IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: PIERRE OMIDYAR - EBAY FOUNDER

Rate this Entry

Pierre Omidyar was born a week before me in Paris to Iranian parents and immigrated to the United States at age 6. He founded eBay in 1995 and if you don't know all about eBay, then chances are someone had to print out this blog post for you because you're the last person in America who hasn't started using that new-fangled thing called the Internet.



Omidyar has become one of the richest people on the planet and is also a major philanthropist. Omidyar was lucky enough to have had parents who legally immigrated. Would he have had the same good fortune if his parents were no legal? How many future Pierre Omidyars are we losing by not passing the DREAM Act?

    Can you also highlight how many jobs have been created in the US because of companies founded by immigrants? A note on the amount of taxes paid by such companies would also be useful so people appreciate what immigrant founders (esp. in the tech industry) have done here?
