Tech calls Trump on Immigration ban because they need cheap foreign labor

Tech calls Trump immigration ban ‘bigotry’ and ‘un-American’ – CNET

This isn’t altruism talking, it’s money. Tech depends on employees from India, Russia, China… They get paid less, work longer and complain less. Great workers! This ban has little impact on them but they worry about what’s next.

“From  AppleGoogle and Facebook to Microsoft, Airbnb and Box, the message was pretty much the same: Limiting immigration hurts employees and innovation.

“Apple would not exist without immigration, let alone thrive and innovate the way we do,” Apple CEO  Tim Cook said in an email to employees, in which he also promised the company would do what it can to help staff affected by the order. He also said the order “is not a policy we support.””
