Here's What Trump's 'Buy American, Hire American' Order Means

U.S. President Donald Trump plans to sign an executive order in Wisconsin Tuesday that will order a review of the H-1B highly-skilled worker immigration visa program, a move that the White House says will encourage tech companies to hire American workers instead of cheaper foreign labor.

USA president Donald Trump has signed a new "Buy American, Hire American" executive order, much to the delight of the American Shrimp Processors Association (ASPA).

Donald Trump promised to take a "sledgehammer" to what he considered job-killing regulations as he signed an executive order to crack down on fraud and abuse in foreign worker programmes.

"We're going to switch away from a random lottery system in which it's weighted toward the lowest-wage workers towards a system that prioritizes higher-skilled, higher-paid workers, which would make it much more hard to use it to replace American workers", a senior administration official said Monday.

"This historic action declares that the policy of our government is to progressively promote and use American-made goods and to ensure that American labor is hired to do the job", added Trump. As per Trump's speech to media on Tuesday, the president yet again made an attempt to stress "Buy American - Hire American" policy. "But [the order] calls for stepped-up enforcement and that could mean things like doing more random visits of employers, or audits of employers who have a high percentage of H-1B visa holders".

Throughout his election campaign, Trump pushed the "Buy American, hire American" maxim and prefers to move towards a merit-based visa system, which only encourages the most-talented workers from overseas to come.

Foreign work visas, which are also known as H-1B visas, are known to be very important to hiring practices of tech companies in the US such as Google, Microsoft and Apple.

As for Trump's promises on enforcing existing Buy American provisions, well, we'll see. Big technology companies have long supported efforts to change the H- 1B process - by increasing application fees or giving priority to applicants with advanced degrees.

This could hamper growth prospects for developing economies further, the International Monetary Fund warned. In January, IMF analysts had forecast that Polish GDP would grow 3.3% both in 2017 and 2018.

The H-1B visa program paves the way for the majority of highly-skilled workers from other countries to work in the U.S. The visas are doled out through a lottery system, and there are usually about three times as many applicants as there are visas.
