Hillary and non-American employees

Hillary Clinton is the presumptive front-runner. The question remains, if she does win and becomes POTUS, who will benefit?
It doesn't look as if actual American workers are high on her list.
Some workers are. THe middle class workers are not. In specific, HRC is out to INCREASE H-1B visas and CUT the jobs of actual American workers.
Here's a discussion of Hillary's acceptance of huge bux from TaTa and other Indian body shops:
She has taken so much money from TaTa and the other Indian body shops that you wonder who is getting the benefit from this. And more importantly Bill, her husband, is not limited in the manner in which he accepts contributions. He can accept millions, no questions asked.
There are three sorts of people who support Hillary who normal Americans should be very leery of:
- Immigration lawyers: These people make money by eliminating American jobs. It's piecework for them: 1 American job, $500-$1000 in their pocket
- Indian body shops: These people take fat fat fees over the actual money paid to the IT person. The fees can easily match the salary. Piecework again: eliminate 1 American job, take $500-$1000 and put it in your pocket.
- Indian expatriates: These people are the useful idiots of the outsourcing situation. The situation in India is clearly distasteful, or these people would not want to be in the US. They are now trying to get brothers, cousins, etc in. Of course, once they get a green card, a steady job and a house, their perspective changes. Then, they often are very very opposed to the H-1B thing, because many many of their established friends have been dumped for the cheap foreign IT work force.
So, why does Hillary believe that Indian IT deserve jobs? Why does she want this flood of foreign IT workers in to destabilize and destroy the IT market? BTW, the starting salaries in the IT field have not increased in 5 years. If there was such a huge demand that was unfulfilled, the starting salaries would be going up. But they are not.
When will she attend to the needs of American workers?
