Silicon Valley Company Caught Paying Alien Workers $1.21/Hr.

A Silicon Valley tech company was importing workers from India and paying them their regular hourly wage in Indian rupees, which translated to $1.21, according to the Labor Department. The company, Electronics for Imaging, claimed it “unintentionally overlooked laws that require even foreign employees to be paid based on local US standards.”

Even though there is a surplus of American high-tech workers resulting in unemployment and stagnant wages, Silicon Valley billionaires continue to lobby for more foreign workers while laying off American employees.
