Laid off Disney worker breaks down before Senate panel

Leo Perrero was a highly trained information technology worker at the Walt Disney Company for many years. Even though he had excellent job performance reviews he was told that his his job was being given to foreign workers brought into the country on H-1B visas. Perrero had to train his replacement. Breitbart has the story.

“During the holiday season of 2014, I was sent a meeting invitation by a prominent Disney executive. With an excellent review in hand along with company announcements of record profits my mind buzzed with thoughts of a promotion or a bonus,” Leo Perrero, the former Disney worker testified before the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest. “I walked into a small conference room with about two dozen highly respected fellow IT workers. The Disney executive made a harsh announcement to us all.”

That harsh announcement, Perrero said, was that Disney was laying him and hundreds of others off. He would be without a job in 90 days.
