Are Tech Companies Lying To Us ???

US tech companies are squealing like stuck pigs over Trump's new immigration policies. You can read about it here:

American technology companies for years have relied on a steady stream of skilled engineers from overseas to help them create their products.

Now many of those companies and their workers are girding for expected changes to immigration policy under President Trump that the companies say could hurt their ability to tap the technical talent they need to stay competitive.

Mr. Trump, who has signed a series of executive orders related to immigration, is expected to soon take similar action on visa programs for foreign workers.

But is it "technical talent" they're after, or "cheaper workers"?

Here are the facts:

Contrary to [some] assertions, there are more than 11 million Americans with degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) who lack employment in these fields, and U.S. schools are graduating two times more students with STEM degrees than are annually finding employment in these fields.

Assuming (as we are constantly told) that US graduates are just as good as foreign graduates, why aren't US tech firms hiring them?

Frankly, Zuckerberg, Tim Cook, and the rest of these clowns are lying to us. They appear to be much more interested in their personal wealth than they are in the health of the US economy and the welfare of their fellow citizens.

In fact, it is reasonable to argue they don't give a DAMN about us. Well guess what? I don't give a damn about them, either.
