Promises made, promises kept.
According to the White House. President Donald Trump has just signed an official executive order requiring companies that receive federal tax dollars to hire American and not replace their employees with foreign labor.
Trump Signs It
Trump’s order will prevent American workers from being displaced by foreigners in their job.
And not only that, but the order will require all Federal agencies to complete an internal audit and assess whether they are in compliance with the requirement that only United States citizens and nationals are appointed to the competitive service.
The White House released a statement regarding the order, saying:
“It would be unfair for Federal employers to replace perfectly qualified Americans with workers from other countries.”
“As we recover from the pandemic, President Trump has taken action to ensure that American workers never have to remain on the sidelines while being replaced by new foreign labor… President Trump initiated reforms to the H-1B program to prioritize high-wage workers and close loopholes to ensure American workers are not displaced by low cost foreign labor.”
