President Trump signed an executive order today suspending foreign worker visas, including the technology industry’s favorite, the H-1B. The intent is to ensure American jobs get filled with American workers.
The reality? Zoom exists.
Local and distant workers have never been on a more level playing field.
And those “American” jobs will simply move elsewhere. Overseas. Up north. Down south. Anywhere, in fact, where there’s skilled labor. And that will ultimately cost the U.S. more.
