The Conservative Voice website has run an interesting column by Liz Davis on “The Macaca Effect,” which is the first time I have heard the word used in this context. The column starts off: “What is the ‘macaca effect’? First of all, what is a macaca? A ‘macaca’ is a racial pejorative to refer to someone either from or with ancestry from India or Pakistan. And the ‘macaca effect’ is pejorative used by people in high tech to refer to East Indians driving down the wages of American and British high tech workers. In many fields (computer programming, engineering, medicine, nursing, accounting, etc.) companies are faking labor shortages to acquire an H1B visa and hire East Indians, with the net effect of driving down the wages of American and British employees. Thus, one hears disgruntled employees talking about the ‘macaca effect.’ ”
Well, one would think they should be disgruntled. I never cease to be amazed at what Americans put up with from their government and their bosses, but historically, Americans have usually put up at least some kind of a fight when their money and material lifestyle were threatened. Good-paying jobs are getting increasingly scarce thanks to all the Third Worlders with H1B visas, and the future good-paying tech jobs will be non-existent for the next generation of Americans if current trends continue.
The column goes on: “Paul Craig Roberts, assistant secretary of the U.S. Treasury in the Reagan administration, has written: ‘Offshoring has reduced the availability of good-paying jobs for middle-class Americans. It is not only manufacturing jobs that are being moved abroad, but software-engineering jobs, IT jobs, and a wide range of other professional occupations. Consequently, the ladders of upward mobility are being dismantled. Many of the professional jobs that remain are being filled with foreigners, especially engineers and IT professionals from India, who are brought in on work visas and paid less by U.S. employers, who falsely claim worker shortages.’ …High-tech insider Tom Stern says: ‘Indians are generally nice people. But when your company starts hiring them, you know the end is near. It’s like the early stages of cancer. Within one year, all of our wages were driven down by 45%. Big business is bringing over Indians for the sole purpose of pushing down American salaries.’ Many complain that this may be the end of Western economies, as they are slowly transformed into Third World economies. Journalist Brian Watson comments: ‘It is no coincidence that Jean Raspail, author of the conservative classic Camp of the Saints, selected East Indians to lead the invasion of the West. Indians are best equipped to infiltrate and bring down Western countries – and they can do it with an obsequious smile.’”
Americans should always remember this simple truism: Mexicans are being brought into this country to replace blacks. Asians and Indians are being brought in to replace whites because they can at least approximate the skill levels of white Americans although only on an imitative basis.
There is a cult-like religion among executives and CEOs of tech companies, who believe that Third Worlders are just as good as White American tech workers. Never mind the horrible bureaucracy back in India, India’s general backwardness and the dubious quality of their schools. It is “blasphemy” in corporate America to point out that Third Worlders are not as good as White Americans or that the products that they produce -like Vista- turn out to be more disappointing Hindu bloat-ware.
The Tea Party needs to add stopping H1B visas and stopping outsourcing to their agenda. Otherwise every American high tech company will suffer a huge drop in competency and our ability to beat the world at high-tech innovation will be destroyed.
