Obama’s War on US Employment

Fifty percent of college grads since 2006 are unemployed or working part time. Due to many factors, these Americans are unable to secure a job commensurate with their ability, that is the bad news. The good news is that President Obama has a plan. In what can only be deemed as stroke of genius by the ‘great uniter’, Mr Obama has decided to import foreign workers. Apparently securing jobs for Americas own is not part of the Obama platform.

Perhaps my claim seems bold or unwarranted, but please let me explain. The master plan of the Obama administration and big business, is to ensure that foreign nationals gain valuable employment at the expense of American citizens.

Take China, for instance. American universities now have over 160,000 Chinese students, the majority of whom will be pursuing work in America. While some would say that the Chinese will be taking jobs for which Americans are not prepared, I have my doubts. After all, investment houses are filled with people from the People’s Republic who have studied finance- of all things. While I have no hard numbers to back up my claim, I would be willing to bet that in all those 12.7 million Americans looking for work, there has to be someone who knows a thing or two about derivatives and such. Each year the communists in China struggle to find work for millions of college grads, so ‘big ups’ to Obama and crew in helping them do so.

Another bright spot in the Obama plan was to allow 800,000 illegal aliens to remain in the USA and pursue employment. I do not know how many of the unemployed American grads compete with this contingent for work, but I suspect the number to be substantial.

Immigration is a good thing and diversity is a pillar to America’s success. In order to capitalize on this, the US has laws in place to attract the best and brightest. President Obama’s plan, however, is counter- productive. There are enough people willing to obey the rules and immigrate to the US that we do not need to reward rule breakers.

Yet, the Obama administration has proposed federal rules to “attract and retain highly skilled immigrants” that arguably increase the competition for Americans who are looking for work” Daily Iowan Here

The third leg of Obama’s war on employing Americans is his desire to attract more foreign workers. To his credit, I cannot entirely blame President Obama on this one. In Mr Obama’s deal with the devil to become our president, he sold out to the highest bidder-business. And business, as we all know, is out to make a buck. And if making a buck means eschewing a computer programmer from Racine, Wisconsin for one from Chengdu, China, then so be it. After all, the corporate fat cats are only accountable to share price and not hoards of the unemployed.

President Obama and his corporate pals would have us believe that once again, there are not enough American scientists and engineers to fill positions within corporate America. While I would really like to believe in the president and his words, once again I have my doubts. According to Steve Camarota of the Center for Immigration Studies, “there are 101,000 American engineers who are looking for engineering jobs, 244,000 who have left the labor market and 1,470,000 who left the engineering field. That’s 1.8 million Americans with engineering degrees who do not have engineering jobs.”

Yikes! Almost one and one-half a million American citizens who are skilled in the practice of engineering cannot find a job in their home country. And all the while, Mr Obama and corporate America is scouring the shores of other countries for those elusive skilled experts that America apparently ‘cannot produce’.

To me what is truly odd is that those ‘skilled forefingers’ that Obama and crew are pursuing, have studied in the USA. And those 1.5 million American souls who cannot find a job in their homeland have also studied in the USA. Thus, all else being equal, are we to assume that over one million of our finest engineers cannot compete with overseas talent? Does it make sense that America has to import sixty percent of her scientists and engineers, twenty percent of whom are from China, when have Americans without a job?

The Obama administration has scored the trifecta against American employment. They have allowed people from China to be overrepresented in our universities, legalized illegals and petitioned for more foreign workers. With unemployment hovering at 9% , one cannot help but marvel at the brilliance of Obama and crew.
