Not the Suit You Were Expecting


The Department of Justice has filed suit against Facebook. It’s not some sort of antitrust action. It’s not about illegal in-kind campaign donations. It’s about illegal employment practices. Specifically, Facebook is accused of illegally discrimination in hiring against qualified American and of hiring temporary immigrants with H1B visas instead.

Commenting on the suit, Eric S Dreiband, the assistant attorney general for the DoJ’s Civil Rights Division said, “Our message to all employers—including those in the technology sector—is clear: You cannot illegally prefer to recruit, consider, or hire temporary visa holders over US workers.”

It’s rarely an obvious fault that finally trips up the self-important. The Gentle Reader may remember that Al Capone went to jail for tax evasion.

  1. Precisely. Arrogance will finally bring a fall. “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:18
