Bringing Third World wages

Clayton E. Cramer writes in an Idaho newspaper op-ed:
One element of President Barack Obama's immigration executive order likely to receive little attention dramatically expands the number of high-tech workers allowed to come to work in the U.S.

In some respects this is a microcosm of the entire program, driving down the wages of American workers for the benefit of a wealthy set of billionaires.

I am reaching the end of a career as a software engineer, working in this field since I was 18.

It was a good career: I was paid well to help develop high-speed telecommunications and data switching systems, but I would not encourage any young person to pursue this path today. ...

Increasing the number of immigrants allowed to work in this field will dramatically increase the number of Americans who will simply be unemployable. ...

Progressives, in their desire to bring Third World wages to the U.S., are destroying our middle class.
