Former Disney Employees Speak Out

For the past 10 years, both worked behind the scenes in the IT field, using high-tech data to ensure all points of sale — from tickets to resort stays — were seamless for visitors.

DHS OPT Expansion An Effort to Evade the Law

“With President Barack Obama’s deferred action programs still on hold because of a federal court order, the administration is continuing to roll out other parts of the president’s executive action on immigration.

    In recent years I have noticed that many of the foreign nationals – both legal and illegal – harbor hostile attitudes toward American citizens.

    By inviting and allowing this invasion, the Big Business elites and their puppets in the Federal Government have made this country an increasingly dangerous place for Americans to live.

    Lately I have begun to fear for my physical safety as well as my economic well-being.

    This situation has caused me to do something I would never thought I would do until recently. I have purchased several firearms and I have begun taking firearms training along with self-defense training.

    It says in the Disney story that they acknowledged that they replaced the two American workers with Indian workers, but Disney also claimed that the company has “expanded and added jobs for U.S. IT workers.” Then why were these two let go, when they were obviously superior employees. Answer, they did all the work to set up the system and now the company replaces them with cheaper foreign workers. We have a government that does not represent the American worker, but the interests of big business. Their senator, Marco Rubio, is in favor of even more H1B visas. Think he will get asked that at the debate tonight? Nah, everyone will be asked the usual pablum questions.

    • Saw the Debate

      The questions were mostly unimportant [and side-stepped answers too] as you guessed. Trump creamed ‘em with “I’m bring back the jobs the foreigners stole from us and sparing Social Security from cuts”. He also highlighted this statement that we should be embarrassed to admit we’re negotiating a $20T debt limit instead of a job base [sounds like good ole Perot talk], a total national disgrace for the Dem/Reps. Simultaneously, 470,000 small companies went bankrupt [Fiorina brought this up]…..whoaaa!

      Carter had no energy or persuasiveness….presidential stature, like Trump IMO.

        OK so from purely statistics and what most capable politicians than Trump ever….what is the the difference from him telling you what you want o hear from he other ones?

      To the moderators’ credit, they did press Rubio on STEM jobs with a noteworthy reference to Senator Jeff Sessions.
