Soon-to-be former President Donald J. Trump has filed a lawsuit against Facebook claiming that the social media giant discriminated against American workers because it hired foreigners for high-paying positions.
Now, I honestly believe that President Trump doesn’t like any social media platform because they continue to label his social media rhetoric as false, and it is.
The Trump administration filed the lawsuit Thursday through the Justice Department alleging that Facebook refused to recruit or consider U.S. workers for some 2,600 positions from January 2018 to September 2019, instead of reserving those jobs for H-1B temporary work visa holders that the company-sponsored for permanent residency, often known as a green card.
Federal Law does require companies to demonstrate that there are no qualified U.S. workers for a position before it offers the job to a foreign worker on a temporary visa whom the company can then sponsor for an employment-based green card.
According to the lawsuit, Facebook did not advertise the positions on its career website but required applicants to apply by mail and refused to consider U.S. workers’ roles.
Facebook did not comment on the pending litigation but is cooperating with the Department of Justice and will dispute the allegations in court, a Facebook spokesperson said.
Do you think Trump is doing this for justice or spite because he hates Facebook and Twitter? After all, they are always censoring content?
