McDonalds Fires Americans To Hire Foreign Workers

McDonalds, once known as the “All-American” company, has stabbed Americans in the back by choosing to fire 70 white-collar American workers and replace their jobs with foreign H-1B workers.

Hoping to stay under the radar, McDonalds outsourced the jobs to a company who hires foreign workers, a covert practice all too frequent with businesses in America today.

The blow took place in Ohio, America’s heartland, who has already suffered the loss of blue-collar jobs given to both illegal and legal immigrants.

Typically, illegals had only been offered blue-collar jobs, but now with “white-collar outsourcing”, no American job is safe.

Breitbart reports:

“White-collar outsourcing “is not just a Silicon Valley thing anymore, it is happening all over” the country, said Steve Camarota, head of research at the Center for Immigration Studies.

 

Nationwide, the foreign population of white-collar temporary workers, dubbed “guest-workers,” now exceeds 800,000, including roughly 650,000 H-1B workers on multi-year visas.

 

The outsourcing in Columbus, Ohio, was explained as a cost saving effort by a McDonald’s spokeswoman. “To deliver $500 million in savings, the vast majority by the end of 2017, we are restructuring many aspects of our business, including an accounting function,” said spokeswoman Terri Hickey.”

In fact, not only did McDonalds fire 70 American workers, but according to Breitbart, McDonalds had the audacity to seek federal taxpayers’ funds to compensate the wages of the fired American workers.

In a bizarre effort to “save money”, McDonalds is taking jobs away from Americans, then asking taxpayers to foot the bill.

Presidential candidate Donald Trump has been campaigning against exactly this type of stunt and has promised to stop giving American jobs to foreigners.

Trump’s campaign website is clear on the need to put the American worker’s needs first:

“Real immigration reform puts the needs of working people first – not wealthy globetrotting donors. We are the only country in the world whose immigration system puts the needs of other nations ahead of our own. That must change.”

Trump continues to specifically address the H-1B visa, and calls to hire from a pool of unemployed Americans:

“Too many visas, like the H-1B, have no such requirement. In the year 2015, with 92 million Americans outside the workforce and incomes collapsing, we need companies to hire from the domestic pool of unemployed. Petitions for workers should be mailed to the unemployment office, not USCIS.”

In contrast, Hillary has campaigned and promised to provide an “unlimited number” of Green Cards to foreign college graduates, reports Breitbart.

If Hillary gets into office, her campaign promise will eliminate even more American jobs and force even more Americans into the unemployment line.

What do you think about McDonalds outsourcing jobs to foreign workers?

Do you think McDonalds should give the fired workers their jobs back?

Do you agree with Trump, that American workers have a higher priority over foreign H-1B workers?

    The H-1B is a non-immigrant visa in the United States under the Immigration and Nationality Act, section 101(a)(15)(H). It allows U.S. employers to temporarily employ foreign workers in specialty occupations. McDonald’s is hardly a specialty occupation.

    THis is funny. I have not been to a fast food place in over 2 years. Today, I drove by McDonalds and went to BurgerKing right next door.
    Anyway, the fast food places that I have gone to, most of the people are african american or hispanic. There was actually one white person in the BurgerKing today – a young lady who was the manager – I suspect. She was running around fulfilling orders while the others were running the drive up or the counter.

    So what I see is that the ones that are hurt the most with these H1B visa’s are the african americans and the hispanics – and also the customer who probably won’t be able to understand the person on the other side of the counter or the drive up speaker.

    And what about the $15 dollar minimum wage that the Democrats want. Will the H1=B visa people also get $15/hour. If so then there is no savings there.

    And why does the american people have to support this huge money making company so they can hire cheaper help. If they are hiring cheaper help isn’t htat enough for them to make “more” money. Why do they need money from the taxpayer. Of course most of the people that go to McDonalds probably. don’t pay taxes anyways.

    And then the taxpayer will be stuck also supporting the “former” McDonald worker with food stamps etc.

    I think McDonalds should pay a fine, and bring the workers back at a higher pay.

    I agree with Trump – we have a pool of workers here – give them jobs. Of course, we need to teach the children much better in the first place and not graduate them without “no smarts”. Also, kids should not be allowed to quit school when they become 16 years old (or whatever age it is). Also, those that are on the dole that are able to work ( and not these fake disability people either) should work for the town or state – even if it is just to pick up the trash that these same id10t’s throw out on the roads.

    No but Silicon Valley did the same thing as well as Disney . Trump is right jobs no matter what kind belong to Americans first Especially a since ( federal stats out this week ) every illegal cost each American $20,000.00 . Silicon Valley made their employees train their foreign replacement or lose their severance pay Most of these were loyal employees .

    Has Hitlery advised Mc Donald’s? She told the coalminers awhile ago not to worry for McDonald is hiring. Another blunt LIE again? If a McD. hires foreigners and fires American workers, then let them have all foreigners customers and refuse serving all others. Not a chance they will do that, so BOYCOTT them period!

  • twinsarecool

    Yes, and till they do I suggest AMERICANS FOLLOW MY LEAD > BOYCOTT McDONALD”S AND ANY OTHER WORKPLACE THAT DOES THIS PRACTICE. Total bullshit and if their business can take a hit that will show them we will not tolerate these actions. If they want to hire illegal’s then they should pack up their business and move to another country,not matter what business they are.

      Support local “Mom & Pop” stores and franchise holders — Before you place an order walk in and have a good look at the people likely to serve you — If you can — engage staff in conversation. It is amazing how much you can learn in a minute or three. This sounds like a lot of effort BUT you only have to do it once at each business. I now know where to spend my money locally. I have also met many hard working LEGAL immigrants who contribute to our great country.
