In business dealings, Donald Trump has ignored 'Buy American' ethos

In business dealings, Donald Trump has ignored 'Buy American' ethos”

US President Donald Trump's new executive order meant to change a visa program for bringing high-skilled foreign workers into the US is rooted in Trump's "racist ideology", according to a Green Party politician in Baltimore, Maryland. "This will stop", Trump told an enthusiastic audience in Wisconsin before signing the executive order.

"Many companies use to employ people passing out from mediocre engineering colleges on low wages and take them to USA", said the 22-year-old who graduated from a government college in Pune.

Others were not so optimistic.

He signed the so-called Buy America, Hire America order on a visit to a tool factory in the USA state of Wisconsin.

"The order seeks highest skilled and paid labour to America".

"In recent years, some employers have used the H-1B program to hire foreign workers despite American workers being qualified and available for work or even to replace American workers", the department said in a press release.

"Any reforms proposed by the Trump administration as a result of this Executive Order should be based on facts and data, not innuendo and anecdote, and must ensure that our immigration system, including the H-1B programme, remain a viable tool for US businesses seeking to build and maintain a globally-competitive workforce", Stock said.

He said that under President Donald Trump , the US will stand up to its enemies with its allies. He also said, "We are with you 100 percent", adding that the USA always seeks peace.

Those affected the most may be the immigrants from India, as they made up almost 70 percent of the recipients of H-1B visa in 2015, according to data from the State Department and Bureau of Consular Affairs cited by the New York Times. Several bills have been proposed in Congress to end the lottery system. Their bill proposed eliminating the lottery in favor of a "preference system" so that foreign students educated in the US would get priority.

Reactions in India to the USA move are mixed.

They believe that President Trump is serious about bringing back jobs to the US.

Trump said Canada has been "very, very unfair" to dairy farmers and "we're going to start working on that".

"Morale of employees has taken a visible hit", he said in Bengaluru. The tech industry has argued that the H-1B program is needed because it encourages students to stay in the USA after getting degrees in high-tech specialties — and because companies can't always find enough American workers with the skills they need. "Product-based companies have to suffer as a result", he said.

Indian workers receive more than 70% of all H-1B visas, which are initially valid for three years. They are an important gateway for many attracted by tech hubs across the country.

"So is the case with fresh applicants".

Yet he wanted to thank us, for supporting him in this time of tragedy. "I feel like in the second half, the ball stopped moving". Celtics: Finished with 16 turnovers, leading to 23 Chicago points.Thomas shot 7 of 13 from the free throw line.

The US president can not, by a simple decree, change the number of visas allocated. But said the problem is the visas are awarded in a random lottery.

"You know what, its about time", Hannity said.

"But for highly skilled and highly paid Indians like architects and software developers, it is, in fact, a good development unless the United States government reduces the number of H-1 B visas, which is very unlikely", he added.

President Trump has set the wheels in motion for H-1B visa reform.

Nasscom rejected those claims again in a statement on Wednesday.

NASSCOM president R Chandrashekhar said the body was against selective targetting of Indian companies, which account for only "20 per cent" of the visas. Trump will also instruct the Department of Homeland Security to ensure that H-1B visas are not used to undercut USA workers and wages. The move pushes to protect American made goods and reform the H-1B visa program for temporary foreign workers.
