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:

    IBM was once a proud american corporation that hired great talented workers for the long term. The workers paid taxes and helped make the US and IBM great place to work.It is sad to see good paying jobs leave our country.

    I have experienced the “no Americans need apply” situation. After two interviews the agency said they hired an H-1b visa holder because he was $10,000 cheaper. I said to him “why did you not ask me to negotiate?”.

    Indians do everything to bring in, to train, to hire, to protect Indian co-workers from what I see in my last 12 years as Software Developer. Indians are well known for giving hard time to non-Indians! That is why for a IT job, only Raj need to apply ! Someone Must Stop it !

    Three years of hard labor and was released without any warning after I started to question employment practices by in Infosys.


    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.

    This blatant discrimination against Americans by multi-national corporations has got to stop. American jobs need, at least, be offered to Americans first!
