Trump further targets tech-friendly work visa programs in latest immigration restrictions

The Trump administration on Tuesday outlined new rules tightening restrictions placed on guest worker visa programs, including the H-1B program favored by tech industry firms.

The rules tighten eligibility around foreign workers, so employers must meet more stringent criteria around the jobs they’re hiring for and how much they’re paying. That may make it harder for companies to receive H-1B visas as part of the annual lottery that awards 60,000 slots to foreign workers, not including renewals. The new rules follow a June order from President Donald Trump suspending a range of guest worker visa programs through the end of the year, with the White House citing domestic job losses during the COVID-19 pandemic as the motivator.

Amazon One is the company’s latest product to raise privacy concerns

Amazon announced a new palm-recognition system last week that lets people shop in two of its Amazon Go stores by scanning their palm at the entrance. The store automatically tracks what products they pick up and then charges the credit card associated with their hand.

It’s the latest in a long line of product announcements from the company to raise privacy or security concerns while selling its vision of an automated, frictionless future.

Called Amazon One, the palm-scanning system is only in two Go stores in Seattle at the moment. But with the massive online retailer behind it, it has the potential to become a standard form of payment or even identification. Amazon’s plan is to start selling it as a service to other companies, like retail stores, office buildings that use ID badges to get in and out, or stadiums that require tickets for events.

The week before, the

Trump’s stimulus bill bombshell puts new pressure on an ailing economy. Here’s the latest

President Donald Trump’s call for an end to stimulus negotiations on a new stimulus bill presented a new wrinkle in the story of the country’s economic recovery from the deep financial fissures of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. His tweet a few hours later urged Congress to pass several of the stimulus measures that had been part of those very discussions. Neither political analysts nor many of the millions who’ve suffered financial calamity on account of the pandemic seem to know what to make of the president’s messaging.
