    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:

    Glad to hear about this raised awareness. H1B visas misuse is only a part of the problem. Multi-level India based recruiting, interviewing and hiring, as the middleman for US IT workers to get jobs with US companies can often be dysfunctional for all parties. The Indian govt has announced 5 million more Indian IT workers by 2015. Mommas better raise your babies to be cowboys, and cowgirls. ;(
