As we know, the women in tech movement seeks to remove as many men as possible from the tech industry. And part of that is targeting Indian men and Asian men working in tech. Many Asian and Indian men who work in tech are immigrants. Now, there is a new angle in targeting Asian and Indian immigrants working in tech, using the fact that some visas require their wives to not work.
The article blames “an immigration system focused only on meeting corporations’ needs” which is bullshit by itself since any of these wives of immigrants working in the tech industry could change their visa status. However, I anticipate that the next target will be the immigrant men working in tech themselves for forcing their wives into an immigration status where they can’t work. Since the vast majority of immigrant men working in tech are Indian and Asian, this is really an attack on Indian and Asian men working in tech. Indian and Asian men are already accused of importing “misogyny” into the tech industry, and this visa issue will be used to bolster that attack. Even with tactics like these, I don’t anticipate this will stop class action racial discrimination lawsuits from Asian and Indian men when the women in tech movement tries to remove them from the tech industry.
