S o T o S p e a k | Ep. 440 | A Bunch of Immigration Black Pills

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but…

A Federal judge ruled against Ken Kuccinelli and USCIS, saying that employers and H1-B visa applicants don’t have to prove that work will be performed during the entire lifespan of a visa and that companies can request worker visas for the purpose of “keeping workers on hand” in case they’re needed. No way that ruling could ever be abused, right? Like we don’t already have 40 million unemployed workers in this country…

And we aren’t just talking low wage agriculture jobs, either. We’re talking high skill tech and medical jobs, as well. On a somewhat brighter note, the denial rate for H1-Bs under Kuccinelli has increased from 6% to 30%. We’re still a long way from the target goal of 100%, but we’re getting there. Trump is expected to issue new guidance on H1-Bs again this week. Hopefully he doesn’t fuck it up.

Also: chimpouts in Minneapolis (without a single complaint from the media about mass gatherings or social distancing), money printers going brrrrr, currency wars masquerading as trade wars, and a deep dive into the listener mailbag.

This is EPISODE 440 of So to Speak w/ Jared Howe!
