Donald Trump is planning to sign a substantial new executive order today that demonstrates he really is following through on his campaign vows to get jobs back to our country.
The Hill informed that Trump is getting ready to sign an executive order that overhauls the H1-B visa program utilized by tech companies to attract high-skilled workers to the U.S. He will be visiting a manufacturing factory in Kenosha, Wis., to sign the order, which will make it harder for U.S. companies to search for workers overseas to fill middle-wage jobs.
Senior Trump officials shared with reporters that the present H1-B visa program is a lottery system that indiscriminately gives work visas to contracting firms that employ low-skilled, low-wage workers to substitute working-class American laborers. They added that a serious change needs to be done so that the program can go back to its original goal of bringing in high-skilled, high-paid employees to fill more specialized or technical roles.
An official said that the “lion’s share” of the visas that the program currently provides are used for “entry-level positions.”
“We’ve never had a systematic review like this,” the official stated. “These steps are broadly supported by American workers would bring these programs into compliance with their original intent. H1-B was intended to be a skilled worker program but most those using it are paid less than American workers in their field.”
