Gates Argues For Unlimited High Tech Work Visas Then Lays Off 18,000 Any Ideas?

On Thursday, a week after former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates argued for amnesty and for an unlimited number of high-tech guest-worker visas, Microsoft announced it would slash 18,000 jobs. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella promised his employees that “we will go through this process in the most thoughtful and transparent way possible.” Analysts told USA Today that the number being let go was “larger than expected.”The “vast majority” of employees will reportedly be notified “within the next six months” and “earn severance and job transition help in many locations.” Microsoft employs 125,000 people.However, numerous nonpartisan scholars and studies have determined that there is a surplus ā€“ not a shortage ā€“ of American high-tech workers. Microsoft lays off 18,000 workers any ideas?
