The American economy, like any other post-industrial economy, is stimulated by growth in science, technology, the digital arts, and engineering. It is in these industries that a lot of government money has been spent to improve the way cities are designed, to improve consumer satisfaction with all kinds of home appliances, and to re-imagine where the human race can go. It is a belief in these same innovative principles that brought dishwashers to every American home in the 1950s, and what inspired NASA to send a spaceship to the moon.
Innovation has been at the heart of the American consumer market since day one – and innovation knows no boundaries. All it requires is that the smartest people in the world can be brought together to work out the most complex ideas under the most ideal circumstances. Silicon valley in California has carved out a well-earned reputation as the centre of global innovation. American companies like Apple, Google, Tesla, and Microsoft are all based in this region surrounding San Francisco, and each are doing their part to re-imagine the future of the human race.
PERM is an immigration policy that puts the American worker first, but also makes it possible for these innovative companies to hire the best and brightest without having to wait years for them to get a green card. Companies like Apple operate on the start-up mentality that things must happen as efficiently as possible. Not being able to hire someone from a different country just because they don’t have status in the States does not make sense to a technology driven company that wants get new products on the market before the next quarter. All it takes is the compliance with immigration paperwork and some national advertisement to see if any American’s are qualified for the work. As long as the American education system is unable to produce enough specialists, PERM is available to these companies that have no time to wait.
The PERM Difference
Put quite simply, PERM is an immigration policy that makes it possible for America’s most innovative companies to hire the specialists they need to continue improving. A good example of a company that benefits from PERM is Tesla.
Tesla is a company on the cutting edge of energy technology. They have developed fully electric cars, supported solar technology for powering homes, and pioneered the notion that it actually is possible for the American economy to break away from coal, oil, and gas. Without the ability to hire the world’s most talented engineers, it is hard to say where Tesla will be today. It is safe to say that they have benefited greatly from the ability to hire foreign nationals who have come in and instantly contributed to building the personal solar batteries that Tesla are about to release on the market.
