Discrimination against American technical professionals--for job openings on U.S. soil--is widespread but hidden from the American public. The Department of Justice (DOJ) caught IBM red-handed, placing want ads that discriminated against U.S. citizens and green card holders. While this was widely covered, the story hasn't gained momentum largely due to IBM's press spokesman's "non-comment."
It's clear that tech companies like IBM don't want you to know they brazenly break EEO laws. They cover these white-collar crimes up by falsely accusing Americans of all stripes and flavors:
- Experienced, highly-skilled performers are too old
- New grads are too inexperienced
- Women, Blacks and Hispanics aren't "smart enough" to major in these fields
- Our public schools can't teach
- Our universities can't graduate enough STEM students
The worst part? We believe them and we blame each other, never knowing that white collar crimes--in recruiting and hiring--are being committed against us.
Yes, you've been lied to and betrayed. Will you share this page so we stop blaming each other and fix these hiring practices?
