Here's What Trump's 'Buy American, Hire American' Order Means

President Donald Trump is coming to Connecticut

Speaking at the headquarters of Snap-on Tools in Kenosha, Trump singled out the H1-B visa program for "allowing American workers of all backgrounds to be replaced by workers brought in from other countries to fill the same job for sometimes less money".

Trump will announce the order during a trip to Wisconsin along with instructions to federal agencies to examine their purchasing systems to more effectively favour buying American goods.

"We are potentially going to pay an opportunity cost", Williams said, fearing it could signal that the United States may not be a welcoming country for high skilled foreign workers.

The new executive order also directed federal agencies to review current procurement requirements and step up the effort to limit government purchase to USA -made goods.

The President also asked his top officials to suggest reforms to help ensure that H-1B visas were awarded to the most-skilled or highest-paid beneficiaries.

But the White House said the programme is undercutting American workers by bringing in cheaper labour and that some tech companies are using it to hire large numbers of workers and drive down wages.

A majority of them work in the tech sector - some for US firms, others for Indian outsourcing companies such as Tata Consultancy Services and Infosys, who provide services for huge swathes of corporate America.

As of Tuesday, Dao was still in a Chicago hospital recovering from his injuries, his lawyer said. Other videos showed the man pacing around the plane's cabin with blood dripping from his mouth.

"As an American I've seen more done in two months then I have in the prior two administrations, actually promises", Trump Jr. said.

"It's very hard, either they're not qualified, and one of the big things, it's a seasonal job", Mr. Trump said.

"We hope the goal of President Trump's executive order on the H-1B program is 'mend it, don't end it, '" said Robert Atkinson, president of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, a technology industry group. Trump-branded products are also made overseas. 65,000 visas are granted each year, with 20,000 other visas for graduates.

This Executive Order calls to fully enforce the laws governing the entry of foreign workers into the United States economy, to promote rising wages and more employment.

"No one can compete with American workers when they are given a fair and level playing field, which has not happened for decades", President Trump said.

Demand for the current H-1B visa program is so high, a lottery system is now implemented, something of which Trump aims to revamp through a merit system. Ironically enough, the man who has continuously railed against other companies for taking jobs away from US citizens has had many of his own products made overseas.
