ALERT – Congress: Support American workers and overhaul the H-1B visa program with the American Jobs First Act!

ACTION ALERT – Congress: Support American workers and overhaul the H-1B visa program with the American Jobs First Act!
 
The H-1B visa program has been abused for many years. The Tennessee Valley Authority was just the latest company to be caught. This summer it attempted to lay off 120 of its American technology workers and replace them with lower cost foreign H-1B guest workers.
 
The American Jobs First Act aims to stem this practice of replacing American workers. Ask your Representative to support it.
 
HR 8477, the American Jobs First Act, by Mo Brooks (Rep-AL), would:

  • stop businesses from hiring foreign H-1B workers if they have recently furloughed, or plan to furlough, their U.S. workers;
  • suspend the F-1 OPT program, which increases job market competition among American graduates by granting extendable work permits to foreign students;
  • require employers to pay their H-1B workers more than their American workers to ensure foreign labor is only used when essential; and
  • eliminate the visa lottery program that annually issues 50,000 green cards to foreigners regardless of their qualifications.

Ask Congress to crack down on visa abuse that displaces American workers by supporting the American Jobs First Act by following the directions provided.
