    Senator Sessions references the Bright Future Jobs article in the AP News:
    “This is another Associated Press article: ‘Backlash Stirs in US Against Foreign Worker Visas.’
    ‘But amid calls for expanding the so-called H-1B visa program, there is a growing pushback from Americans who argue that the program has been hijacked by staffing companies that import cheaper, lower-level workers to replace more expensive U.S. workers—or keep them from being hired in the first place.’ "

    Senator Sessions goes on to say (among other things):
    “I feel a deep duty to the millions of Alabamians I represent and the whole country, and I do my best every day to ask what is in their interests…"
    “I know who I represent. I represent the citizens of the United States of America, and I am trying to do what is in their best interest.”

    Let's be the Home of the Brave again

    Our nation's workforce and new grads are diverse, talented and abundant.  Yet tech giants falsely accuse women, minorities, older workers--in order to divert the public's attention away from their discriminatory recruiting and hiring practices.
     
    PetitionGraphic.pngThis pattern has emerged:

    Manpower started recruiting abroad 7 months ago (Oct. 2013) for jobs that won’t start for another 5 to 10 months (between October 2014 and March 2015).  They didn't give U.S. workers a chance. They're still doing this.
     
    The Department of Justice (DOJ) caught IBM posting “No Americans Need Apply” job ads.  One was for a job in Boise, Idaho.
     
    Infosys, a global IT services company, is facing a lawsuit alleging national origin discrimination.  According to the laws suit, 90% of their employees are South Asian. Even their own EEO reports show this!
     
    Manpower, IBM and Infosys must start accepting applications from qualified Americans in a fair and ethical way--it's that simple. We'll call off the boycott when we see ads like this--recruiting American tech pros for jobs 18 months in the future.

    Yes, I will join and support this national effort to return to Equal Opportunity and the American Way:
