Displaced Disney Worker Details Humiliation of Training His Foreign Replacement

via Renegade Tribune

Former Florida Disney employee Leo Ferrero, testifying before the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and The National Interest subcommittee, details how, not long after receiving a glowing performance review from his employer, he learned he was losing his job to a foreign worker on an H-1B visa who he would be required to train. While there is a bipartisan effort in Congress to end H-1B visa abuse, there are also efforts to dramatically expand the H-1B program without providing real protections for American workers. For example, the 2013 Senate ‘Gang of Eight’ bill would have more than doubled annual issuances of H-1B visas. The Senate ‘I-Squared’ bill goes even further, more than tripling annual issuances of H-1Bs. Both bills fail to include meaningful worker protections
