In an apparent reference to the current hot-button case against Disney World, Trump told an Iowa rally, "We will fight to protect every last American life. During the campaign, I also spent time with American workers who were laid off and forced to train. Foreign workers were brought in to replace them. We won't let this happen any more." Among his first actions after winning, Trump played a proactive role to keep air conditioning company Carrier from relocating to Mexico.
India has come in for special mention not merely by Trump but by successive presidential candidates over the past decade, with the word "bangalored" becoming an acceptable verb. The 1990 H-1B visa programme allows US employers to import up to 65,000 foreign workers with "highly specialised knowledge". However, US studies have said the top users of the H-1B visa were outsourcing companies, mainly from India.
Trump can reduce the cap on H-1B visas or raise the fees or auction them. He could also order that H-1B workers have to be paid higher wages which would make Americans more competitive.
