Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

SCHUMER ATTACKS STAFFING COMPANIES USE OF H-1B

Rate this Entry

Really disappointing. Senator Schumer says on the one hand that the targeted companies are not violating the law and on the other says they are underpaying their workers - which would be a violation of the law. Which is it? And he disparages the entire staffing industry - an industry that in the US employs far more American citizens than immigrants - by questioning the legitimacy of the business model and complaining that these companies don't make anything. I'd remind Senator Schumer that most physicians at America's hospitals work for medical groups which are glorified staffing companies. Same for a lot of lawyers who handle the legal work for companies without being employed by the company. Or how about the payroll and benefits administration companies who handle that function. Or outside accounting firms who provide accounting services to an employer. Companies source out functions left and right so they can focus on their core businesses. But now that practice is somehow suspect (at least when the outside provider is from India and the worker providing the service is an H-1B non-immigrant.

    This is old news...abouth three to four days ago. Indian media reported this on monday. India is planning on retaliating with higher fees for Americans and Brits working in India. This does not help India either. As I suspected the beneficiaries would be third countries such as Canada, Singapore and China which do not plan anything crazy similar to the US and India. Part of the problem for this is the fact that economists have abdicated their responsibility and have hidden behind statistical problems and other issues related to econometric issues. Some of my colleagues are prime examples of this. Unless they get the rear in gear and addressing this issue, the third countries would benefit and Singapore and Canada will continue to have much higher economic growth. This year Singapore is slated to grow at 15% and next year I believe it will slow to high single digits as corporations re-locate there to avoid higher immigration fees.

    Well they have not exactly been a friend to illegal immigrants either, nothing has happened in immigration policy..... so I am not sure who their friends are!!

    A true wolf in sheep skin. I never trusted him in the first place when he did not introduce the CIR by Labor Day last year. I hope Harry Reid doesn't lose & the Dems still have a majority in the Senate as he is most likely to be the next Sen. majority leader.
