Trump plans on signing an executive order that will force agencies to buy goods and services from U.S workers and companies.
This order will fulfill Trumps plan on having economic nationalism as he has previously accused the information technology industry of “importing low-wage workers on H-1B visas to take jobs from young college-trained Americans.” The H-1B visa brings in about 85,000 skilled workers into the U.S.
What do you guys think? Bringing skilled workers into the United States does have the ability to improve the economy. On the other end, immigration can possibly take jobs from non-college educated and college educated Americans, especially if you consider the number of college educated students who happen to work jobs unrelated to their major.
This order would increase the production of American goods in the United States and is expect the raise the employment rate.
