Worker Whose Job Was Replaced By Immigrant Regrets Voting For Obama
This testimony comes on the heels of union anger at the Obama administration for other issues as well,
The union representing these American workers says that only about half the STEM (Science, technology, engineering, math) graduates find jobs in the United States. This is primarily due to immigrants coming in who will work for less money.
National Review quotes one of these workers:
“I’ve paid my taxes, obeyed the laws and have been a good citizen supporting the community with donations,” the former SCE worker wrote. “I voted for President Obama and was appalled that he implemented a rule change, which allows work permits to H-1B spouses. My future votes will only go to candidates that support reforms to the H-1B visa program that preserve the American worker.”A union representative also said:
“In February, workers at IBM Dubuque lost their jobs as their work was off-shored to India,” Conrad said. “These tech workers are now in the unemployment line as Congress seeks to increase the use of guest workers by US corporations. This is outrageous and needs to cease. No U.S. tech worker should be in the unemployment line while tech jobs are filled with guest workers.”This testimony comes on the heels of union anger at the Obama administration for other issues as well, like the Keystone XL pipeline. The White House says it will only create 20,000 construction jobs. To a blue collar family without work, one of these jobs sounds pretty darn good.

There is also conflict between unions and Obama over trade deals.
This is just more proof that Obama is bound by an ideology and an agenda that is not aligned with the interests of American citizens.
Will this agenda inflict long-term damage on the Democratic Party?
