Leading technology superstars from Facebook, Google and other leading multinational companies, including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, have teamed up to form a new political advocacy group to promote a competitive American workforce. First on the agenda of this new group, called FWD.us, is comprehensive immigration reform. The group will also focus on educational reform and scientific research.
FWD.us (short for Forward U.S.) will get started immediately in advance of the Senate vote on immigration reform scheduled for April 17. The group is expected to support the Gang of Eight legislation, which calls for a path to citizenship, tougher border security and a guest worker program for workers.
