As you likely know, big tech companies currently handle pretty much all social media, search engines, and other technology innovations in the U.S. and the rest of the world today. As a conservative, you likely already know that nearly all of those tech companies are actively hostile against basic American values of freedom, personal responsibility, courtesy toward others, and common sense.
What you may not know is that at least one of these big tech companies not only actively discriminates against American values, but they have also been accused of actively discriminating against American workers. Tom Ozimek writes,
An administrative law judge has ruled that Facebook must face allegations that it discriminated against U.S. workers based on their citizenship by reserving thousands of jobs for temporary visa holders, Department of Justice (DOJ) documents show.
On June 8, the DOJ’s Executive Office for Immigration Review announced that the Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer (OCAHO) published a decision […] by Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) Andrea R. Carroll-Tipton that denied Facebook’s motion to dismiss a lawsuit accusing the social media giant of discriminatory hiring practices.
Facebook sought to dismiss the lawsuit, initially brought by the DOJ against the company in December 2020, which alleged that the social media giant refused to consider or hire qualified and available U.S. workers for over 2,600 positions that it hoarded for temporary visa holders it sponsored for permanent work authorization, or “green cards,” in connection with the permanent labor certification process (PERM).
“The Department of Justice’s lawsuit alleges that Facebook engaged in intentional and widespread violations of the law, by setting aside positions for temporary visa holders instead of considering interested and qualified U.S. workers,” said Assistant Attorney General Eric S. Dreiband of the Civil Rights Division, in a statement.
“Our message to workers is clear: if companies deny employment opportunities by illegally preferring temporary visa holders, the Department of Justice will hold them accountable,” Dreiband said. “Our message to all employers—including those in the technology sector—is clear: you cannot illegally prefer to recruit, consider, or hire temporary visa holders over U.S. workers.”
Wow, think about what this could do to Facebook if the DOJ succeeds in taking them to task for discrimination against American workers. Will we see Facebook taken apart and sold for scrap? While I’d like to think so, it’s more likely that we’ll see a different outcome regardless of who wins this lawsuit, but it will be interesting to watch.
