If this is true, it’s antithetic to everything he’s run on.
Why give in on only this issue when he hasn’t on others?!
There’s no dearth of good tech workers here.
There’s an abundance of companies, however, who don’t watn to pay good salaries.
That last line is what’s causing this. Businesses don’t want to pay a reasoned wage for decent work.
Look, I’m not talking about entry level jobs that were never supposed to support families. I’m talking about regular jobs for adults that should pay more than minimum wage or illegal alien wages.
I don’t like the H-1 or H-2 entries.
We’ve still got plenty of workers here. The idea we’ve hired all the capable people is just a fantasy.
Theres an abundance of companies, however, who dont want to pay good salaries.
This is the third year in a row that trump has raised the quota on H2B. Everybody knows his hotels and golf courses hire lots of H2B

He’s surrounded by enemies in his administration. Even enemies in his family. He may be taking bad advice or he may have no choice. Who’s to know?
Your view on this is totally correct, according to my views from experience since 1961 to 1993 in academic and corporate hard science practical research and innovation ; B. S. Eng., M. S., Ph. D., and post-doctoral; in corporate life as a member of the technical staff.
One of the great points if the downfall is entertaining foreign graduate students that displace potential U. S.-born students in low-paid assistant roles to boost the PoP paradigm for faculty reputations, then not sending them back to countries of origin ("brain drain" of the home countries), and finally displacing U. S.-born and trained faculty members for the same reason.
This "invader" mentality is not just at the border re menial workers, it is the seducing of foreigners and giving over the universities, and eventually our country, to them.
My perception for years.
If companies and public school guidance offices were so inclined, there's an answer to two problems. These STEM programs are turning a healthy percentage of HS students with lots of advanced level math, lots of Physics and even engineering. Those students and companies that need tech hires should realize this is excellent Vocational Training (dirty words for elitists, I know). The students could take the job route instead of massive college debt. The companies could pay a little more and provide training as needed.
One has to wonder if it's only the low salaries that those corporations want. Is part of it having employees that are less likely to speak up and/or move on when they can do better somewhere else?
