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.
This 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.
