I tend to agree, but.

Apple employs about 110,000 people. (my wife is one of them) They are building a new super campus in Cupertino CA that will employ many times more than jobs to India, this just here in CA. Building of this campus has put tens of thousands of Americans to work over a period of 4 years. Apple also maintains campuses in many locations throughout the US.

India produces more engineering students than the the US. There are some incredibly bright engineers coming out of India. Many tech companies are going to India. India is a friend to the US. Apple is a global company that has it's headquarters here in the US but works with many nations for engineering, manufacturing and distribution. If I were to lament any non US issue with Apple it would be that much of the production is done in China. But then again that's the case for pretty much every tech company.

I think if we compared companies similar to Apple we would find that they employ more Americans than their competition. And probably by a bunch.

Maybe because American schools do a crappy job of educating STEM types.

It's pretty embarrassing how low we rank in education to most developed countries. As American we claim to be the greatest, but really we need a serious reform.

This clip from the show The newsroom pretty much echoes my feelings.

Start at 3:45

Why are you upset - did they turn you down for a job?

It's almost impossible to find good old Americans to fill tech jobs - I have a dozen to fill and have virtually no qualified native born Americans applying.

Donald Trump will shut that office down, build a wall around and make them pay for it, and it will be tremendous. Tremendous and beautiful.
