Trump has stopped the issuance of work visas in the United States
In a situation of record unemployment, Donald Trump stopped issuing several types of American work visas until the end of the year. Green card issuance restrictions have also been extended.
US President Donald Trump on Monday, June 22, signed a decree to stop until the end of the year the issuance of certain types of work visas.
In particular, we are talking about the type of visas H1-B, which is intended for the limited-time work of highly qualified specialists such as scientists and engineers. In addition, restrictions will apply to the type L-1, which is applied when transferring employees of companies working in other countries to the USA. As well as type H-2B - for seasonal workers who work most often in the field of landscape planning and the hotel business. The majority of J visas issued to participants in cultural and professional exchange programs will also be banned.
The reason for this measure was increased unemployment in the United States due to the coronavirus pandemic, exceeding 13 percent. According to representatives of the White House, these restrictions will save for Americans about half a million jobs.
In addition, Trump until the end of the year extended restrictions on the arrival of the United States through the green card program.

President of America Donald Trump called ways to end the unrest in the United States
It's only four points:
The authorities will work for the economic well-being of minorities, their access to capital for small businesses will be increased.
The American leader promised to address the problem of unequal access to health services.
Trump said he is working on a decree that "will encourage U.S. police departments to meet the latest professional standards in the use of force, including de-escalation tactics. In addition, the White House again calls on Congress to raise the issue of allowing the right to choose a school. "Because access to education is a civil rights issue of our time," Trump said.
Police should only use a 'suitable' level of violence...
Trump reported on the work on the decree, which "will encourage police departments in the U.S. to meet the most modern professional standards in the use of force, including tactics of de-escalation of conflicts. In addition, the White House again calls on Congress to raise the issue of allowing the right to choose a school. "Because access to education is a civil rights issue of our time," Trump said.
The President also stressed that he would not deprive the police of funding, but, on the contrary, guaranteed that they would be well trained and equipped.
The United States saw a wave of protests and riots after the death of African-American police officer George Floyd in Minneapolis. Despite the fact that the four police officers involved in the detention had been dismissed, people had taken to the streets accusing the authorities of racism.

At the ceremony, in order to avoid unrest, they decided to gather only relatives and specially invited - several hundred people.

'Woke' Social Justice-Convicted Companies Change Marketing Strategies to Respect Black Consumers
It was just announced by PepsiCo, owner of Quaker Oats, that Aunt Jemima will be retired. Her namesake, the country's favorite brand of syrup and pancake mix, will finally reflect our modern sensibilities. The acknowledgement was made in clear terms by Kristin Kroepfl, chief marketing officer, that the friendly smiling mammy, around since the 1890s (and awkwardly updated in 1989 for the 1990s) is "based on a racial stereotype". The new name of the soon-to-be re-issued product has not been revealed.
Incidentally, there has been some controversy over Uncle Ben's brand of parboiled rice for many years. However no plans are known regarding a change to his image. Mars Inc. states that he's based on an actual person, a rice grower by the name of Gordon L. Harwell, a black entrepreneur who supplied a high-quality grade to the Armed Forces during World War II. In 2007 the character was promoted to "The Chairman of the Board" in an ad campaign. That would seemingly be the justification for keeping Uncle Ben as he is.
Nike continues to support Colin Kaepernick, the controversial African- American NFL player who was shunned by the league for his displays of kneeling during The National Anthem. An ad he did for said sportswear company in 2018 was revived after the George Floyd incident and gained renewed popularity. An updated survey done on consumer response to the commercial showed that almost half of those originally opposed to its message or messenger now see it positively - even the most conservative viewers.
After Mr Kaepernick's four-year absence from the game more than half of its fans are petitioning for a team to take him on. Despite the objections of a core group of traditionalists who still find his actions to be anti-American, the NFL has decided to make concessions. Its commissioner Roger Goodell made a public statement to that effect. It appeared that he was reluctant or altogether insincere in doing so to many. The President of the United States tweeted his opposition to the move, with questioning its adherence to our patriotism.
But in the meantime Nike carries on with its objectives. Its general division pledged 40 million dollars to remedying racial inequality and other social justice-based issues and the sub-brand owned by Michael Jordan will contribute 100 million. The new CEO John Donahue announced that Juneteenth, a holiday celebrating the end of slavery in America, will be a paid day off for its workers.
The travel and fashion industries have jumped on board the Good Ship Justice as well; but with mixed results.
Airbnb, the site offering use of private homes to member guests reiterated that it will do more to curb discrimination at the time of booking. The travel journal, AFAR, posted this as the subject of a notice:
"AFAR Is Too White—and We Plan to Change That".
Famous celebrity stylist and fashion entrepreneur Rachel Zoe for several days on end has made the focus of her web magazine's features / e-mail newsletters the work of up-and-coming Black designers. Virgil Abloh, who is also Black, the owner of the brand Off-White and the principal designer for Louis Vuitton men's line, bowed under pressure when he received pushback for criticizing the actions of those Floyd supporters turned rioters who looted the Vuitton stores.
Though it's deemed by many that Abloh spoke with the most tact that could be applied, he inevitably apologized for speaking out and donated money to the bail fund for his legal adversaries. A quote from The Business of Fashion, a trade magazine, reads, "People responding to looting but not to black cries for change is irresponsible and dismissive."
It's obvious from the recent change in corporate response that social controversies (legitimate or not) are known to be bad for business.
UPDATE: Mars Inc. has conceded to the need to review the image of its Uncle Ben's line.
