  •  White collar workers become blue collar workers (7+ / 0-)

    When white collar workers become unemployed, they then must compete with blue collar workers, if they can. An unemployed engineer who takes a job as a part time cashier, is counted as an employed blue collar worker, not an unemployed white collar worker.  The statistics don't account for this.  I asure you the unemployment of white collar professionals is a HUGE factor in the economic downturn.

    Obama can do something immediately, but he has already made a mistake by selecting someone who is intent on INCREASING the glut of H1-B workers. My guess is that NASSCOM has already contaminated his choice.

    see  THIS.

    If President-elect Barack Obama appoints Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano to head the Department of Homeland Security, the move would have significant implications on the incoming administration's policy on H-1B visas, according to a report.
