When we send our tech jobs to other countries, it decreases tech jobs here in America.
When we import non-immigrant guest workers to take our tech jobs, it decreases tech jobs here in America.
There are many who believe we have tech jobs going unfilled and that there are plenty of jobs out there if you want to work.
At the same time, there are many like myself who say they have the skills our employers are asking for, and all of them are saying they can’t find work.
To understand how this is possible, we need to look at how many computer and mathematical jobs we have created each year between 2010 and 2018, and we find that we have created a total of 1,100,350 jobs.
And we have had 2,776,839 H-1B Applications for those jobs as I show here.

It is very obvious once you understand this, that we are not creating enough jobs for our skilled workers here in America, and if even 50% of those H-1B applications are approved, we still are forcing American citizens out of work as it is our employers that are importing those non-immigrant guest workers to fill jobs here in America.
Once you understand this, you have to ask yourself, why aren’t tech workers united and mad as hell?
To understand that, you need to know how many tech workers there are in America as compared to all of the other jobs out there.
That orange slice is computer and mathematical jobs. It accounted for 3.1% of our total workforce in 2019.
The green slice is our architecture and engineering jobs. It accounted for 1.8% of our total workforce in 2019.
If these people getting forced out of those jobs are lucky, they may find other jobs, but none that pay what they were getting paid.
In my own case, even though I have the skills to do the job, I have been unable to find work in other fields, possibly because I never got a degree.
In most cases, I have heard you won’t stay when times get better, or you’re overqualified.
Which has left me struggling for the last 17 years, so I get your pain if you are going through what I’m going through.
But as for why American tech workers aren’t supported by the remaining 95% of workers in America, we need to understand which occupational groups account for the majority of jobs in America and it is easy to see that about 60% of our jobs in America are jobs that pay about 1/3rd of what tech jobs paid or about 30,000 per year on average.
So how do we get them to understand what is happening to American tech workers?
I believe it is by showing them that at an increasing rate, it is happening in their jobs as well.
That is why I have developed my various websites so that I can show them what is happening.
As you can see, the amount of H-1B Applications are increasing for all jobs.
Do you now understand why I spend my time trying to show what is happening?
Think about this for a second.
We create about 2 1/2 million new jobs each year on average as I show here.
And we receive about 600,000 H-1B applications each year.
And we issued about 700,00 NAFTA visas each year.
This does not even include all the other non-immigrant guest worker visas like the L-1, B-1, OPT, etc. and just in those two visas, it already accounts for about 50% of all jobs created each year here in America.
Are you beginning to understand why our homeless population is increasing, substantially?
