Trump's Curbs on Visa-Workers Creates Summer Job Boom for Americans
Jun 23, 2021 2 mins, 34 secs
Many young Americans are getting jobs and higher wages because President Donald Trump blocked the arrival of foreign J-1 visa workers for the 2021 summer season.

Companies set up new programs to train Americans for jobs and careers that would otherwise have gone to foreign summer workers.  The Baltimore Sun reported May 27 that employers in Ocean City had gotten only 100 foreign workers out of the 4,000 J-01 workers expected for the year, forcing them to train locals, the paper said:.

But the New York Times cannot credit Trump’s curbs on the J-1 and other visa workers.

The companies and their lobbyists also insist that the J-1s — and other visa workers — have no impact on Americans’ national job market and also create additional jobs for American workers and managers.

In reality, many J-1s work long hours for little pay, forcing down wages for Americans and boosting profits for business owners.

Still, the number will be limited because many embassies have backlogs and delays — and because Fortune 500 companies want their visa workers first.

Fortune 500 companies want their outsourced army of H-1B and L-1 visa workers at the head of the processing lines, farm companies are also demanding their uncapped inflow of H-2A workers, and the landscaping and resort companies want their 88,000 H-2B workers.

The labor shortage and good wages may not last long, partly because Biden’s deputies are rushing poor migrants through the southern border and are trying to get more visa workers through the airports.

Rising wages aren’t a bug; they’re a feature.  We want to get — we want to get something economists call “full employment.”  Instead of workers competing with each other for jobs that are scarce, we want employees to compete with each other to attract wrk.  We want the — the companies to compete to attract workers.

Well, wait until you see what happens when employers have to compete for workers.  Companies like McDonald’s, Home Depot, Bank of America, and others — what do they have to do?  They have to raise wages to attract workers.  That’s the way it’s supposed to be.

“Tight labor markets are good – they raise wages for workers and allow Americans to get into the workforce,” Huennekens said.  “We disguise cheap summer labor as a cultural program,” Huennekens added.

For the moment, Americans are gaining from the temporary cutoff of cheap foreign labor.

Jean Ginn-Marvin, owner of the 109-room Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, has set up an internal workforce development program [for American workers] so she doesn’t have to deal with what she sees as a volatile H-2B visa situation.

Pro-migration groups have tried to minimize public recognition of the economic damage imposed by visa workers and migration on American families and say their media-magnified focus on migrants’ personal stories has shifted the polls in Biden’s favor

The deep public opposition to labor migration is built on the widespread recognition that legal immigration, visa workers, and illegal migration undermine democratic self-government, fracture Americans’ society, move money away from Americans’ pocketbooks, and worsen living costs for American families
