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’m a U.S. citizen of Indian origin and wholeheartedly support any legislation that prevents jobs being outsourced to India. The reason that is given that there is a shortage of skilled labor in the U.S. is totally bogus. What American companies and CEOs most of whom are supposed to be American don’t want to do is to train older workers in the U.S. who bring wisdom and life skills, which in my view are much more important to business success, and which these short sighted CEOs driven by Wall St greed don’t get.

    It is bad enough when a company moves IT operations off shore. But bringing a person to the US to replace you is adding insult to injury. The H-1B program is a scam. It’s not the best and brightest from around the world. It is cheap, disposable labor. Congress needs to reduce the cap substantially while the economy is such a mess.

    Yes, they need jobs too.

    But, this is America, and we are American’s, and we need jobs too.


    How about we do more to Keep America At Work?

    Check the job openings listed for these Indian IT companies here in US. Infosys has three, TCS has couple of them and the same story and pattern continues with the rest. If they don’t advertise these jobs, how can the local applicants apply? Check out fortue 500 companies and they are filled with their H1B workers. And now they will be allowing the spouses of these H1B’s to work here. Please take step and stop this non sense.

    IBM and all the others can pound sand! It is time the PEOPLE take America back. Let the H1-B’s find work somewhere else in the world, we are full!

    Hi,


    I was working with IBM as Contractor in San Diego CA and I was rolled off from the Project in 14th Mar 2014 due to they bring H1-B employee from India.


    I trained him for a year and moment he got the US VISA they rolled me off. As i am working as contractor i did not go to labour court because i did not know whether i have right to as contractor.


    How can these type of company do with US national.


    Thanks

    Pranav

    It’s time we stood up and be counted against the CoC, Big Business and other special interest group0s. And don’t forget to comment at

    With one stroke of his unilateral pen, Obama looks to bypass Congress and pay back Silicon Valley’s 8 Billion+ in donations and put another 100,000 Americans out of work in favor of the spouses of H1b holders.


    Read the comments. We need more from Americans against this proposal. Right now, it’s filled with H1bs telling how much “It will help their families and make American business stronger”. Well, the first part is true anyway. I guess the 100,000 Americans it will displace doesn’t matter.
