Letters to the editor

Federal jobless help

Re "A first: State asks U.S. for loan to pay jobless," Dec. 12: To the extent the federal government and U.S. Department of Labor have caused our state's unemployment, California should seek $1.3 billion as compensation rather than a loan.

Federal free-trade agreements enticed U.S. corporations to transfer jobs and technology overseas: The R&D for Intel's Pentium replacement is being done entirely in India; HP, while trimming 2,000 from Roseville's head count, has hired 10,000 tech workers in India; Oracle in Rocklin is forcing 175 Americans to train their Indian replacements.

Since 2000, the Department of Labor has granted a record number of foreign worker visas -- roughly 500,000 - even as the number of jobs has declined. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 20 percent of computer programmers are either unemployed or have been displaced from their profession. Yet the Department of Labor continues to grant foreign tech worker visas, including several hundred this year in the Sacramento region.

These are federal acts beyond California's control. Our governor has pledged to protect California jobs. He should demand that the federal government fund its own incompetence.

Citrus Heights Board Member,
National Assn. for the Employment of Americans

Yeah, i agreed with you because of foreign workers here in USA, USA people are getting jobless. They also don't know that how much is edubirdie job salary is. Because people from another country is getting job more as compared to local people. People should take some action or more will get jobless.

I found your post link when I was reading the Latest News from Philadelphia US website and I agree with you. Many people from another country are getting a job in the US. Thanks for it.
