McDonald’s, America’s favorite fast food restaurant, has made a shocking announcement that just proved Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump right … again.
The fast food giant has quietly been outsourcing the jobs of 70 white-collar professionals in Ohio to foreign H-1B visa workers.
This corporate outsourcing of jobs from American workers is exactly why Trump has vowed to end the H-1B program when he takes office. What makes this outsourcing even worse is that McDonald’s took the jobs away from recent American college graduates.
These 70 jobs that McDonald’s outsourced to lower wage foreign H-1B visa holders were not technology jobs that required the expertise of someone especially advanced in technological skills, which is what the program was designed to make allowances for. These were white-collar accounting jobs usually reserved for graduates from mainstream business schools.
This is becoming an epidemic as nationwide the population of workers on H-1B visas has grown exponentially. These “guest workers” are now 650,000 strong all over the country.
McDonald’s stated that it did this because it made economic sense.
“To deliver $500 million in savings, the vast majority by the end of 2017, we are restructuring many aspects of our business, including an accounting function,” spokeswoman Terri Hickey said.
So they save on the cheap labor now but what happens when the guest workers’ visas expire? They will take all of their American dollars and go back to their home countries effectively ripping that money from the American economy instead of funneling it back into the economy as American workers would likely have done.
This is why it is so important to take these issues to the polls, because while The Donald wants to keep money in American hands, Hillary has no apparently interest in the issue at all. Ohioans are not happy with this, saying that media coverage on immigration is largely skewed toward the left.
“There is never, ever a reporter in Ohio who honestly covers how open immigration negatively affects Ohioans,” said Julia Aldrich, a local activist. “It is a one-sentence quote (about the negative affect) versus the rest of the article’s support for how great illegal aliens or refugees, etc., are for Ohioans.”
McDonald’s should be ashamed of itself … the most American of the fast food chains has now joined the liberal cause of Obama’s America.
