  •  So then would you accept the law as follows.. (0+ / 0-)

    your words:

    "US worker needs to be more than just willing, they are also need to be at least just as qualified for the position"

    In this exact situation would you support any law that would restrict the employer from chosing the handcuffed employee over the U.S. worker when they are identically and exactly equally qualified?

    How would this exact situation described "potentially require employers to hire those less qualified"?  We have determined that they are identically qualified in every way.

    •  the problem is (0+ / 0-)

      that it is difficult to ascertain if the candidates are exactly qualified. And there is no way for anyone to truly enforce that law. All someone would have to do is say that based on their evaluation the person hired was more qualified.

      Who has determined that the 2 applicants are identically qualified?

      Anyways, my wife (who is an H1B as I've previously stated) works at a State University that by their own guidelines gives preference to Americans in the hiring process. They still hire a ton of H1Bs because there are not enough decently qualified Americans applying. All the H1Bs earn exactly the same as Americans and are treated well. What's the problem with that?

      Now that is a State institution, but I would not make that determination for a private business. I would not want my decisions of who to hire to be second guessed and subject to frivolous lawsuits. So yes, I would oppose any kind of restrictions.
