing around wouldn't you ?
Well folks there you have it. Giant Companies brining in the new help displacing you with people making less than half of your wages, and not giving them any benefits, and then don't forget all the fortune five hundred companies that have already closed their doors here in the United States only to open an even larger factory in China/ Taiwan/ Singapore/Vietnam, and a whole bunch of countries down in south america, and evading U.S taxes anyway they can, and you wonder why Johnny, and Jane can't find jobs here anymore !!!
But WAIT WAIT what about all those new jibs the small busniess' are creating now?? Well they sure as heck can't pay the kind of money you could have made when your MBA meant something, and even the big three automobile makers who are hiring right now, what about the great money they pay? well my son is on the list to be hired at one of those big ole automobile manafacturers but he is going to hire in at just about half of what a person who has been working there for four years already who makes $25.00 plus!! He will be making $14.50 an hour and will be paid a high of $19.75 an hour under the new contracts the union was able to negotiate ain't that nice? He'll be standing on the same line with other workers who are doing the same job but he'll never get to make the same money no matter if he stays there for 30 years !!!!
You guys do the math, and you're going to come up with an answer that only the wealthy are going to have a way to send their kids to college, and that the average Joe workers are going to have to let their children flip hamburgers the rest of their lives unless they can get the old man's job when he dies !!!
The United States has been bought and yet we are the one's who are going to have to pay the price !!!!
I hate to say this, but I'm so glad that I'll be dead in a couple of years other wise I might just have to over throw this government and take over the big companies just to make things right for the little guys who do all the living, working, loving, and dying in this country !!!!!!
