From KVAL-TV in Eugene, OR comes this story:
Federal Stimulus money went to hire foreign workers before Americans as KVAL-TV (Eugene, OR) reports.Logging jobs in Oregon that went to foreigners. Loans to cronies in the "green energy" market. Payoffs to unions for campaign support. Does the public know how much of a boondoggle it all was?
Reportedly, four companies in Oregon used nearly $7 million in taxpayer-funded stimulus money for a job that hired 250 foreign workers. The companies were able to exploit a loophole that allowed them to hire workers using the H-2B visa system.
