Donald Trump against foreigner worker on government works. Jobs for Americans first.
President Trump: No American worker should ever be replaced
The decision comes following news that the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA)—created in 1933 as part of President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal—planned to outsource 20 percent of its technology jobs to companies based in foreign countries. That action alone would’ve put more than 200 American jobs at risk.
Thanks to today’s order, other American workers will be protected going forward, too. “We’re not just solving your problem,” Vice President Mike Pence told workers gathered at the White House today. “What the President’s committing to today is to end the abuse of our worker visa program, once and for all.”
