The New York Times on Silicon Valley’s Cheap Tech Labor Addicti…err… “Needs”

Read the full article here.

You know, when I was a kid (and when my dad and grandpa were working), rising wages was considered a good thing. It meant the following was happening:

  1. A certain sector of the economy was growing at a fast pace.
  2. High demand was outstripping the available labor supply with the appropriate skills.
  3. To rectify the shortage, employers were raising wages to attract more people with the demanded skills to work for them.

But nowadays, as we know from the globalist-serving apologists in the economics field, rising wages is a horrible disaster requiring action! Instead of increasing wages to rectify the shortage, the tech industry merely appeals to their servitors in Congress to increase the importation of cheap Indian and Asian tech labor.

Quotes from the article:

American technology companies for years have relied on a steady stream of skilled engineers from overseas to help them create their products.

It is taken as a Church dictum in the mainstream media that America depends on an endless supply of cheap labor to keep the neo-feudal Ponzi scheme going. It never occurs to anyone that the labor already here could do the job if the wages and benefits were increased. But in the Democratic Party paradise of Silicon Valley, sharing the wealth just isn’t in the cards.

The “high wages” currently paid by the tech industry are table scraps when one factors in the grueling educational requirements, the extended work hours, and the enormous cost of living and high taxes in the usual work locations. As a case example, an associate of mine lives out in Southern California as a tech worker, and he makes over $40,000 a year more than me. But due to the confiscatory taxes and high cost of living in SoCal, my take home pay is double his.

Now many of those companies and their workers are girding for expected changes to immigration policy under President Trump that the companies say could hurt their ability to tap the technical talent they need to stay competitive.

Hmmmmm…

“Competitive”

Apparently, the way Silicon Valley uses the word “competitive,” it means “able to satisfy our every whim and desire.”

Of course, it is never spoken of that the usage of cheap labor by other countries could be offset with a protective tariff, thus invalidating the argument that cheap labor is needed to stay “competitive.” But such thinking would disrupt the Democratic Party’s plans to brownify America with the Third World, and so the mainstream media never brings it up.

“You’d be shocked at the number of people who are feeling fear, calling our firm alarmed based on what’s coming out,” said Priya Alagiri, an immigration lawyer based in the Bay Area who has tech clients. “It’s not just the undocumented. Even people who are here on green cards, legally. Citizens. They’re scared.”

Could they possibly quote anyone more self-interested in a high flow of cheap labor than a Bay Area immigration attorney?

A quote from Microsoft in the article:

“Changes to U.S. immigration policies that restrain the flow of technical and professional talent may inhibit our ability to adequately staff our research and development efforts,” the company said in the filing.

Translated through the BS filter:

“Changes to U.S. immigration policies that restrain the flow of technical and professional talent may inhibit our ability to adequately staff our research and development efforts while paying peanuts,” the company said in the filing.

Orwell facepalm at this quote:

Brad Smith, Microsoft’s president, said in a statement that the company believes “in a strong and balanced high-skilled immigration system and in broader immigration opportunities for talented and law-abiding young people like the Dreamers,” a reference to young people who entered the country illegally as children but were allowed to remain by President Barack Obama.

It speaks volumes how in the mainstream media, without blinking an eye, people breaking the law are now known as “law-abiding.”

Get the barf bag for Mark Zuckerberg’s weigh-in on the issue:

On Friday, Mark Zuckerberg, the chief executive of Facebook, waded into the broader immigration debate with a post in which he said he was concerned about Mr. Trump’s actions. Mr. Zuckerberg said his great-grandparents came from Germany, Austria and Poland, while his wife’s arrived from China and Vietnam.

“We are a nation of immigrants, and we all benefit when the best and brightest from around the world can live, work and contribute here,” Mr. Zuckerberg wrote. “I hope we find the courage and compassion to bring people together and make this world a better place for everyone.”

This type of self-serving language echoes what Steve Sailer has referred to as the “Zeroth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution“, that the entire world (minus white Europeans of good moral character) has the right to immigrate to America, anytime, anywhere, for whatever reason.

“We are a nation of immigrants” is pure wordplay. I’m not an immigrant; I was born here. I do not benefit whatsoever when “the best and brightest from around the world” immigrate here to compete with me.

The whole use of this kind of wordplay is to de-legitimize the right of native-born white Americans to govern the country according their interests, and to legitimize the coast-to-coast political domination of tech billionaires and financiers.

Of course, these companies are threatening to go overseas anyways.

“The effect would end up being exactly the opposite of what Trump wants. Companies would go offshore like Microsoft did with Vancouver, Canada” to seek talent, said Robert D. Atkinson, president of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, a research group sponsored by several tech firms.

Then they get their ass nailed with a punitive tariff so high that they cannot possibly sell their products here competitively. Even 100% wouldn’t be high enough in my book.

Any changes to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, initiated under the Obama administration, could have significant effects on current tech employees who fear for their status.

So let me get this all straight:

  1. Silicon Valley underwrites the Democratic Party.
  2. The Democratic Party has become the hate-whitey party.
  3. They have become the hate-whitey party because of the “ongoing legacy of slavery.”
  4. White Southerners are the scum of the earth for bringing black slaves here.
  5. Silicon Valley brings people from abroad as wage slaves.

How these people can keep all of this doublethink straight is beyond me.
