Make In India/Buy American Hire American

Indian citizens living in the US and India who supported Modi and his Make In India pitch and who also –

  • depend directly (either works in the US on an H1-b or aspires to work in the US on a H1-b)
  • or depend indirectly (works in a sector which benefits from H1-bs)

are now tasting their own medicine.

However Modi’s Make In India pitch is wholly about sustaining India’s economic growth while the new US president’s Buy American Hire American (at least the Hire American part) tone reflects not only genuine realizations to create more american jobs but also a certain xenophobia of his support base who voted him to power.
