The advocacy group backed by Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg is launching a new round of ads aimed at keeping the pressure on Congress to pass immigration reform.The billionaires are upset that they haven't managed to drive software engineering wages down to $10 per hour. It isn't like anyone is really hiring Americans anyway. And those people who work at unskilled or semiskilled jobs? The billionaires won't be happy until that bunch is literally at the "will work for food" stage.
The ads from Silicon Valley’s FWD.us — backed by executives from Google, Yahoo, AOL, Microsoft, Instagram and Dropbox — highlight what the groups says is bipartisan support for swift movement on legislation.
FWD.us said the videos are "part of a large national buy, targeting cable and online outlets across the country."
“With this new round of ads, we want to make clear to Washington that delay on critical immigration reforms is unacceptable,” FWD.us President Joe Green said in a statement...
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) has been a vocal critic of Zuckerberg’s attempts to increase the availability of H-1B visas.
“Mark Zuckerberg made a glaring omission from his ad: the tech lobby’s push for a large increase in temporary guest workers to replace American workers – a central pillar of the Senate bill,” a spokesman for Sessions said Monday.
I really wish that the Democrats had an opposition political party.
