Hundreds of thousand of US citizens and legal permanent residents who have engineering, MBA, computer science degrees are getting distressed and depressed in not getting jobs suitable to their qualifications. But foreigners are getting jobs very easily under the H-1B visa. Because of availability of H-1B visa to foreigners, US citizens and LPRs are being unemployed. They apply to all the companies they know. But they are refused jobs having been informed that the vacancys are filled. In fact, companies file applications with the Dept. of Labor to issue in favor of their newly appointed alien employees. When the application for issuance of labor certificate is filed by the employer, the Dept. of Labor also does not seem to seriously look into the application as to why the job that is being given to the foreign worker, is not made available to the USC or LPR. It is known to all of us that the DOL can play a great role for USCs and LPRs to get jobs by deeply investigating the applications that are filed by the employers for issuance of labor certificate. Most of the employers are reported to have mentioned in the applications that none applied for the vacancy, and they requested the DOL to issue labor certificate in favor of the person to whom they recommended. In view of the fact, USCs and LPRs have been suffering from being unemployed the US government should either abolish H-1B visa or announce that the presently unemployed USCs and LPRs of having degrees of engineering, MBA, computer science, etc. are advised to register with the DOL.
