Facebook funds red and blue fronts

As FWD.us spokesdroid Kate Hansen explained, "Maintaining two separate entities, Americans for a Conservative Direction and the Council for American Job Growth, to support elected officials across the political spectrum -- separately -- means that we can more effectively communicate with targeted audiences of their constituents."
We are constantly being told that increased immigration is good for business. That may be true, but only in the same sense that high unemployment is good for business. Business can hire employees a lot more easily when unemployment is high.

An academic economics paper debunks the myth that the USA has some sort of shortage of skilled workers. There are plenty of Americans to fill those jobs at Facebook, and there would be more if college students were not demoralized by Facebook and others preferring to hire foreigners. See also Wash. Post, WSJ, and Atlantic mag on the myth of the tech worker shortage.
