A self-described “socialist” magazine has admitted that President Donald Trump saved the jobs of 200 tech workers for the Tennesee Valley Authority who were being replaced by foreign workers.
When the TVA tried to make the workers being replaced train their foreign replacements, Trump stopped the whole scheme and forced the Authority to rehire all of the displaced American workers.
Jacobin magazine said that Trump saved the Americans’ jobs when Democrats would not even acknowledge the situation.
Trump has ordered the H-1B, H-2B, H-4, L-1, and J-1 visa programs to be suspended during the pandemic to protect more American jobs.
These programs allow well over 2 million foreign workers into the U.S. each year to take American jobs, and in many cases the Americans displaced are forced to train their foreign replacements just as the TVA workers were until Trump stopped them.
