Billionaires Petition for Cheaper Workers, DACA Amnesty

Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us lobbying group is rallying billionaires and millionaires to protest the federal government’s rising enforcement of the workplace laws which help ordinary Americans earn good wages.

The CEOs digital strike against laws barring the employment of cheap illegal-migrants is being marketed as a campaign “about new developments in immigration policy that threaten the future of young undocumented immigrants brought to America as children,” according to the August 31 statement from FWD.us.

The “new development” opposed by the CEOs is the growing likelihood that state Attorneys General or President Donald Trump will scrap the “DACA” amnesty created by former President Barack Obama. The 2012 amnesty now provides work permits to roughly 800,000 illegal immigrants who mostly compete for jobs against blue-collar Americans.

More importantly, if the DACA amnesty is scrapped, the CEOs’ demands for more immigrant white-collar workers is more likely to be sidelined by Democrats during the expected 2018 negotiations over Trump’s wage-boosting merit immigration reform, dubbed the RAISE Act.

The growing list of FWD.us signers includes several of the world’s wealthiest people, such as Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, who owns both Amazon and the Washington Post, investor Warren Buffet, and the widow of Apple founder Steve Jobs. The collective wealth of those four signers is roughly $250 billion.

The employers’ pro-DACA pitch emphasizes the illegals’ value to them as both taxpayer-aided consumers and as cheap workers, and it also reminds legislators that illegals generate some taxes for use in government programs:

Our economy would lose $460.3 billion from the national GDP and $24.6 billion in Social Security and Medicare tax contributions. Dreamers are vital to the future of our companies and our economy. With them, we grow and create jobs. They are part of why we will continue to have a global competitive advantage.

Dreamers are vital to the future of our companies and our economy. With them, we grow and create jobs. They are part of why we will continue to have a global competitive advantage.

The petition does not mention the 4 million young Americans who turn 18 each year and begin searching for good jobs.




But Zuckerberg is so dreamy.. like Obama. I hope he runs for President.
