US MAY BE SETTING OFF TRADE WAR WITH NEW BORDER POLICY

Rate this Entry

Paying to beef up the border with Mexico by charging exhorbitant fees to Indian staffing companies complying with H-1B laws is probably a violation of the General Agreement on Trade in Services, an agreement that is vital to ensuring US companies are able to employ many of the 6,000,000 Americans working around the world. Senator Schumer's insinuation that staffing companies are engaging in something that wreaks of fraud is not only tantamount to slander, but it also ignors the fact that the staffing industry is a $61 billion sector of the US economy and there are now more than 14,000 staffing companies in the US, the vast majority of which employ only American workers. Almost every employer in American sources out at least some of its functions - payroll, accounting, legal services, IT, you name it - and the companies that provide these services are vital to the operation of businesses of every size.

    In the end it will help only third countries such as Singapore and Canada.

    These misguided policy efforts are a reflection of the fear politicians have to the November election. They do not want to be accused of not helping americans and helping out foreigners and the "evil staffing companies".

    "India not taking American Jobs: US Chamber"

    Literally India is taking US private sector jobs due to outsourcing..but this is a direct consequence of US restrictions. I dont like the term American jobs..what is an American job? Will greedy and selfish Americans be willing to exchange Japanese and German jobs in the US (Honda, Volkswagen, SAP etc.) for the jobs created by American firms abroad? If so, I am willing to negotiate. I am also game for discussion of kicking foreigners out of the country in exchange for sending Americans working abroad back home!
