The DOJ has filed charges against Facebook for discrimination in hiring. And who did they discriminate against? Blacks? Hispanics? Asians? Mo, Americans. Facebook stands accused of discriminating against Americans because they would have to pay them more than hiring foreigners. I’d hire a Foreigner. That way I could have a little “As Cold as Ice” during lunch break.
“The Department of Justice’s lawsuit alleges that Facebook engaged in intentional and widespread violations of the law, by setting aside positions for temporary visa holders instead of considering interested and qualified U.S. workers.”
The DOJ says this is the culmination of two years worth of investigations. Hell, we knew this two years ago. Like this is supposed to be a surprise? But, let’s see if they actually do anything about it. My guess is absolutely not. Joe Biden is deep in debt to Facebook and Twitter. He owes them big and his DOJ will find someway to let them off the hook. Then they will allow them to continue hiring foreigners.
The lawsuit alleges that Facebook violated Department of Labor regulations. Those regulations demand that you look for Americans that want to work before you go with foreigners. Then if you can’t find any, you are allowed to recruit from other countries. Since only 50% of STEM students can find work in the field they trained for, there is no shortage of able and willing Americans.
“Our message to all employers — including those in the technology sector — is clear,” continued Dreiband, “you cannot illegally prefer to recruit, consider, or hire temporary visa holders over U.S. workers.”
The DOJ is seeking back pay for the U.S. workers what were denied employment as well as civil penalties.
Many critics on the right have accused Facebook and other social media companies of being biased in favor of liberal political causes and have called on the administration to take whatever steps they can to curb the ideological censorship.
President Donald Trump amplified the accusations from his Twitter account before the election.
Facebook released a brief email statement to ABC News about the lawsuit.
“Facebook has been cooperating with the DOJ in its review of this issue and while we dispute the allegations in the complaint, we cannot comment further on pending litigation.”
