Lost Your Job To a Foreigner?
Make Sure to Thank a Republican
- The GOP has controlled Congress for 17 out of the last 21 years and Republicans have laws in place to fuck over U.S. citizens and pad the profits of Wall Street Oligarchs using cheap foreign labor.
(Breitbart) - An iconic American company, McDonald’s, has quietly outsourced the jobs of 70 white-collar professionals in Ohio to foreign H-1B workers.
The H-1B outsourcing in the nation’s heartland showcases the growing corporate use of foreign H-1B workers to replace American white-collar professionals, and it comes after companies have used waves of legal and illegal migrants to slash blue-collar jobs and wages in Ohio and around the country.
Also, the 70 Ohio jobs that McDonalds outsourced to lower wage foreign graduates are not Silicon Valley technology and software jobs — they’re white-collar accounting jobs performed by graduates from mainstream business schools. That outsourcing of mainstream business jobs spotlights the growing movement of foreign workers into all corners of the nation’s white-collar professional economy.
White-collar outsourcing “is not just a Silicon Valley thing anymore, it is happening all over” the country, said Steve Camarota, head of research at the Center for Immigration Studies.
Nationwide, the foreign population of white-collar temporary workers, dubbed “guest-workers,” now exceeds 800,000, including roughly 650,000 H-1B workers on multi-year visas.
The outsourcing in Columbus, Ohio, was explained as a cost saving effort by a McDonald’s spokeswoman. “To deliver $500 million in savings, the vast majority by the end of 2017, we are restructuring many aspects of our business, including an accounting function,” said spokeswoman Terri Hickey.
The outside contractor is Genpact, a New York-based firm that outsources work to Indians who are allowed to work in the United States for several years once they get an H-1B visa. The company is a spinoff from General Electric, and its biggest owner is Bain Capital. “Thank you for your inquiry but we are unable to comment on details of our client engagements due to confidentiality,” Gail Marold, the Genpact spokeswoman, told Breitbart News. A map of Genpact’s H-1B outsourcing contracts can be found here.
The outsourcing deal was revealed when McDonalds sought federal taxpayers’ funds to compensate the 70 fired Americans.
The outsourcing news comes as Donald Trump campaigns on the popular promise to reform the H-1B and immigration programs and while Hillary Clinton is promising to expand companies’ hiring of foreign blue-collar and white-collar workers.
Over the last 20 years, many Americans companies have outsourced their computer and software departments, often to Indian firms such as Tata Consulting. The foreign companies use the H-1B guest worker program to bring their lower wage foreign graduates to work in American office parks. That expanding trend has been extensively documented by specialist publications, such as ComputerWorld.
But American companies are now trying to outsource more varieties of jobs, including accounting, healthcare and design jobs. For example, American universities have hired H-1Bs for 100,000 prestigious jobs, including professors, lecturers, doctors, therapists, scientists and researchers. Engineering giant Caterpillar continues to hire H-1B workers in Illinois as it fires hundreds of American engineers and other white-collar workers, DeLoitte and other U.S. accounting firms have asked for more than 20,000 H-1B visas to replace American business-school graduates.
