Earlier this week, GoDaddy CEO Blake Irving penned a highly cited article on LinkedIn discussing H-1B visas. The strong lead-in to the article shows how dire Blake believes the situation is right now: “The entire US economy is at stake with Trump’s draft work-visa order.”
I don’t recall seeing GoDaddy take such a leading position on a politicized topic such as this. I don’t know enough about the issue to have an educated opinion right now, but I admire Blake for being brave enough to take such a public stance on the topic.
This morning, Blake made an appearance on CNBC’s Squawk on the Street to discuss his position regarding H-1B visas. The video is embedded below.
