Sound and Fury signifying Nothing

The president came out with an executive order “to Buy American and hire American” It calls for changes to be made in the Department of Labor’s Labor Condition Application system. The Labor Condition Application system ensures that foreign workers are paid equivalent to US workers. But Trump presumably wants only the “brightest and the best” making a high salary.
While that is a good policy, it will be seen if the free market system can handle that. The Computer Consulting business, usually pays their employees over 100K. The problem is that their jobs require a lot of travel. The employee moves from project to project from location to location. While we do have Computer Professionals in the US, they want a lifestyle driven job that will allow them to stay in one place. We simply do not have enough Computer professional in the US. Just like picking fruits, it’s a hard life. But the crackdown might result in more outsourcing thereby reducing our tax base.
So in the end this Executive action sounds great, but may not benefit Americans. And definitely not the kind of Americans who voted for him wanting jobs.
