It is time to revoke all licenses that University California San Francisco holds and immediately fire all staff

The only reason a college exists in America is to train our citizens for the better paying jobs that need more skills than our people possess.

Many of these jobs exist at our colleges.

When a college denies our people the opportunity to compete for these jobs, they have no reason to exist as a college.

Laid-Off Workers to Protest UCSF Offshoring

This was sent by the CWA:

SAN FRANCISCO — On their last day of work, pink-slipped employees will protest the University of California, San Francisco’s decision to replace them with lower-paid workers from India. It is the first time a public university has ever offshored American information technology jobs, undermining its own mission to prepare students for high-tech careers.

WHAT: Laid-off workers demonstrate outside UCSF

WHEN: 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2017

WHERE: 1855 Folsom St., San Francisco, CA, 94143

Tomorrow, 79 employees in UCSF’s IT department will lose their middle-class, family-supporting jobs.

It’s the outcome of UC awarding HCL, an outsourcing company headquartered in India, a multimillion-dollar contract to manage the university’s IT infrastructure and networking-related services. Shortly inking the deal last summer, UCSF announced the layoffs. Since then, as a condition of their severance, employees have trained HCL staffers in India over videoconference and workers brought to UCSF on H-1B visas how to do their jobs.

The offshoring could soon spread beyond UCSF, as the HCL contract can be utilized by any of the 10 campuses in the UC system.

You cannot say you need more talent with a straight face when you actively suppress, ignore, and reject talented and capable individuals like Fowler and her colleagues.

A blog by Susan Fowler, a female engineer who spent a year at the ride-sharing app Uber, has caused a certain amount of fuss with its revelations of sexual harassment and discrimination. The outrage would probably have been greater, though, had the technology sector – which so often presents itself as the progressive, acceptable face of capitalism – not already been suffering from a poor reputation in this area. Widely reported research shows that, while Uber’s proportion of women in technical roles is at 15.1% pretty low, it is not markedly out of kilter with the numbers elsewhere in the technology sector.

In recent days, the industry has been at the forefront of criticisms of the immigration policies of the Trump Administration. This is all very commendable, but, as an article in Inc magazine points out: “The tech industry cannot go to Washington, beg Congress for open borders and more H-1b visas, and argue that there is not enough talent in America capable of building its machines and writing its codes when you have environments like the one that Fowler dealt with at Uber. You cannot say you need more talent with a straight face when you actively suppress, ignore, and reject talented and capable individuals like Fowler and her colleagues.”

I only need a half million bucks to kick corporate America in the balls, if it saves your job, would you help?

they won’t listen to me, but here is how I would do it.

In each of these cities, I would place a ad, full page preferrably.
I would state that your data (insert company name here) and its security is being violated by the corporate executives.
I would also post a list of the workers being imported in each specific city.
Enter (enter company name here) in that box and you will only see 4 h-1b visas being imported, which tells me that they are going through a contractor, so you would need to enter the contractor name in that box.
What I can’t get folks to realize is, the jobs being replaced only hold 42,034,730 of the working population.
93,093,580 of the working population are oblivious to what is happening.
Which means you need to wake them up and help them realize that it is THEIR data, and eventually THEIR jobs that are going to be taken
Click to zoom in
Figure 5,000 bucks times 100 cities for one wake up call.
That is only 1/2 million bucks.
Pocket change in the overall scheme of things and it would send the tech industry, and all corporations in America a very large peer pressure wake up call.
Feel free to share.
This is how I would do it.
They will not listen to me so it doesn’t get done.

Mike Rogoway , perhaps you and the Oregonian should do a little homework first?

Overall, H-1B visa holders represent a tiny share of the American work force: They’re capped by law at 85,000 per year, with recipients chosen by lottery. Fewer than 40 percent of applicants actually receive visas.

http://www.oregonlive.com/silicon-forest/index.ssf/2017/02/confusion_delay_as_trump_consi.html

It is the cumulative effect of all years that has taken its toll on the American Software Developers.

Click to zoom in

As for the total of H-1B visas issued, it is awful close to 3 million now and since 65% go for software jobs, and there are only 4 million software jobs, it is a very massive number.

To understand what is happening, perhaps we should let the software developers themselves tell that story?

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1487763804597717/

 

Once again, Trumps lying media tells only part of the story about the victim, but nothing about what caused the problem.

I have been forced into begging for entry level jobs because of the H-1B scam.

I am NOT the only one.

Yet you will not find the media telling our story.

So the story grows worse for both the non-immigrant guest workers and the American citizens that America has turned its back on.

Purinton is a Navy veteran and former air traffic controller, and Berthelsen, a 57-year-old contractor, said his neighbor did IT work in the past. But over the past year, Purinton worked at liquor and hardware stores and washed dishes at a pizza parlor, Berthelsen said.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-kansas-bar-shooting-suspect-20170225-story.html

I still remember when I went in the Navy.

I didn’t like the structure, but it helped me to achieve the skills I have today.

I’m sure the same happened for this guy.

Remember when Reagan fired more than 11,000 Air Traffic Controllers?

Was this guy one of them?

I ask because at that point Reagan made it impossible for him to find good paying work, and probably cost him his pension.

So it appears that he pulled himself up by his boot straps and became an IT worker.

Well, all of us, including Kevin Flanagan can tell you what that will do to your future now that our government has made a policy out of selling H-1B Hunting Licenses for companies to use non-immigrant guest workers as the ammunition to destroy our future.

On May 13, The Contra Costa Times reported on an event that should trouble us all—the suicide of Kevin Flanagan, 41. (“Job losses sap morale of workers,” by Ellen Lee – elee@cctimes.com) Kevin was not a drug addict, a convict, or a ne`er-do-well; he was a trained computer programmer with years of experience whose job was sent overseas. The Contra Costa Times story reports that “led by the information-technology industry, 3.3 million service jobs and $136 billion in wages will move from the United States to such countries as India and Russia over the next decade or so.”

At the same time, the federal government is cooperating with hugely-profitable computer companies to relax H-1b visa restrictions, so thousands more programmers from India, Pakistan, and other impoverished countries can pour into the U.S.—to compete with American programmers like Kevin. In 2002, Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman characterized H-1B visas as a “government subsidy program.”

A month ago, Kevin Flanagan found out that he`d be losing his job at the Bank of America`s Concord Technology Center. That same day, he took his life—in the parking lot of his former employer.

It wasn`t that Flanagan was surprised to lose his job—he`d seen it coming for months, as his father told the paper. Flanagan had watched as veteran co-workers were forced to train newcomers from India—then fired and replaced by the immigrants. One former employee told the CC Times that employees at Concord feel like they`re “on death row. Every day you think, `Is this the day I`m gone?` he said.”

I understand what both of these folks are going through because I’m there myself.

There is nobody willing to help us with work that will allow us to work our way back up the ladder.

Hell, there are no higher jobs to work too as technology is the best job in America and it is now closed to us by the door of Greed.

Meanwhile, to put another nail in our coffin, the green card advocates want to import even more non-immigrant guest workers and laugh at us because we are not willing to compete when we explain to them that we are not allowed to compete because of caste, age discrimination and outright discrimination by our companies.

Leaving us with nowhere to turn and begging for entry level work.

So yes, I understand this guys pain.

As an example, I desperately need work that will allow me to put a roof over my head as you can see by this article.

But there are no jobs to be held, and I’m forced to file age discrimination complaints against the Department of Veterans Affairs simply for my right to live.

Yet I do not hear Trump’s Lying Media even discussing these things.

 

Tom Perez, you and Ammar Campa-Najjar ignored my plea for help, so I do not believe you have my future as an American citizen in your vision…

Virgil, this is a “where were ya?” moment. Years from now, our children and grandchildren will ask us where we were when Trump and the GOP attacked the core values of our country and our party.

I vowed after November 8th, 2016 that I would do whatever I could to move our party forward, and I’m honored to step into this new role as Chair of the DNC today.

I want to be able to say I did everything in my power to fight back. How about you, Virgil?

If we’re going to organize and fight and win, it’s going to take folks like you at every level. We need to strengthen our team from the grassroots up to build the party that empowers every single Democrat to fight for our progressive values and vision of opportunity and optimism.

Our only chance at winning in 2017, 2018, and beyond — not only at the national level, but at every level — is to be united in a common purpose. And that has to start now.

Thanks — I look forward to working with you!

Tom

We need jobs.

I have over 30 years of technology experience where I have worn all hats in software from developer to project manager.
I have now been unemployed for nearly six years and I have not had steady work since 2003.
Art is one of the best programmers I have ever worked with and he too is experiencing the same things I am.
There are millions of us.
If you truly want to help, study the charts on this page and get me in touch with those that can put us back to work or use this material to convince them yourself.
I will convince them what really is happening if you want me too.
By them, I am referring to Trump, Sessions, Obama.
People at that level.
We are being destroyed out here.
When we get forced out of software, nobody at the lower levels will hire us as we are overqualified and we’ve made too much money in the past and we won’t stay.
Whether it is age discrimination, caste, or we simply have more people than we do jobs, I do not know, but the “foreign born” and “native born” charts support my statement.
But I want to work as does Art, and we have the best skills out there.
Since you are representing the DOL, look up the VRAP program.
I am a graduate of that as well, and the DOL and the VA promised Employment Assistance yet none was offered as their employment assistance is to forward me to the Texas Workforce Commission who is as worthless as teats on a boar hog.
Texas Workforce Commission approved me for unemployment assistance.
The only thing I have left to my name is my land that I am buying with payments of $625.00 per month which I hoped I would be able to hold on until I get social security at 65, but I now owe the 29 October 2016 payment and november 29 is rapidly approaching and I will be totally destroyed if I lose that too.
I have an appointment at the VA hospital tomorrow for my annual checkup, but I’m available anytime after that although you don’t need to call me unless you want too simply because I have laid everything out here.
You have the ear of Mr. Perez.
He believes things are fine.
They are not.
That is why I voted for Trump.
I appreciate the donation as my old pickup was on fumes.
I put 20 gas in the truck so I can make it to the VA tomorrow.
And I used 50 to launch the website linked below because I believe it is immoral for our government agencies to use money that American Citizens have paid in to outsource their work to companies that refuse to hire Americans in America.
If my truck makes it, and any money is left, I will treat myself to a decent meal as I’m sick of bologna and wienies (sure I have foodstamps, but it is a 40 mile round trip to the grocery store, so without gas, you are pretty well limited to the convenience store or family dollar.
That is the state of America for American software developers who have been displaced by the H-1B scam.
Respectfully,

The following shows all the emails that I attempted to send to Mr. Perez when he was in charge of the Department of Labor.
He IGNORED my cries for help.

Such hatred is not good for people.

It is sad that it takes things like this for people to wake up.

Many of our larger employers are sending their jobs to other countries leaving our citizens with no job and no future.

And many others are importing non-immigrant guest workers to take the remaining jobs leaving our citizens with no job and no future.

This is creating a volcano that is going to erupt and the only way to stop it is for the governments of India and America to realize that it is up to them to provide an environment where all of the people that want too can provide for their families, which is not being done.

“The situation seems to be pretty bad after Trump took over as the U.S. president. I appeal to all the parents in India not to send their children to the United States in the present circumstances,” Reddy said.

Madhav told The Post in an interview that Kuchibhotla’s family was in shock, and that it was the third such possible hate crime in recent weeks that has affected members of the Telegu-speaking Southern Indian community in the United States.

“Something has changed in the United States,” he said. “Such things are not good for the Indian community living here.”

In India, the minister of external affairs, Sushma Swaraj, said she was “shocked” by the attack and “rushed” two diplomats to Kansas from the Indian Consulate in Houston. Meanwhile, cable news channels debated whether the United States was now a danger zone for those with brown skin. “Is this the new normal?” an anchor on NDTV news channel wondered.

Fourteen years now that I have been unable to find full time employment.

Family, Friends, and Neighbors turn their nose up at me and say get a job.

I can’t say I blame them because they do not know what they don’t know because our government is not counting the long term unemployed who for the most part are former STEM workers who have been displaced from the middle class.

As you can see by this chart of total non farm payroll jobs from 1939 till present day, we are NOT creating any new jobs and haven’t since the high point we hit in 2007.

We need jobs folks.

Both the American Citizen and the non-immigrant guest worker.

And our countries are not producing them, but they are pitting us against each other which is causing this type of stuff.

William Stock, we have the workforce in America, but we are not given the opportunity to compete

“In attempting to reduce the incentive to bring consultants into the US, the dynamic that will be created is incentives to move the entire project outside the US,” said William Stock, an immigration lawyer and president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. “The big workaround is going to be: ‘How do we ship this work overseas? Because we don’t have the workforce in the US.’”

https://qz.com/917824/indian-techies-dont-need-the-us-their-talent-is-welcome-elsewhere/

For me, the big workaround is how do we make it so that none of our data can be maintained anywhere but in America and only by American citizens.

 

President Trump, THE Displaced American Software Developer and Navy Veteran would appreciate you doing what you said you would.

If I had the money to build me a eight foot by eight foot deck and some walls like the mash hospital outdoor showers used to show, I could have a shower, shitter and a way to wash my dishes.

Oh yes, I need a propane regulator to see if it would all work.

While you are closing bathrooms to transgenders, I’m praying for a working one.

But hell, you wouldn’t know about that would you President Trump.

After all, you only said you were going to make America Great Again so that you could get elected.

This is how I currently wash my dishes.

Somebody donated a 30 gallon barrel the other day so now I have water.

And I bought this dc pump a few years ago but I lost my cabin so I never got to use it.

Same thing for this hot water heater.

No idea if it works or not, but if I had about $40 for a bottle of propane and a regulator, I could try it out.

The plan is to build me a 8 x 8 deck outside and use that shower nozzle to wash dishes on the table and hang it on the wall for a shower.

After all, Americans innovate don’t they when faced with adversity.

We just never knew our own government would be the ones creating that adversity for Americans in America.

I should put it in this cabin, but if I can’t find a way to make an extra $305 every month, I will lose it.

Click to zoom in

Just like I lost the last one.

Yes, I know.

If I would just get a job, I wouldn’t have these problems.

Funny thing about being a ex software developer is you are deemed overqualified.

That is the kiss of death.

Hell, I can’t get hired at walmart.

And even though I have file an age discrimination complaint against the Dept of Veterans Affairs and we have mediation next week, I won’t be able to make it as I have no money and just like you promised to make America great again, they have also promised to end veteran homelessness.

Problem is, you have to totally lose everything before they will do their part.

Is that how you work too?

 

The Trump Administration had better take care of Americans in America like they promised, or pack their bags and get out

The Trump administration should reconsider its position on H-1B visas, a senior Congress leader has said, warning that any move to curb these visas could become an “emotional irritant” in the Indo-US ties.

According to reports, President Donald Trump is considering an executive order to clamp down on work visas and flow of skilled manpower, a move that may impact Indian IT companies.

“The US government should reconsider its position on H-1B (visas). There is certain amount of intellectual investment which India has made in the development of tech industry on the US,” Congress party spokesperson Manish Tewari said.

Any such move “has the potential of becoming an emotional irritant in ties between India and the United States,” he warned.

Tewari was speaking to a group of reporters at a media round table at the Atlantic Council, a top American think-tank where he is a senior fellow at its South Asia Center.
