Editorial Reviews

Review

"Conventional wisdom on high-end immigration lies in ruins after Malkin and Miano have their say...fiery...provides an unblinking look at a fearsome enemy." (Breitbart.com)

Praise for Culture of Corruption:
Culture of Corruption, by my good friend and intrepid reporter Michelle Malkin, reveals all the sordid details the Obama Administration would rather you not know—the sleaze, corruption, and self-dealing of the Chicago Machine that lets no ‘crisis’ go to waste. A powerful and necessary indictment of what ‘hope and change’ really means."
(Mark Levin)

"Dogged, fiercely independent, and with a brilliant eye for the telling detail, Michelle Malkin has now turned her formidable skills to the bright new dawn of the Obama era, and the ever widening gulf between the hopey changey rhetoric and the murkier reality. Her riveting portrait of unsavory cronies parceling out the spoils of government is somewhat at odds with the impression you may have gained from the besotted Tiger Beat correspondents of the mainstream media. I will leave it to the reader to decide which view is more persuasive, but let’s just say that, if more journalists were like Michelle Malkin, American newspapers might still have a future.”
(Mark Steyn, author of the New York Times bestseller America Alone)

I often read these comments on books before making a purchase. I apply a filter for those who seem to have a commercial interest in publishing a comment.
This is my 3rd book review comment on Amazon over the past decade.
So why am I stopping to write this? Because it is disgraceful for well-heeled corporatist to cast aside working Americans in favor of cheap labor foreign workers who in some cases have these same American workers train their foreign labor replacement. This is outrageous!
Michelle and John back up their findings with detailed research and point their fingers directly where the crime is taking place.
The H1-B visa program is off the rails. The current administration refuses to enforce the laws and members from each party share in culpability. I warn readers to make a special effort to remain calm as you read this book because reading it will likely result in your blood boiling.

The little portion that I did get to read, was soul stirring. What I learned actually gave me a bad taste because 94 million are out of work and the government and big business are in bed. Welfare recipients just about doubled and we are giving our jobs to others. Something is wrong and some how I must do something to make our people open their eyes and see. Very good read. So smooth as to how she brings her summary in with a hard left. We have been sold out !

This book is a must read for those who believe that American workers and students do not have the talent or ability to work in the high-tech field; those who believe the fallacy that there exists a shortage of high-tech workers in America; and those who believe, regardless of the facts, that the H-1B guest worker visa is bringing in the “best and the brightest.” Yes, this book is one-sided, but then the facts appear to be as well, and the authors do an excellent job of using statistics and data to support their arguments.

For readers working in the STEM fields or graduating from university with a degree in STEM, the information on depressed wages and job availability will depress you. Foreign guest workers are 1/3 to ½ of all new IT hires; 74% of those with a STEM degree are not employed in STEM occupations; average wages in IT industry have been severely depressed; computer science wages are expected to decrease 9% this next year . . . It just goes on and on.

Politicians and the corporate cheap labor lobby have thrown the American worker under the bus. SOLD OUT explains how it started and why it continues at an increasing rate. The book will make you want to sell your stock and cut-off any business you may have with companies like Infosys, Southern California Edison, Google, Facebook, Intel, Microsoft, Walt Disney, Pfizer, and Qualcomm. It also will make you want to vote some key politicians out of office.

November 2015 marks the 25th anniversary of the H-1B visa. The visa was designed to target worker shortages in specific high-tech fields, but the authors point out that it has morphed, with help from those who benefit at the expense of the American worker, into a gift to special interests.

I am a big fan of Michelle Malkin and I was looking forward to her next book. It is finally out. Almost half the people I work with around here in Silicon Valley are foreign nationals. They have no fear about their status and don't bother to even conceal their origin as they know the INS will never come after them. Most of them are nice people, but they take good paying jobs from Americans.

Even so, I was not prepared, as detailed in this book, for the shocking, systematic way corporations and billionaires are robbing Americans of their standard of living. And it isn't just jobs. The rents in Silicon Valley are unbelievable. Adding hunderds of thousands of foreigners needing housing keeps the rent at about $1,000 a month higher than it would be if they were not here, in my estimation.

What happened to government of the people, by the people, and for the people? This book is a tour de force that exposes the seamy underbelly of the whole H-1b scam. And it is a scam. The massive propaganda campaign spouts two primary lies - (1) that there is a shortage of US tech workers and (2) Indians are technically capable of filling IT jobs. It's hard to say which lie is more egregious. Then there are the phony resumes that inflate an H-1b's education and experience. I guess an American who plays by the rules doesn't have much of a chance against that...which was the whole idea behind H-1b. What a disgraceful side of America H-1b is. Congratulations to the authors for producing this outstanding book.

This book shows how the politicians and cheap labor tech people are trying to destroy the tech industry and the careers of decent hardworking Americans.

This is especially bad as the tech industry is an area where average people can go to school and with some effort and discipline hopefully get a well paying long term job. The politicians talk about well paying long term jobs and they actively attack and attempt to destroy an industry and the careers of their citizens. This is terrible. And, that they are bought off makes it worse, crapweasels is an excellent and accurate word.

The book shows, in detail, the people and the schemes, fraud, misrepresentation, pay scales, charging fees, etc. involved. They are again destroying the careers of Americans. They are also exploiting the foreign workers. This should all be shut down.

The book also explains how this affects the people that will enter the industry and therefore the future of the industry and the future of American tech workers.

The American companies obviously have no shame, they do not seem to care. The people in the companies have not thought that their job could be next.

Well worth reading and everyone should be very upset at the crapweazels attacking an industry and the career of tech people.
