Donald Trump fulfilled another campaign promise Tuesday by bringing back all the jobs from Mexico and China. So, fine, he didn’t actually bring a single job back, but he signed an executive order that’s intended to give the appearance that some jobs may, someday, come back, and that is exactly the same thing, now isn’t it? At the Wisconsin headquarters of toolmaker Snap-On, Trump proudly remembered to sign the order before leaving this time, and said the order

declares that the policy of our government is to aggressively promote and use American-made goods and to ensure that American labor is hired to do the job.

We’re going to do everything in our power to make sure more products are stamped with those wonderful words “Made in the USA” […] For too long we’ve watched as our factories have been closed and our jobs have been sent to faraway lands.

Trump made no announcement as to whether he would shift manufacturing of Trump-branded crap to American factories; he may just be waiting to let other companies have first swing at bringing the jobs back.

The executive order doesn’t really change anything in American trade policy; rather it calls for stricter enforcement of existing rules:

The executive order directs federal agencies to crack down on fraud and abuse in the H-1B visa program, which is heavily used by technology companies. And it directs the federal government to fully enforce federal guidelines prioritizing the use of American firms and goods in federal projects.

Needless to say, the EO doesn’t say word one about the H-2B program that lets Trump hire foreign workers for his stupid resort, because what, you expect him to sign something that would cost him money? Also, no crackdown on the H-2A visa program, which Eric Trump uses to bring in grape pickers for the Trump Winery

But maybe the order will bring some jobs back. The important thing is that it sounds like he’s bringing jobs back, which damn well ought to be good enough. As the San Diego Union-Tribune points out, the EO is long on rhetoric about Buying and Hiring American, but seriously short on tangible steps that will do that. It calls for a “review” of NAFTA, but doesn’t make any changes to the trade agreement. It targets “abuse” in the H-1B visa program without making any substantive changes in how the program will be administered. And it directs the secretary of Commerce to ensure that infrastructure projects use American materials and workers without giving much direction than that. Vox notes that one of the most likely results of the order will be to make transportation and infrastructure projects more expensive. Maybe after trump tackles repealing Obamacare and passing a tax cut for the rich, he’ll get around to funding some infrastructure projects.

So hooray! Trump has signed another executive order that does almost nothing, but will be very popular with people who don’t pay too much attention. The winning just doesn’t stop, does it?

    Trump Florida hotels – bring in foreign workers on the visa program.

    Trump Winery in Virginia – which he may or may not have an ownership interest in (the story changes) brings in foreign workers.

    There’s a pattern here.

    “President Trump has just repeatedly failed to deliver on the promises he’s made to American workers during the campaign,” said Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) in a conference call with reporters Tuesday. “He hasn’t stood up to China, who has robbed millions of Americans of jobs over the last several decades, has been a benefactor of loopholes in our buy America laws.”

    “He hasn’t even tried to move legislation that would end tax breaks for companies who ship jobs overseas, something we Democrats have been advocating for years,” he added.

  • Resistance Fighter Callyson

    It’s important to point out that Trump has been critical of the H1-B program and not H-2B, which applies to seasonal workers, and for good reason. Last year, Trump was approved to hire 64 foreign workers at Mar-a-Lago, reports the Palm Beach Post. Most of these jobs include everything it takes to run a resort: cooks, maids, waiters, etc.

    Trump Winery, owned by the president’s son Eric, also applied for foreign workers through the H-2A visa program to hire grape pickers.

    In both situations, Trump’s properties claimed it was too difficult to fill these positions.

    However, as the Post pointed out, despite Mar-a-Lago applying for thousands of work visas, it has only asked for help finding a local employee once in the past decade, and it was for a single banquet server.

    Why am I not surprised?

    The result will be to make infrastructure projects much more expensive, because that work relies heavily on steel beams and rods, says Dan Ikenson, a trade economist at the Cato Institute, a conservative think tank in Washington, DC.

    “If we limit the sources of steel to domestic producers, they can charge higher prices,” says Ikenson. “Taxpayers will be getting the least bang for their buck.”

    While Trump’s order will certainly benefit the American steel industry, it ends up harming what are known as “downstream” industries, says Ikenson, such as the construction companies that buy a lot of steel to build infrastructure. If they can’t get cheaper steel from abroad, their costs go up.

    Arent the H-1B visas used by the medical/science/tech communities. The US needs those workers cause there arent enough educated Americans to fill those roles.

    Drumpf furthering the brain drain

    • Latverian Diplomat

      There’s plenty of legitimate criticisms of the H-1B program. at least as used by tech companies.

      The problem is, that until they qualify for a green card, which takes years, H1-B visa holders are tied to their sponsoring employer, and have to take what they get.

      This is very helpful to management that wants to keep salaries down and indulge in age discrimination.

      That said, I doubt Trump will accomplish anything beneficial on this issue either. He’ll just dick around and polemicize with it.

      • The Flaming Carrot

        Also, the program is rife with fraud. Big consulting firms like Tata get most of the slots, and they shake down their consultants for kickbacks and even treat them as fungible assets, substituting one consultant for another under an assumed name.

    • chazmanr

      H-1B visa are ABUSED by the medical/science/tech/academic communities. They are an excuse to hire foreign workers at lower pay with no benefits.

        This, this and all of this. Happened to my son-in-law. He had to train his H-1B replacement so he could get severance pay with his kick to the curb. And this from an entertainment conglomerate we all know and love loathe.

    • Jamoche

      I’ve had co-workers on H1Bs where the company really was using it the way it’s intended – top experts with unique skills. Getting them in was a hassle and held up our projects, and they definitely were not paid less than the rest of us – they left high paying jobs to get here. That was 25 years ago. If the people screaming for “reforms” wanted to make sure it worked like that I could support it, but somehow I doubt it.

      • The Flaming Carrot

        I worked for a company that hired a couple of people with degrees in Aerospace Engineering when they couldn’t find any Americans with such degrees. But then they starting using the H1-B to “permanently hire” people after they finished their summer internship on J visas. They had pretty unremarkable credentials and they probably did replace potential American candidates. However, sometimes managers will insist on hiring someone because they develop a rapport and they don’t realize what an unbridled hassle the H1B process is.

    The H-2A and H-2B visa programs, more than any other, give rise to labor trafficking and abuse of visa recipients.

    …but yeah, let’s focus on “reforming” the H-1B instead, a visa program that doesn’t actually give rise to abuse. And by “reform” I of course mean cripple it as thoroughly as possible to ensure hardly anyone bothers to use it. Great plan!

    • Latverian Diplomat

      See my critcism of the H1-B program below. That said, Trump is not the guy that’s gonna fix it.

      • beavertank

        H-1B workers can get a bit screwed by their employers, but the abuse that happens to H-2A/B workers legitimately qualifies as slavery and not infrequently turns into sex trafficking.

        So there’s a few orders of magnitude difference between the two problems.

        • Latverian Diplomat

          I agree, but that doesn’t mean we can’t address the H1-B issues too. And as I said, Trump won’t fix any of the problems with anything.

          • Jukesgrrl

            He’ll piss off a lot of Republicans if he messes with H1-B. More than reforming the kind he uses. But he’s always about himself, isn’t he?

          • beavertank

            The largest issue with H-1Bs is their use by outsourcing contracting firms. The issues you list, with employees being stuck with their sponsoring employers and remaining underpaid, are not significant issues.

            Anyone who is already in the H-1B cap can transfer employers. It costs their new employer a filing fee, but can be done at any time and they don’t have to go through the visa lottery again. It’s not as easy as a citizen saying “fine, I quit” then finding another job wherever they can whenever they can, but they’re not stuck.

            There is room for improvement in that area, it could be made impossible for the previous employer to screw them out of the transfer process for example, but that’s not a screaming-major-fix-it-fix-it-fix-it issue.

            As for the use of H-1Bs to prefer entry-level workers… you don’t need an H-1B for that. If a company is dumb enough to churn through employees to keep costs lower by always having entry level employees they can, and will, do it with or without an H-1B. The added level of expense, difficulty, and uncertainty of an H-1B makes that a less attractive prospect usually.

          • Latverian Diplomat

            This is not at all the experience I’ve seen co-workers under H1-Bs have, but I guess you know better, so fine.

          • beavertank

            I’m an immigration attorney who has represented both employers and employees on H-1B issues. My breadth of experience and depth of knowledge is probably a bit greater than the anecdotes you’ve had from co-workers.

            Yes, it’s a pain in the ass for an H-1B employee to find a new employers. There’s no way to fix that within the current framework of the way nonimmigrant visas work.

          • Latverian Diplomat

            Why treat them as “nonimmigrants” in the first place? If their skills are in such demand, give them green cards and look for work.

            The problem is, most H-1B visas are for people with skills that are not in such short supply , a the program was originally intended to address. The bureaucratic hassles that tie them to a specific employer are the point, they create a class of employees that work cheaper and are more loyal (not by choice) than the marketplace, and it’s the major reason so many employers like the H1-B program, not a just minor irritation we can all live with.

            It’s more broken than they you are letting on, IMHO.

          • beavertank

            Precisely because the H-1B is a middle ground balance between short-term visitors and permanent residents, and the current requirements that underlie a visa application reflect that.

            Their skills are “in demand” because someone wants to hire them. That’s the only thing the H-1B cares about, and the only thing it should. Because the H-1B is a temporary visa and not permanent residence.

            For employer sponsored green cards a lot more than just that has to be established, including the unavailability of a citizen or permanent resident who can do the job just as well. Would you like to make it H-1B easy for an employer to sponsor someone for permanent residence? I personally don’t think it would be the end of the world, but you’d be fighting everyone from white nationalists to labor unions on that one.

            “they create a class of employees that work cheaper and are more loyal (not by choice) than the marketplace” – that statement is absolute bullshit. Xenophobic bullshit to boot.

            H-1B employees must, by law, be paid at least as much as a comparable citizen or permanent resident would for the same position. Do more experienced people sometimes get shoved into entry level jobs and end up being paid less than their experience would qualify them for? Sure. But that situation isn’t unique to H-1Bs, that situation is general across this entire generation.

            The workers are powerless and get screwed. Citizen or not.

            You’re identifying problems with the labor market in general and then ascribing them to H-1Bs.

            I’ll ignore the cheap shot.

            No matter what the law “says” employers game the system, and this is simply not what happens. How tech companies use H-1Bs does not fit your fantasyland description at all. If you can’t admit that, and can’t resist lapsing into ad hominems, we’re done.

            The H-2A is agricultural labor, the H-2B is catch-all peakload need or worker shortage in non-agricultural sectors.

      Was actually headed to Korea, but got caught in a temporal distortion and wound up west of Hawaii in December of 1941. Was about to wipe out the Japanese fleet on its way to Pearl Harbor when the same temporal storm returned it to the present. Captain Kirk Douglas swears it was true.

    From the USCIS web site:
    Who May Qualify for H-2B Classification?
    To qualify for H-2B nonimmigrant classification, the petitioner must establish that:
    There are not enough U.S. workers who are able, willing, qualified, and available to do the temporary work.
    Employing H-2B workers will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of similarly employed U.S. workers.
    Its need for the prospective worker’s services or labor is temporary, regardless of whether the underlying job can be described as temporary.

    I get it. Trump’s workers qualify because:
    1. There are not enough American women with big boobs AND an Eastern European accent.
    2. Employing H-2B workers will not affect the wages and working conditions of American women with big boobs AND an Eastern European accent.
    3. Trump’s need for prostitutes is temporary.

        Jimmy Carter’s certainly been the best in the “what to do after you’re President” department, whatever people seem to think of his time in office.
        ( Although it’s still pretty early to be doing any comparisons with Obama just yet… )

          Shrub fingerpaints and eats paste.

          • Wee Mousie

            He eats the paint, too. You don’t think he makes those messes using brushes, do you?

      • Wee Mousie

        There was a time when they all did. Even the ones you didn’t like.

    • Old Man Yells at Cloud

      I liked Carter in that he was realistic about the world rather than Ronnie’s “No problem is too complex to not have a simple answer”. Too many people want the simple answer and are willing to ignore reality and screw themselves and me in the process. Trickle Down and MAGA are all the same pile of BS.

      Carter shared a common problem of many recent presidents (LBJ excepted) in that they didn’t have enough time in Congress to know how to get things done and had to really on staffers who really weren’t up to the job. I suppose its a good thing when you think about how much more damage would have been done if Nixon, Reagan, Bushes or Lil’Donnie were as effective at getting things done as LBJ was.

    And it directs the federal government to fully enforce federal guidelines prioritizing the use of American firms and goods in federal projects.

    I work with federal contracts all the time and they already enforce the fuck out of Buy American.

    • Bobathonic

      Yep, GS-minion acquisition perfessional here, and that Buy American thing, they treat it like it’s law or something.

    • Shanzgood

      I’ve worked on federally funded construction projects that had Buy American clauses in the contracts and they were SO easy to weasel out of. Even on ones associated with the military.

      • shivaskeeper

        Pretty much all you had to do to weasel out was say an American supplier couldn’t meet the order required.

        • Shanzgood

          Yup. Or it was too expensive.

          • shivaskeeper

            That was never supposed to be a legit excuse on it’s own. I know it was used, but it wasn;t supposed to be.

      • Ωbjectifier

        Probably depends on the agency you deal with. FAA is pretty strict. Not so much on DBE though.

  • Shakespeare was talking about something completely different, but this somehow seems appropriate:

    …a poor player
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
    And then is heard no more. It is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing.

    Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5

    • one can only hope he ends with his head on a pike.

      with votes of course.

      • Wee Mousie

        By now, I feel certain that someone proficient with photo shop has already created an image of Hair Furor with his head on a pike. And probably another on a loudmouth bass, a pickerel and a carp.

          And let us not forget the one with the slime hag….

          Will the bass sing Take Me to the River?

    • Old Man Yells at Cloud

      Seems pretty appropriate to me, but then I didn’t pay attention in High School when we were reading Shakespeare. Sorry Mrs B, where ever you are.

      • TheBoatDude

        Most folks didn’t, except that one girl.
        Hell, I had to ignore Beowulf, myself. Stupid GATE classes…

    • mardam422

      You’re absolutely SURE he was talking about something completely different. ‘Cause, you know, it seems like a pretty good match is all I’m saying.

  • shivaskeeper

    This does even less than I thought it was going to do. And the bar for what I though it was going to do was not very high.

    • TheBoatDude

      It’s even poor quality paper, so asswipe is out of the question.

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    These things have so many work arounds that [INSERT CLEVER METAPHOR HERE I’M TOO TIRED]. It’s the minority- or woman-owned business scam. (Shell company owned by whoever you need to get the contract. Subcontractors get all the money). The locally-produced scam (Produce it wherever, package it in town. Presto chango “locally made”). It’s such bullshit.

    • TheBoatDude

      “Assembled in America”.

      • louça louca

        “Sold in America”

  • CATMAN

    I’m sure Trump, with his magnificent hypocrisy, will move the manufacture of his branded stuff out of China…and source it from Bangladesh, Vietnam, Honduras… so he can say “I no longer get it from China”

  • Incoming “/FFS” Ham

    Another day, another shallow half-hearted attempt to look like he’s doing something.

    For the life of me, I can’t imagine why anyone would want clothing from Lil’Donnie or Isvespa when you see how poorly his clothes fit him and how ugly her clothes look. If they can’t dress themselves properly what on Earth would make me think they could dress me?

    • Wee Mousie

      But Donald J Trump Collections give you the choice of dressing like two entirely different billionaires, first (arguably) J. Donald Trump or alternatively, Bill Gates.

      Actually, I’ve got photos of some of my buddies’ weddings wearing economical rental tuxedos, and despite their obvious physical imperfections they still manage to look better than both Trump and Gates combined.

      • TheBoatDude

        The difference is, I think Gates owns his frumpiness. Yeah, he’s a Billionaire, but basically, he’s a computer geek (the classic kind, not the new tech bro kind) that struck it rich…

    • TheBoatDude

      Because the Trump name is Classy and Extravagant and Yuuge!

    • davidhollenshead

      Of course it was made in China, our Führer Trump also prefers Chinese steel.

    • phoenix00

      Are you looking to burn it?

      • Bemused Australian

        Naw, I’ll probably put it on my plastic Obama garden gnome. The hat is quite small and won’t fit on my head. Also, the stitching is both crooked and of low quality.

        • phoenix00

          ……. why you ruin such a dignified and cool piece of art? Unless for irony’s sake, in which case carry on!

          Also: totally not surprised that cap is a craptastic piece of garbage.

        • TheBoatDude

          “Crooked and of low quality” can apply to a lot of things, these days…

  • motmelere

      The prices that Wisconsin dairy farmers receive for their milk have fallen below a profitable level in many cases. A national glut of the product has resulted in milk being dumped on fields and processors refusing to take more of it.

      Now, the Wisconsin farms losing their milk sales to Canada are having a tough time finding another market.

      Too much supply? Not enough demand? BLAME CANADA!

    “Trump has signed another executive order that does almost nothing”

    Dear Alex Jones: THIS is performance art. Try to keep up.

  • Rickyphoo

    Our so-called president and the GOP as a whole, don’t even know the meaning of the word hypocrisy.

  • mardam422

    Oh, you said SNAP-on, not…

  • arensb

    But the scotch tape on that Trump tie is proudly made in the USA.

  • Maybe

    I trust that same order promised to aggressively promote apple pie.

    Can’t have too much all-American apple pie.

  • javadavis

    Has anyone mentioned the Trump vineyards, yet? The ones that cannot possibly find American workers and have to get clearances to bring in furriners? Was it HB-1s or some other kind of visas? I don’t remember.
