Globalists love refugees!
Every time I see news about Tesla’s new cars, I am reminded of the R & P Abstract for FY16 for Reno, Nevada where refugee contractor, USCRI, cited Elon Musk’s nearby soon-to-be-built battery factory as a source of employment for refugees to be placed in their new resettlement site—Reno.
I told you about that abstract here. This is the segment where the refugee resettlement contractor (one of nine***) assures the US State Department that there are work opportunities for refugees including at the new “Gigafactory” Musk was building on the desert nearby.
The Reno-Sparks economy is well known for its hospitality and leisure sector, with seven large casino-hotels employing 9,500-13,000 people. It is also home to the University of Nevada, the single largest employer in the county (after the school district), employing over 4,500 Full Time Equivalents (FTEs). The Truckee Meadows Community College also employs 1,250 educators and staff. Two major hospitals (Renown and St Mary’s) and other large healthcare providers in the areas employ over 3,500 healthcare professionals, technicians, and staff. The location – four hours by highway to San Francisco, and seven hours to Salt Lake City – is also logistics hub, hosting many warehousing and fulfillment establishments including UPS (1,000 employees), and Amazon.com (650 employees). Tesla is slated to open its “Gigafactory” outside of Sparks in 2017. By 2020, the Gigafactory will be at full capacity, employing 6,500 FTEs and producing more lithium ion batteries annually (for electric cars, for example) than were produced worldwide in 2013.
Here is a very cool website showing the construction of the monster Gigafactory showing its speedy construction from June 2016 to July 2017. It reminds us of the speed with which the Chobani Yogurt plant was built in Idaho that is now a consumer of refugee labor. (Investigative reporter alert! There is a story in Nevada beyond the refugee aspect!)
Frankly, hiring refugees is a great business model. First, salaries can be kept low because refugee families are subsidized by US taxpayers (housing, food stamps, medicaid) and refugees can hardly complain because they are captive workers who can’t easily go home or easily move elsewhere (Somalis are the exception).
Then here is a news account from the Record-Courier about refugees arriving in the Reno area citing FedEx, Costco and Tesla among the companies ‘helping’ refugees.
For new readers…..
***The Federal contractors/middlemen/
The contractors income is largely dependent on taxpayer dollars based on the number of refugees admitted to the US, but they also receive myriad grants to service their “New Americans.”
If you are a good-hearted soul and think refugee resettlement is all about humanitarianism, think again!
These federal contractors act as employment agencies for big companies in need of low-skilled workers and that is why the Republican establishment is loathe to abolish or reform the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program.
The only way for real reform of how the US admits refugees is to remove these contractors/globalist head hunters from the process.
