What a surprise, finally actually paying attention to the law, that this wasn’t supposed to disadvantage American workers. Imagine that this even needs to be said, how said that is, but thankfully, it is finally being said.
Via Washington Examiner:
The Justice Department warned employers Monday not to discriminate against U.S. workers by over-hiring foreign workers under the H-1B visa program.
Acting Assistant Attorney General of the Civil Rights Division Tom Wheeler said in a release that the Justice Department will “not tolerate employers misusing the H-1B visa process to discriminate against U.S. workers.”
“U.S. workers should not be placed in a disfavored status, and the department is wholeheartedly committed to investigating and vigorously prosecuting these claims,” he said.
