    Jackson, you hit the nail on the head. Yes, HR managers & workers do know that the legal discrimination provided by visa laws also opens their company to big, fat Title 7 lawsuits. (Jackson is using the proper term but it’s widely and incorrectly called EEO by average Americans so i stick with this term.)
    Actually, Jackson, right now it is better to forward this video to friends and family at the moment. In a couple of weeks, we’ll have a large # of Americans contacting Congress.
    BTW, getting huge, positive feedback from the email—even donations! I think we hit a home run. Let’s see; please send around and let me know the results you are receiving.

    Sadly, too many Americans are using the shortage myth against their fellow American women and minorities. We need to educate Americans on the talent we have in this country.

    Who Knows the Secret?

    Well, most people don't know the secret...that's the nature of secrets. 

    Those who know the secret are getting a bit weary because so many reporters and notables don't know the secret.  In fact, Dr. Michael Teitlebaum said so in his testimony at the House Judiciary Committee on Feb. 5, 2013:

    "There are many criticisms of these temporary visas as they have evolved since 1997, including concerns about wage suppression, indentured workers, and use of such visas to promote offshore outsourcing."

    "I believe this Committee will be holding hearings on such matters in the future, so I will not offer comments here other than to say it would be desirable to see the end of incorrect statements in the press that all employers seeking H-1B visas must show that they have first tried to attract U.S. workers for these positions."

    Dr. Michael Teitelbaum, Senior Advisor to the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, Wertheim Fellow at Harvard Law School, and member of the Center of Migration Studies’ (CMS’s) Board of Trustees.

    So in honor of him, we're on the hunt to find out, "Who knows the secret and who doesn't?"

    Start recruiting

    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:

    Ken, you actually almost answered your own question by stating, “Avant’s overt enticement to lure visa workers for local U.S. jobs”. So DOJ busted them because it is an overt enticement to visa workers. Immigration laws says companies can’t prefer visa workers over US citizens.

    But I’ll answer another question. We have contradictory laws at the moment. So EEO says you can’t discriminate against national origin. And the 1986 immigration law says you can’t discriminate against US citizens. However, the 1990 H1-b law never supported the above 2 laws by requiring employers to seek and hire American talent first.

    Yes, IT consulting firms post discriminatory want ads all over the Internet. See our report in the tab: In the press.
