President Obama: Veto H1-B program expansion

To be delivered to President Donald Trump

Petition Statement

President Obama: Veto Senate Bill 169 (H1-B Program Expansion) and put American workers back on the job.
There are currently 164 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

While employers' websites say that they can't respond to job applicants because they are getting too many resumes, employers claim that they can't find American workers and need to expand the H1-B program. With federal budget cuts, defense industry workers are being laid off in large numbers. Our returning veterans are getting training but are still jobless. Except in chemical engineering, half the women who graduate with a US engineering degree do not have a career in their fields. Age discrimination is rampant as interviewing teams feel threatened by their deep experience. We do not oppose foreign workers. It is simply a matter of survival for many Americans. Ask President Obama to veto Senate Bill 169 and put Americans back to work.
