I Guess We're Done Pretending?

Source: Slashdot

A sharp-eyed Slash-dotter caught this in the Department of Labor 5 year plan...
Under Performance Goal 2H, "Address worker shortages through the Foreign Labor Certification Program", we find:

"H-1B workers may be hired even when a qualified U.S. worker wants the job, and a U.S. worker can be displaced from the job in favor of the foreign worker."
He continues...
Isn't that special? I could bring in a new hire H1-B at what DOL thinks are the prevailing wages for Engineers, a whole 40K/year in Silicon Valley (Level 1 Engineer, DOL stats!), and I can use them to displace overpriced US college grads. Pretty slick. Of course the displaced workers can be retrained to something more appropriate.

Repeat after me:

"Do you want fries with that?"
And when we are a nation of cell phone salespersons will that be a victory?
