I don’t share the enthusiasm of many that President – Elect Barrack Obama chose Hillary Clinton to be his Secretary of State. I say this because she has betrayed the working people of America both white and blue collar with both NAFTA and the H1-b Visa program. The latter is not well known by most Americans. The H1-b programs is destroying those remaining high tech jobs in America that where not off shored. See the video below!The YouTube ID of UhLBSLLIhUs&hl=en&fs=1 is invalid.

While Bill Clinton was a major force for NAFTA I could forgive the Clintons for NAFTA in that the results were not wide spread until after he left office.However Hillary Clinton has destroyed the dreams of America’s high tech college graduates with her support of Corporate America’s H1-b program!

NAFTA is just one “instance” of so called Free Trade as it only effects the US, Canada and Mexico. If free trade where restricted to just North America then Mexico’s economy would soon be raised to a more level field. Currently however many corporations are now leaving Mexico for Thailand and Indonesia because as bad as the wages are in Mexico the rewards of slave labor are better for corporate America in the far east.
When you hear people saying that displaced blue collar workers could be trained for High Tech Jobs then you better understand how corporations are destroying the careers of college technical graduates with the H1-B program. But don’t worry soon marketing, accounting and finance careers will be affected according to a front page article in the March 2007 Wall Street Journal. Check out the website of the “Programmer’s Guild” for more information!
Off shoring and H1-b are not simply blue collar issues! Corporate America is waging a war on the middle class and Hillary Clinton was one of their champions. Yes to her credit she is an advocate of Universal Health Care. I just wish she would return to her loyalty of the values of American liberalism rather than multinational corporations!
