… And WE keep feeding the Damned Beast!Please stop using Google, Meta, and Most especially overpriced-cheap Chinese crap from Amazon. Think of it as a Bud Lite protest!***********************By Ariel ZilberSome of the biggest companies in tech including Google, Meta, Amazon, Microsoft, and Salesforce have hired foreign workers just weeks after reducing headcount by thousands of employees, according to a report.Google, which laid off some 12,000 employees earlier this year, filed applications for low-paid foreign workers to come to the United States and assume highly specialized tech roles within the company, according to investigative journalist Lee Fang.The Alphabet-owned search engine submitted applications for dozens of foreign workers who were seeking to fill roles including software engineers, analytical consultants, user experience researchers and others, Fang wrote in his Substack newsletter on Tuesday.The Google-owned self-driving outfit Waymo also received government approval for H-1B visa applications for engineering jobs, according to Fang.The newly employed workers from overseas will begin working at the company as soon as Aug. 17, Fang reported.Google defended the new hires.“We’ve continued to hire for specialized roles, overwhelmingly from the US,” a Google spokesperson told The Post. “These jobs are not replacing the roles impacted by our workforce reduction. The H-1B skilled migration visas we apply for are mostly foreign employees already working at the company in the U.S. whose current visas are expiring.”Other firms including Meta, Amazon, Zoom, Salesforce, Microsoft, and Palantir have also filed for more H-1B applications, according to Fang.The Post has sought comment from all of these companies.H-1B visas, which are used by software engineers and others in the tech industry, have been a lightning rod in the immigration debate, with critics saying they are used to undercut US citizens and legal permanent residents.They are issued for three years and can be extended another three years.
