Public Schools Filling Teaching Jobs with Foreign Labor

The Denver Public Schools system has found the perfect way to cut education costs: Abuse the H-1B visa program to replace American teachers with cheap foreign labor.

And here we thought that the tech companies in Silicon Valley were the only ones gaming the system to replace Americans on with cheaper foreign workers.

You really have to give the Denver Public Schools an ‘A’ for effort on this scam. We didn’t think that liberals would be willing to abuse their own constituents just to try to save a buck.

Boy, were we wrong! This also highlights why it’s so important for the Trump administration to limit this fraudulent, anti-worker program.

The H-1B visa program was created so that when companies in America can’t find enough American workers to fill job slots, they can sponsor temporary workers from foreign countries. The program has been a total fraud from its inception.

Companies quickly realized that they could bring in foreign workers who would be willing to work for less pay than American citizens.

Companies like Disney, Facebook and Microsoft have all been caught forcing American workers to train their cheaper, less-experienced foreign replacements… and then firing off the Americans.

One of the most notorious abuses of the foreign work visa program happened in 2009 at Hamilton Growers in Georgia.

Hamilton supplies fresh produce to Walmart and the Green Giant brand. On the day when the foreign visa holders showed up to replace all of the predominantly-black employees, a foreman grabbed a bullhorn and announced, “All you black American people, f**k you all. Go to the office and pick up your check.” Obama-nomics at work!

It appears that school districts are now using the H-1B visa program in an ingenious fashion. Teachers who stay on the job for a number of years enjoy generous yearly salary and benefit increases, which everyone knows.

But foreign H-1B visa holders are only allowed to stay in the US for a period of six years. The incentive, then, is obviously to bring in as many foreign teachers as they can possibly get, because the talent pool will stay at the rookie end of the pay scale. If only a handful of public school teachers make it to beyond the sixth year, you can dramatically cut costs.

The mathematics of the scam become even more clear if you examine the pay scale in the Denver Public Schools. In 2019, a brand-new teacher with a bachelor’s degree makes a base starting salary of $42,789.67.

By the end of their sixth year on the job, when H-1B visa holders then have to leave the country, their salary will have increased to only $44,063.43. DPS provides an incremental pay raise of only $200 to $300 per year over the first six years.

On the seventh year of a teacher’s employment by the Denver Public Schools, a teacher salary suddenly jumps by $1,800 per year. Salary increases each year after that jump $1,800 to $1,900 every single year.

It’s simple economics. By employing a pool of foreign teachers, DPS is saving a lot of money. So what if American teachers are screwed out of jobs in the meantime?

Is there really some mass shortage of teachers in Denver that everyone was unaware of?

And here’s an even more important question: Are foreign teachers who speak English as a second language better able to educate American kids than American teachers?

55% of Denver’s K-8 schools are performing below expectations on standardized tests (118 schools out of 214 total). 20 K-8 schools are performing so badly that they are on probation to continue receiving accreditation from the state of Colorado.

It would be interesting to learn how many foreign teachers are employed in the public schools that are failing the worst in Denver – but it would probably be a hate crime to publish those results in modern America.

President Trump has been successful so far in preventing Congress from increasing the number of H-1B visa recipients during his administration.

Unfortunately, companies and school districts are still bringing in 100,000 foreign workers per year through the program to continue crushing American jobs.

It has been an uphill battle just to keep the number from growing, thanks to everyone from the New York Times to Republicans in the House and Senate who want to keep providing cheap labor to their donors.

Maybe if more public schoolteachers knew their jobs were being given to foreign workers, opposition to the H-1B program would finally reach a boiling point.

    Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time
    making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask! https://www.xn--3e0br9s9lekpf1sf32am8y.kr/

    If I have read the law correctly, the schools are not only saving on pay rasises, they are saving on Social Security and Medicare as those taxes do not have to be paid on these “temporary” workers. And by the way, don’t blame the Republicans. The democrats seem to be taking all the advantages with this program. If you notice, it is the “progressive” leftists who are using it.

      This H-1-A\B visa program was introduced by Senator Ted Kennedy (D) Mass inn 1989, and Chuck Schumer in the House, and regrettably signed into law by George H.W. Bush. So, it’s a Demorat hatched idea, introduced and passed while the Demoturds had the majority in both houses (1989 \ 90).

      The article says: “… This also highlights why it’s so important for the Trump administration to limit this fraudulent, anti-worker program. …”

      I find it quite interesting and very ironic, that the mostly left-leaning (D) members of the very liberal left-leaning Teachers Union, are whining, that their ideological nemeses, President Trump, needs to come to their rescue! Aren’t they the same folks that have been indoctrinating our children for the last half-dozen + decades with revisionist history, while preaching about diversity, and globalism, and km-bye-ya, BS open borders?

      But now, when it’s THEIR rice bowl at risk, they want our President’s help, to curb this injustice, and stop this “scam”!

      The left, never ceases to amaze! Their hypocrisy knows no bounds!

      Frankly, it gets worse(see OPT visas). Actually on H-1b, as far as I know, they do pay social security and medicare.

      But, OPT ‘ Optional Practical Training’ visas do NOT. That is an immediate 16.5% saving when hiring a foreign worker vs a young American grad. Corporations love OPT visas; all they care about is saving money. there are no quantity limits on OPT visas.

      I know it all too well. We were ordered by corp mgmt to TRAIN our foreign replacements. Our replacements were Tata India employees, holders of H-1b/L-1b visas. Once trained the well-educated American employees (very diverse dept black,white,hispanic,male,female) were given a small severance and a Pink Slip while foreigners on visas lived and worked in Lake Mary, FL. All Tata India employees(our trainees) were young Indian males.

      I had 3 ‘trainees’, each learned a different facet of my job. None of them had near the knowledge or experience as me, ….but they were cheaper. Lucky for me, I left mid-training when I landed another job, not so for most of my former ex-coworkers. There are no quantity limits on L-1b visas either.

    looks to me like all those years of communist education system is finally paying off. goodbye U.S.A. Its going to be a hell of a place for my grandkids. Ruled by liberal communists. so sad. and the hell of it is you can not talk to these people, they truly think they are right.

    1. Herb says

      These “people” don’t think, the socialist left only “feels” it is right. There is no logic behind their feelings.

  5. Paul Moore says

    This is bullshit scam here the fedel gov is going allowed illegal to come here and teach get paid and they don’t have to file for taxes while there here so our school are just fucked all the way around.

  6. william says

    There shouldn’t be any H-1b visas issued as long as there are Americans that can do the job! All working Americans should be registered and if a company or a Union want to issue a H-1b visa they have to hire the American that has that training and is on the registrar first!!!

  7. Carl J Bujan says

    So what’s new? That’s the socialist democrats way, foreigners first Americans last.

  8. Larry Sparks says

    How are these foreign workers (teachers) getting certified to teach with the State and school district?

  9. Tell says

    You are speaking the truth. The dummycrats are bad for America in many ways. This is just another one in a long list that they are doing to show they are anti-american.

  10. Marta says

    The infiltration of the communists into our educational system, which started into the 60’s , it’s really paying off now …
    This is the explanation for having 65% of the young generation between 25-35, or even 40’s saying that they would like to live in a socialist system …
    What did they learn in school?
    No math, no literature, no history, no chemistry … just brainwashing, Indoctrination, basically, everything about the Marxist propaganda agenda, like social justice, income inequality, how to start having sex when you’re 13-14, lots of very important knowledges about homosexuality, you know, all kind of very important and useful information for kids starting elementary school …
    Basically, how to become a very successful community organizer, like Obama, one of the most America hater president we ever had.
    So, if God forbid, in 2020 there will be enough of them to vote for Bernie Sanders or any other of the Democrats/ Marxists candidates, then, America will finally find out exactly how “ great” socialism/ communism really is…
    Just to make sure they will have enough brainwashed idiots to vote for them, the Democrats/ marxists are working hard on importing lots of
    uneducated, unskilled, good for nothing people from all over the world, which will vote for whoever would give them “ free schools, free medical assistance, free housing, and of course we, the American people, will have to pay for all .
    Anyone, any complaints ?
    Not really !

  11. Hi there, always i used to check webpage posts here early in the dawn, as
    i like to gain knowledge of more and more. http://paybackmall.or.kr/

  12. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to tell someone! https://www.jjanglive.com/

    Cheaper foreign workers to make their expenses less and have a bigger profit. Just like other countries that looks for a lot of English teacher for their schools with a less expense on labor.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you have done a superb job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Firefox.
    Superb Blog!
