They do this so they can say they looked and nobody wanted the job so they can hire immigrants.

Eh, little of column A, little of column B.

Because the real entry level jobs are filled with unpaid interns who've bought into the "you can't get a job unless you've had an internship" BS.

They do this so they can say no one meets the requirements we tried. We need h1b! They are a minority owned company, could be Indian bring over their Indian fellows. But that is all speculation.

That's not even entry level pay. I think fast food workers get paid more than that in some states.

That is the only explanation that makes any sense at all. I'm pretty sure the blacklist part would be illegal if they actually did it and is just to scare people out of applying.

Unless the company is owned by a larger conglomerate, I'm pretty sure the only company that will enforce this "blacklist" is their own.

I wouldn't work for them anyway.

To make it more insulting, the immigrant won't have any experience nor the certs. (If they have the certs they got them by cheating)

Immigrants... You mean h1b visa holders.

It is an it isn't, a lot of big companies do it for the visas and where possible justify outsourcing but smaller and medium sized companies do it so they can avoid any kind of training costs and get people desperate enough for an immediate start.

Those certificates and that kind of experience level takes time and money to acquire, the company is not willing to absorb any of the costs or time involved because they just want to hire two stooges to do contract work for other companies. I briefly went out with a girl whose father (migrants from Pakistan) made a very comfortable living doing just that in the Huston area, his one man company had a massive amount of staff turnover but always seemed to find someone desperate or gullible enough to employ.
