The War On US Workers

IT workers are challenging the replacement of U.S. employees with foreign visa holders. Lawsuits are on the rise and workers are contacting lawmakers. Disney workers who lost their jobs on Jan. 30, 2015, are especially aggressive.

There's a reason for this.

The Disney severance package offered to them did not include a non-disparagement clause, making it easier for laid-off workers to speak out. This is in contrast to the severance offered to Northeast Utility workers.

The utility, now known as Eversource Energy and based in Connecticut and Massachusetts, laid off approximately 200 IT employees in 2014 after contracting with two India-based offshore outsourcing firms. The employees contacted local media and lawmakers to pressure the utility to abandon its outsourcing plan.

This has been going on for some time. I personally witnessed a mass replacement of IT workers by Illinois Power when I worked for them in 1999.

It is often claimed that hiring foreign workers is necessary due to a lack of pertinent skills in the US work force. This claim is a falsehood:

Contrary to [some] assertions, there are more than 11 million Americans with degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) who lack employment in these fields, and U.S. schools are graduating two times more students with STEM degrees than are annually finding employment in these fields.

US corporations and political leaders are waging war on US workers. They fully intend to bring us down to the wage level of the rest of the world. To do so clearly will destroy our way of life.

Is that what you want?
