Manpower is blocking Americans from jobs available in 2014 and 2015 by only recruiting for these jobs on an Indian job portal. Yes, you read that right--next year and the year after that.
Manpower just posted this job ad on Oct. 30, 2013 to fill their U.S. job openings between October 2014 and March 2015. (The actual ad on the right has been reformatted for easier viewing.)
It states that permanent jobs are available through their subsidiary, Experis, in "Portland, Virginia and Michigan or any of the client locations in USA." Manpower will be paying for any visa expenses.
It's not just one ad. Manpower is also recruiting to fill a .NET developer position on U.S soil.
Manpower must start accepting applications from qualified Americans--it's that simple. When Manpower feels the heat of public pressure, they will stop blocking local talent for local jobs.
P.S. If you are a Java or .NET professional and want these jobs, please apply. If you suspect that Manpower has rejected you because of your citizenship status, file a charge with the DOJ.
Sign the Petition: "Manpower must immediately give Americans a shot at all job openings on U.S. soil by immediately re-posting this job ad on a U.S job portal. All job ads on foreign job portals that recruit to fill jobs on U.S. soil must be re-posted where Americans are numerous. Manpower must 'get right with the American people' and stop breaking Equal Opportunity laws."
I was contracted by Infosys back on February 2011 to work at their largest US base client – Verizon.
After an intense interview with Infosys, I was promised an hourly rate of $69 dollars then I was requested to interview with their key client – Verizon also a – three week interview process – and after Verizon accepting my qualifications I was told the hourly rate I was going to be paid was $45 dollars without any explanation and I was to accept it or not. After one year at the job I was able to find a permanent position with another company, when I gave my resignation Infosys matched the salary and gave me a bonus incentive with total package $129,000 yearly . Then Infosys started to demand and harass me to obtain additional work at verizon – right after the second year I was able to put in place a large project adding 9 additional individuals – I noticed infosys employment practices by hiring only Indian decent staff. After critiquing their employment techniques I was told they are not renewing my contract without any explanations, three months ago I had a face to face meeting with the VP of Americas from Infosys who verbally promised me that I was going to have a long relationship with Infosys and not to worry my contract was going to be extended. This past week I finalized the sign-off implementation of the project I referred in the beginning and just yesterday I was told my contract will not be renewed.
I seek to find a way to understand how can I fight this injustice and provide a voice for others to see what is going on with our employment rights in the USA.
