The executives and leaders of technology giants may be meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump and shaking hands on several policies but the Facebook founder and Chief executive officer is sharing his thoughts without any fear. Recently, Mark Zuckerberg called on the President for his views that demotivate and frighten immigrants.
America is a nation of immigrants: Mark Zuckerberg
Further, the CEO of the social media giant tactfully encouraged some positive comments and policies that the U.S. President offered on the subject. In his long motivating post, which was posted on his page on the social networking giant, Zuckerberg wrote, “Like many of you, I’m concerned about the impact of the recent executive orders signed by President Trump.” His post said that they need to keep their country safe but they should do that by focusing on people who actually pose a threat. The CEO wrote that they should always keep their doors open to refugees and those who need their assistance.
Facebook founder also wrote, “That said, I was glad to hear President Trump say he’s going to ‘work something out’ for Dreamers — immigrants who were brought to this country at a young age by their parents…over the next few weeks I’ll be working with our team at FWD.us to find ways we can help.”
He said he is glad that the President believes their country should continue to benefit from ‘people of great talent coming into the country.’ He concluded, saying that they are a nation of immigrants and they all benefit when the best and brightest from across the world can work, live and contribute there.
Several business tycoons and leaders see co-operating with Donald Trump as an essential way to keep their business in the United States safe. However, in this case, the oppositional perspective of Zuckerberg is also important for the success of the tech giant.
Sheryl Sandberg also posts her disagreement on Trump’s recent signing
Facebook, the U.S.-based social media giant, employs a large number of immigrants in the United States via the high-skilled H-1B visa. The extra restrictions on the overloaded H-1B visa program could prevent the social networking site from hiring the talent it requires to keep building the most popular social networking products of the world.
Trump has railed against the inevitable effects of globalization of manufacturing and moving other jobs to other countries with minimum wage laws and looser worker protection. Partly, according to reports, the election of the President happened because he harnessed the fear of less-educated American whites looking for scapegoat or an easy answer for their troubles related to finance.
The United States will have to come to grips with how to handle the upcoming unemployment crisis fueled by automation and globalization. Even the founder of Facebook does not claim to have a solution for that but he is still honest and brave enough to disclose his actual thoughts on Trump’s policies.
Even Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook, posted her strong disagreement with the President signing an executive order that will pull funding from foreign aid organizations that offer counseling about family planning options, including abortion. The COO wrote that the rights of women are not human rights and there is no more basic right than health care. She added that women around the world deserve their support.
