How to Make Damned sure You Don’t Hire Qualified, Interested American Job Applicants.

If this doesn’t frost your stindeens, I don’t know what will.

Here we have an article and the actual video of a law firm advising its clients and potential clients about the ways to pretend they’re interested in hiring an American when their real goal (as stated plainly in the video) is to make it appear that they are interested in hiring an American, while, at the same time, ensuring that any Americans are who are qualified for and interested in the position are rejected and that a non-American gets hired and gets a coveted Green Card.

The process involves purposefully placing ads in newspapers where the employer knows full well that the readers are not likely to have the requisite qualifications and proceeds to advocating managers to interview those Americans who are qualified and interested in the job in order to manufacture reasons for rejection.

This video has caught the attention of members of Congress, (check the above link).

I applaud them for asking the law firm to explain how this practice does not constitute unlawful discriminitation based on national origin**.

You can make up your own mind.

** Just imagine how this practice would be received if its stated goal were to take active measures to reject people for jobs based on their race.
