Apparition saidthere really should be a higher minimum wage for visa people. figure out the job, and its average pay, then set the minimum wage at higher than average for visa candidates. Give some incentive to hire local.
Because I'm sure there would be no retaliation against American VISA workers abroad. I don't think your plan is politically feasible, but it is a theoretically solid idea. [/quote
visas are theoretically supposed to be for fields where they CANT FIND enough skilled labourers for a particular job, so there should be no retaliation, it is not a competition in theory, the jobs should be available, but nobody qualifies, so you open to other countries. There should be nothing to lose for the foreigners...except that we know that there ARE people to do jobs, just that the corps just get visa people because they will work for less and lay off the locals who cost more. If that incentive was gone, their lies would be exposed, or the immigrants win with high pay, which would lead to even higher pay for locals. Also if it takes more to higher a visa, locals might actually get TRAINED to do the job by the employer..imagine that. As for the country sending visa people, the tax on stealing their people might mean the company would MOVE to the visa country source. I dont see a down side.
