"Google. This campus in Mountain View, California offers employees comforts, privileges and perks that workers at most other companies can only envy. Ron Hero is a politic. The science professor at Howard University, who's followed the tech labor market for two decades. The media portrays Tak workers as being in a position of power and control and the world is at there is their oyster. They can switch jobs if they want, and they have huge bargaining power when in reality, most of them most tech workers are really on the receiving end. They don't have much control over their employment situation. After some crackdowns in the late 19 nineties, federal Labor regulators led up after the dot com bust. But even as labor issues persisted, sexual harassment, lack of diversity and so on, there wasn't much appetite among workers to organize. Jennifer Norn Ng is president of the Professional Employees Division at the F L. C E O. There was a general belief in the early two thousands, but folks felt that they could do better on their own and that they didn't need a union abuses in the industry continued when the tech start ups of the early two thousands began to grow. They adopted similar hierarchies and outsourcing practices as their predecessors. Adorning says attitudes among rank and file workers began shifting in 2004 NFL CEO survey of tech workers across the country found that just 33% supported a union in their workplace by 2016. That number had grown to 59%. Tech workers have since form unions at places like NPR and the software collaboration Company Glitch at The New York Times, a group of over 650 are currently trying to create the largest modern tech worker union. Alexander Peterson is an engineer organizing at Alphabet own Google. We really want to save alphabet from itself. Stop it from becoming just another one of these. Huge, inhuman, faceless entities that just bulldozes humanity for the sake of profit. That's language. Former Microsoft engineer Marcus Courtney says he can't imagine programmers using in the past. Now you have programmers and these coders that are at the top of the pyramid. They're actually leading the organizing. That's one of the reasons why it's been more successful. They're actually empowering workers who don't feel they have a much leverage to step up and join them. Well, tech workers may be more inclined to unionize. The companies are far larger. Yesterday, startups have become giant monopolies, with tens of thousands of workers and massive lobbying budgets organizing them now. Will be no small task. I'm same Arnett KQED news.

"Is always to have you along everybody we begin today with presidential proclamation number one zero zero one for the official title of which is proclamation suspending entry of aliens who present a risk to the U. S. labor market following the corona virus outbreak in somewhat more plain language president trump has decided to stop hundreds of thousands of foreign workers from getting jobs in this economy the restriction on work visas are in place through the end of the year although renewable and they apply to a whole lot of highly skilled jobs usually in stem fields also those seasonal hospitality workers and students on summer work study programs two stories on this store to start things off today the common theme of which is you know sometimes things don't work out the way you think they're gonna from the workplace culture desk marketplaces Meghan McCarty Carino is up first the idea behind cutting off V. says is that American companies will hire Americans but it's often not that simple foreign workers help the economy says Giovanni Patti and condiments to the university of California Davis these workers are allowing these companies to grow to improve their productivity they are connected with other jobs which Americans are doing he's found cities that have higher numbers of immigrants working in stem fields on H. one B. visas for specialty occupations also have more job and wage growth for American workers and when companies can't hire workers from abroad they often simply move the jobs instead says Britta Glennon a professor of management at university of Pennsylvania's Wharton school so those jobs aren't necessarily going to Americans it just means that those jobs are going to another country she found restrictions on H. one B. visas lead firms to move more jobs to China India and Canada during the early two thousands but allowing companies to hire more immigrants doesn't necessarily slow the exporting of jobs overseas says Ron hero a professor of political science at Howard University and author of outsourcing America so the net effect of H. one B. visas to speed up offshoring he says of the top thirty companies that received the most H. one B. visas half of them are staffing firms that send jobs abroad so they have the U. S. workers train the H. one B. workers who then returned home and so their their ultimate aim is to try to shift the work offshore as much as possible he advocates reforms to the immigration system to limit such abuses while still allowing for innovation and growth but warns pretty Glennon says the limits put in place by the trump administration could change the course of business for years or even decades to come it becomes too difficult to hire people in your U. S. office you may shipped more than just those immigrant jobs abroad she says once companies start moving jobs the innovation that fuels growth goes along with them hi Meghan McCarty Carino from market place so let's take a slice of the American labor force because that's what immigration is right it's a labor story let's take a slice and apply this new trump administration rule to it as well as of course the rule of unintended consequences a category of work visa known as H. one B. as Megan was saying is among the visas that have been shut off it's among the biggest categories of work visas and it is used by among other industries healthcare in this marketplace jasmine Garst reminds us we got a pandemic on Dr new cash Gopalakrishnan is an emergency cardiologists at a retirement community an hour outside of Tucson Arizona I'm the only cardiologists pulled back five days in a week these days he sees a lot of code nineteen patients he was born in India and is here.

Michelle Malkin and we're thrilled that she's visiting on the twenty second and I'm interested in buying the book interested in hearing I I guess my question would be one thing that often seems to be the case as we hear a lot of this the hard hitting stories and so forth which is very fearful one night I'm hoping that your guests can talk about in her book what people can do what's let you know how we can get involved to really make a difference and not really have to be so afraid and and give up out of fear that there's you know work there's nothing we can do I'm just well I'm a person of interest in action then now what we see with let's see was Michelle has to say and that obviously want to get involved politically that's for sure Michelle what it would be on that computer and folks who agree with you and Peter well I recommend that they read the conclusion of the book which directly answers out his questions that called the border defenders action plan and in it I recommend concrete steps that peak people can take in their own daily lives and starting small indie funding open borders anxious and standing up to many of these forces in both the establishment left in the establishment right the profit off of open borders and and part of that is putting your boots on the ground for me it was organizing the stand with ice rallies and people in New England can do exactly that you we've got this impeachment movement going on a DC the impeachment palooza circuit but you know what in many localities and jurisdictions in states citizens have the tool of impeaching judges that are subverting the law and of course that's happening in Massachusetts in your backyard you've got that Obama appointed federal judge in deer a tall wani who attacked ice agents in your state when they took an alien into custody who had received probation for visa fraud and they are actively supporting the law actively breaking the rules against aiding Abante abetting sheltering and harboring illegal aliens the state were actually Lee helping aliens elude immigration enforcement something can be done about it and teaching them is one thing and of course fighting all the funders who are out helping a laptop these district attorneys and sheriff spent and mayors to our sanctuary anarchists they're every bit as dangerous as the anti an anarchist they're wearing black man many of these anarchists where black robes Michelle wie we have a judge who is currently under federal indictment who allowed an individual to escape out the back door of the courthouse well in ice agent was patiently waiting in the lobby to take that individual into custody we have a judge up in Salem Massachusetts who basically told an illegal immigrant that if you're a citizen and put you in jail this was for heroin trafficking for a minimum of two years but I don't want to do that to you because you are it you you would lose your your green card and we have two doctors both of whom who were legal immigrants in this these the all the gist who were murdered by an ill buy of someone who's here in a green card who had attempted to rob a bank twice and was given a sentence of three hundred and sixty four days by an incompetent assistant district attorney and the judge who apparently had no clue what was going on but a very smart defense lawyer because of that sentence had been three hundred and sixty five days one day more that individual would have lost his green card and would have been deported he was released from prison five six months later and a month after that killed two legal immigration immigrants anesthesiologist who happen to live in a building that he had once worked in the stories are are numerous yes my name name is an open borders thank the judge of course to help to that illegal alien evade custody in a courtroom with Shelly Joseph and she was aided by a former court officer Wesley McGregor then you've got that radical Rachel Rollins who's carrying out the source agenda source of course funding all of these district attorney is she being one of them who are subverting the law and enacting the sanctuary policies and I'll tying the hands of agents behind their backs gagging them preventing them from communicating with local and state authorities this is a lesson we were supposed to have learned after nine eleven that local state and federal cooperation is key when it comes to immigration enforcement to keep people safe it's not just a matter of national security it's also a matter of domestic public safety you've got all of these criminal aliens whether their truck drivers a rapist that are going through the revolving door are they get so many bites at the apple in the immigration court system they have no exaggeration more right than American citizens do and this week tomorrow specifically you will see the open borders ink lobby subsidizing and perpetuating the illegal alien dreamers game on the steps of the US Supreme Court there are concrete things that people can do and the first thing to do of course is to get educated and understand this entire network of more than four hundred plus organiser Asians that I name in the book and trace all of the the money trail a lot of times it's going to go to places that are inconvenient especially if you're a conservative viewer or reader of mine I mentioned the Catholic Church and member mentioned many of these religious organizations but the fact is that the left and the religious left couldn't do this alone many beltway Republicans who hate trump and yes hate our country or are profiting off of it because they're getting money from Silicon Valley agribusiness are part of this too it is a toxic alliance that needs to be broken by grassroots citizens were

this bill call at three eighty six that Lou Dobbs that explained a little bit more about can you shed some light into that your listeners thank you yes yes thank you it's basically a giveaway to Silicon Valley and lobbyists from the India pack industry whose ultimate goal is to outsource American jobs and in fact there are Indian American researchers to understand it's Ron hero is one of them and we quote his work extensively talking about how American IT workers are being stabbed in the back by this plan which is sponsored by Mike Leigh and supported by John Cornyn of course Dick Durbin is opposing this particular bell but only because he want bigger expansion of H. one B. and the same time these these same people are also lobbying the stable green cards to the diplomas of every last F. one student visa holder in the country I mention that there are half a million of them in the country right now and unlike H. one B. which at least has a nominal cap which is bought did and

"And continence for better or worse than we think. We know what kind of book this is when it throws up its hands and says now, stop it. You know, that you only read about this kind of thing in books what about life? What about the difficulties of life? What about the difficulties and the lack of perfection of life? And that's what struck muse being thrilling unusual about the spoke. Everyone in it comes to know that the thing they thought they wanted was an illusion. Just something that takes place in death family, but we live in life. Yes. Thank you for saying this kind things about it. And as setting in death valley was such an interesting opportunity to Jack's depose, these ideas of life and death, love and loss music and silence. In fact, I think that the whole book is filled with these these dichotomies and exploring the breadth of of it all I wanted to balance it out. That's why it's balanced between the voices of the two female protagonists chapter by chapter, and as they struggle with these ideas, it allowed me to think about how I feel about these ideas, not just about telling the story but about living life. How do we live with our losses? How do we find truth in ourselves? How do we come back to the passions that we know are present in our lives in the? Acknowledgments to the book which are longer than you. Yes. The final sentence. Is Finally I sin. Gratitude an endless loop to my husband Harris for being only at my side. And. You get the feeling that this is what Clara had been afraid of that there'd be someone always that reside. And she's been accused of having to run away. And by the end of the book, she seems to have decided that it wouldn't be so bad. Maybe it won't be a romantic limping by Ron. Hero. But it will be a someone. And she is going to make an expiration to see romance can come later and long phone with. But what if we were to live in the real world? What if we were to skew own this? Stone. Complexity of storytelling. Shifting of characters live. I mean, I was very impressed. Thank you. You do that. But still mourn pressed by you're saying, let's stop it. Yes. That's just writing. Let's see what we can do. Let's see how this book can really. And so that your heart is still Rogan, but not permanently. But there's hope I hope. Yeah. I wanted to I wanted to offer a sense of possibility which you know, is important in this book throughout, but I and I felt like it was important to end that way too. I don't wanna be intrusive. But his Harris that kind of discovery for you. He we've been married for twenty one years this year. He has been that person. He is stable and wonderful. And when I discovered him I knew right away that he was the one that I wanted to be by my side for the rest of my life. And and he has turned out to be that way. And so the the relationships in the novel are sort of all I think straining toward an idealized version, and in when in reality something as beautifully perfect as being by someone side during the best and worst of times is is I think an amazing goal then. So in the strangest way imaginable, this ends as a realistic enough were the chooses. The real world over the Russian were idealized and. Testicle? Yes. Yes. Very much finding a sense of place finding a sense of home. And and that home, you know, is important not just physically in that. That idea of home is a recurrent theme throughout the story as well. A home within oneself. A truth to that discovery of identity that is a sense of returning down to know, tell me. You've written of foon of intensity and passion. And a novel which in its final chapter is going to jettison those things. When did you become sure that you could convince a reader? To go with the road on taken. Yes. I don't know that I ever decided that I was capable of convincing the reader, but I hoped that I could bring them along for the ride because that decision to end it the way that I did felt very natural to me by the time. I knew the characters well enough it felt like the in fact only possible way to conclude this portion of their story, we'll to me too. But you see you the novelist. So you know, what you're doing? I'm the reader for whom newly everything is surprise. Yes. So in those lists over thirteen pages, I'm going oh. And then only again only again. Oh god. The right man was really the wrong, man. Really look at him ordering her rounds will. Look at him making her believe that she can be substituted by an old piano on that. She could play the role of his mother not his own life own own own well, poor both of them in lucky Clara that the right man is on him. Yes. And here is a little insider information. I don't always know what I'm doing. And I too can be surprised even as I'm writing. And that certainly was true in the case of this story. I was surprised and and moved by their choices many times along the way. Well, you convinced music over and over again because you move from description to dialogue and often the dialogue you have an inner ear for it. Thank you, the convinces us own own the storytelling was the lie. This is how these people really talk to one another and this is no way to tone.

"Number four one five eighty eighty eight ten. Eight zero eight zero eight one zero semi your tweets at Ethan Bearman on. I saw some really disturbing news today that I think only lends itself to. Are further focus on. Well, regulating Silicon Valley, this is this is extreme to me. This is. This is just off the charts. What is coming out? And I'm I've I've spoken very positively Larry Ellison and oracle over time. But if these allegations are true, this is absolutely disheartening here in the bay not just the bay area, but broader because these latest allegations. So I don't know if you saw the other week there was a lawsuit filed regarding. Discrimination at oracle that it's something like a four hundred million dollar lawsuit that they had intentionally discriminated women and minorities got hired at a lower rate. And then as a result of that lower introduction pay rate they ended up not getting as much over the years and whatnot. And that was pretty aggressive. Of course, the company is denying everything as they do. That's just the way it works. But then this last one that I just saw. Many of us have had issues with the H one B visa program. We've seen the abuse over the years we've seen what what I would call fraud we've seen where the companies take full advantage. There are American workers who are fully qualified to do the job and companies will avoid paying them and bring in somebody from out of the country and Pam less. And we know that we've seen the abuse happen. I've seen it firsthand. I worked for a tech company a small tech company who intentionally? Advertised a specific job knowing that nobody would take it at that price. There's no that wasn't the market rate for the job. So of course, nobody it to their able to bring in H one B visa worker. Nothing wrong with the worker. It's great guy. Wonderful wonderful really enjoyed working with him everything else. But it was fraud. That's not what that program is for. They paid they paid. This guy may be half. When an American worker would get to do the same job. So these their workers. So it's not like other instances where we were short workers. There were workers. They just weren't willing to pay. Well, that's the allegation right now. This latest revelation. It's in the Mercury News against oracle. The headline H one B oracle favored hiring foreign graduates of US colleges. Over American grads. What? So literally, I can pay because their foreign they need a sponsor it, Sarah. There's an optional practical training permit or an H one B visa, I'm going to pay him less, and because they're here on a special visa, maybe I don't have to treat them as well. Maybe I make them work longer days than I would an American citizen knowing that they're not gonna complain about it. Because guess what they're here on a work visa. I'm just saying I've seen that happen. Wait. You want me to work a fourteen hour day. I'm gonna work ten. Okay. Well that guy over there at work fourteen. Howard university. Professor and critic Ron hero is quoted in this. Mercury News article. He said and I quote industries key argument for more cheap H one B and OBT guestworkers that. There's a shortage of US talent that argument completely falls apart in the face of these findings. In fact, the industry is using the visa programs for cheaper guestworkers undercutting US workers damaging the US talent pipeline, which is true and exacerbating its woeful record on workforce. Diversity also true. This is outrageous again, we have talked numerous times about H one B visa abuse. I'm not against H one B visas. I think that there is a valid place for them. Hey, high quality talent bring 'em in bring him in. What you're paying Americans to do the job again. They're already Americans L do the job. But hey, we identify top quality talent really super smart PHD student, whatever a top data analytic Spurs. I want him here too. I want them working in the United States. I absolutely support that, but you pay them a market rate for it, not a lower rate, and you pay they have all the same protections of everybody else work in the same hours and all that business. There aren't too shortage of American workers in these fields. They artificially create a shortage because they disincentivize Americans for being in the field. I know after the dot com crash. I know a lot of people who left technology and the tech companies really focused on abusing the H one B visa program. But oracle is in big trouble. If this holds the Labor Department in their court filing said. That oracle vast majority of the firms hires through its college recruiting prime where non-citizen visa holders from Asia. And I quote, these students required work authorization remain the United States after graduation. In other words, oracle overwhelmingly hires workers dependent on oracle for sponsorship to remain in the United States. This preference for a workforce. That is dependent dependent on oracle for authorization and work in the United States lends itself to suppress of that workforce is wages of about five. That's according to the Labor Department's court filing. Of about five hundred recent college and university graduates hired into three job categories at oracle from two thousand thirteen to two thousand sixteen some ninety percent were Asian. That's that's unfathomable, by the way. That's unfathomable. According to the lawsuit a court at the same time, Asians blacks and women were quote, systematically underpaid. So that's four hundred million dollars in lost wages as well. Again, oracle says, it's meritless cherry pick statistics complete fans etcetera. If there's any truth in this. This is a major major problem. I'm so disappointed that we are still at this place. Where the big tech companies are going to abuse the hell out of the h one visa program. This case in Oracle's case, it's alleged of course, by laser Labor Department. But I know some of you have personal stories of seeing this happen as you've worked in Silicon Valley and elsewhere where this is going on around you. I again, I I've seen it first hand how the system gets abused firsthand. And I don't appreciate and again. I welcome. South Asian East Asian eastern European workers intact. I think it's great. And I want them to work with oracle with Google with everybody else. I don't want him displacing American workers. And I want them paid the market wage if they're coming here to work, not a lower wage and not extra hours it cetera. It's deeply problematic and at the same time apparently. Bills introduced in the house and Senate. Are going through acts per country green card limits, which I am okay. With that. So I I think this is fascinating. Yeah. Beria congresswoman Zoe Lofgren one hundred thirteen other represents both democrat Republican Senate Bill was introduced by Senator Harris and fourteen other senators. To work on fixing the H one B visa systems represented Lofgren said at the heart of this broken system or the outdated employment and family based immigration systems would suffer under decades long backlogs, I agree with her in combination with the per country limits these backlogs keep nuclear families apart for decades. I agree with her there while preventing US employers from accessing and retraining, excuse me, retaining the employees. They need to stay competitive. Also agreed. I I mean, that's not that's not bad. The key is pay market wage.
