It is so easy to understand why all non-immigrant guest worker visas need to be stopped immediately

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has a remarkable tool named the Occupational Employment Statistics.

It is so simple to use that you would think that our Congress and Senator staff would be able to utilize it.

I personally am willing to train them how to use it and I use it because it tracks the quantity employed by a SOC Code and because the H-1B data also uses that SOC Code.

Now we are told that we need to import these non-immigrant guest workers because we are not producing enough skilled workers to fill the jobs that are being created, and history has told us that approximately 60 to 70 percent of all H-1B applications are used for computer and mathematical occupations.

Yet nobody ever discusses how many computer and mathematical jobs are created each year.

Why is that?

If you go back and look at the gain and loss column, you will realize that only two states have had a gain of 5 figures or more.

And if we sort the states by the total gained or loss, we quickly realize that not that many states have had a gain of 4 figures or more which makes us wonder why we are importing these non-immigrant guest workers.

If we total up that gain/loss column, we find that we created 1,102,000 jobs in the computer and mathematical occupational group between the years of 2010 to 2018.

And if we turn to the dashboard view at H-1B Hunting Licenses, we find that we had the following number of applications:

2010157741
2011182505
2012234197
2013273974
2014336864
2015426326
2016449814
2017427195
2018446182
2934798

So we had 2,934,789 H-1B applications for computer and mathematical jobs and we only created 1,102,000 jobs.

Are you beginning to realize why so many of us are saying that we can’t find jobs anymore?

But there are some fast talking con men out there that will tell you that these are applications, and we need to look at approvals.

So lets look at approvals and renewals

2018446182                      179,660
29347981408179

Now we find that we have issued 1,408,179 visas and renewals in that time frame.

Folks, you can’t make this stuff up.

We simply are not creating enough jobs here in America for our citizens.

And when we allow our businesses to send their jobs to other countries in the pursuit of lower wages and zero regulations to protect the workers, and we allow our businesses to import non-immigrant guest workers to take the remaining high paying jobs that our citizens need to provide for their families with, we end up with the following when we compare foreign born employed against native born employed in our civilian labor force.
