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:

    I’ve been a victim of hi-tech corporate manipulation my whole career in the Silicon Valley. Now that I’m getting older it’s becoming more difficult to land and retain employment.

    I understand this first hand as I worked in the it staffing industry for 8 years. Stop BillkGates in his efforts to increase the hb1 and other visas.

    Now is the time to stand up for American workers… Senator Jeff Sessions is with us (as well as Senator Grassley):


    The following is from Senator Jeff Sessions (Alabama) speech on the Senate floor, today 7/18/2014….

    Senator Sessions Remarks On Tech Layoffs And How The H-1B Visa Displaces American Workers:

    http://www.sessions.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/news-releases?ID=58a0e039-7401-4ed1-a276-98e0c642cd9a

    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.”

    What a ridiculous farce is this argument and employer behavior, claiming that Americans are not talented enough to hold available hi-tech jobs. Even our children have exceptional computer skills.

    The US should be like other countries, and make it harder for workers to come that have no reason to be here other than make money and send it home. One country that comes to mind is Canada. To get in you have to score a 65, have a support system, speak one of the 2 national languages, and be willing to bank 11,000 CAD or have a valid job offer. I am working on a Masters in Info Sec Mgmt, and I want to be able to get a fair wage when I get out of school!

    The rage of the HI-B IT workers taking jobs ffrom American either on shore or off source continues and must be checked and accounted for. In Ohio and Florida and Texas this problem is endemic and IT programmers, testers, help desk, you name it, IT workers are being replaced by foreign workers while America born workers are tossed aside. No replacement job in site. It is happening all over the country. Our workers cannot compete on wages and their lives are in ruin.


    Now is the time to take action. When the below petition is delivered to the White House and Congress, every zip code representing a congressman will be sent a copy of the petition.


    “The Information Technology workers of America are losing jobs due to Out Sourcing and H1B Influx. Our workers cannot compete on wages and their lives are in ruin.”

    The H1B program is hurting America. Companies can EASILY find qualified folks in the USA.
