USAA, Rackspace, Dept. of Veterans Affairs – Let me introduce you to the Department of Justice.

Like most my age, my life has been destroyed by those that prefer to hire H-1B’s INSTEAD of Americans.

I have applied numerous times with rackspace, USAA and the Department of Veteran Affairs for jobs that I am very capable of, yet they NEVER interview us and all you have to do is drive down Fredericksburg road in San Antonio outside USAA to see why.

From 2003 till 2010 I used to submit over 100 applications per day, every day, and I very seldom, if ever, was interviewed.

So I have gave up applying for jobs that I could do in my sleep because it is very obvious that the deck is stacked against me in this era where they find every excuse they can so that they do not have to hire an American and what really saddens me is two of these organizations are supposedly for veterans, of which I am one.

Lets review the info step by step that is happening in this area.

First lets look at the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Click to zoom in

Notice how they contract the work out and then let these people work from communist china using privately owned equipment?

As a veteran who is quite capable of doing the software jobs from developer to project manager, I take offense with this, and if you would like to review this information in more detail, please click on the following link.

vaoig-13-01730-159

And then ask yourself, why are we letting government agencies contract their work out to companies that refuse to hire Americans and prefer to hire non-immigrant guest workers?

And then lets look at USAA

A reader sent me this which is pretty well self explanatory.

I worked at USAA for 2 years.  Part of their service desk.  When I got there, the service desk was being run by Kforce,  Kforce got fired, another company came in.  That company?  The infamous HCL.  Not only was management all Indians, but they cheated and abused the law.  We didn’t paid 1.5x overtime, they labeled us as “Flexible work hours” employees and paid us on a sliding 0.5x OT.  When that got too dangerous as lawyers started making inquiries they quit paying us OT on our paychecks an started handing out $10 an hour gift cards.
That’s IF you worked OT at their request.
It get’s better.
My group was the internal service desk, we did software fix for employees.  HCL paid us salaried, but wanted to move us to hourly.  They couldn’t.  So instead of hiring under that contract with USAA that forced the salaries, they subcontracted for nearly 40% LESS Pay to do the same job.
It get’s better.
The internal HARDWARE teams, that installed and maintained employees PC’s?  All were USAA Employees.  Were, I say because HCL came in, took over that desk and forced all the USAA Employees to convert to the HCL or quit.  Less pay, less benefits.
It get’s better.
Most of USAA’s IT Programming and support?  Chennai India.  If you come to San Antonio, take a walk along Fredricksburg road.  Guess what?  Little India, all USAA workers.
It get’s better.
HCL is contracted to say pay each of these H1B Visa employees say.. 45k a year, but they only get 25K, and are told if they say anything, they’ll lose their visa’s.
HCL Management pockets the difference.
USAA knows about this, they don’t care.
The ALL AMERICAN, Pro-US MILITARY, VETERAN (Of which I am) FInancial and Insurance agency… is a major employer of not Veterans, or Americans…

Now I realize why I have been unable to be hired there even though I am a Navy Veteran.

Again, why are we letting our companies contract their work out to companies that discriminate against Americans in America?

As of today, I am going to start applying again for those jobs like systems analyst, .net developer, and project manager.

And if I find out that those companies in the greater Austin and San Antonio area are violating the following, you can bet your ass that I am going to contact these people as I have had enough after nearly 14 years of very unsteady work because of the H-1B SCAM.

Justice Department Cautions Employers Seeking H-1B Visas Not to Discriminate Against U.S. Workers

The Justice Department cautioned employers petitioning for H-1B visas not to discriminate against U.S. workers. The warning came as the federal government began accepting employers’ H-1B visa petitions for the next fiscal year. The H-1B visa program allows companies in the United States to temporarily employ foreign workers in specialty occupations such as science and information technology.

 

The anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) generally prohibits employers from discriminating against U.S. workers because of their citizenship or national origin in hiring, firing and recruiting. Employers violate the INA if they have a discriminatory hiring preference that favors H-1B visa holders over U.S. workers.

 

“The Justice Department will not tolerate employers misusing the H-1B visa process to discriminate against U.S. workers,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Tom Wheeler of the Civil Rights Division. “U.S. workers should not be placed in a disfavored status, and the department is wholeheartedly committed to investigating and vigorously prosecuting these claims.”

 

The division’s Immigrant and Employee Rights Section (IER), formerly known as the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices, is responsible for enforcing the anti-discrimination provision of the INA.  The statute prohibits, among other things, citizenship, immigration status and national origin discrimination in hiring, firing or recruitment or referral for a fee; unfair documentary practices; retaliation and intimidation.

For more information about protections against employment discrimination under immigration laws, call IER’s worker hotline at 1-800-255-7688 (1-800-237-2515, TTY for hearing impaired); call IER’s employer hotline at 1-800-255-8155 (1-800-237-2515, TTY for hearing impaired); sign up for a free webinar; email IER@usdoj.gov(link sends e-mail); or visit IER’s English and Spanish websites.

Applicants or employees who believe they were subjected to discrimination based on their citizenship, immigration status, or national origin in hiring, firing or recruitment or referral, should contact IER’s worker hotline for assistance.

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.

 

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?

 

Department of Labor, and Student Loan People, I am NOT going to jump through these hoops anymore

For years now, nearly a decade or more, I had hope that if I would finish my degree, I could get back to work as a Software Developer in America.

But after hearing from others who have a MBA, PHD, etc., I realized that it was not going to happen in an era when our Department of Labor and our Senators are selling H-1B Hunting Licenses to take our jobs.

I have signed these deferment forms for years now in the hope that I would get back to work.

No More.

If you want to take my birthday, my drivers license, my life, whatever, I don’t really give a shit anymore.

Subject: Student Loans past due

 

Folks, after six long years of unemployment because the Department of Labor is selling H-1B Hunting Licenses to Hunt American Jobs in America, I really no longer give a ???? what you do with these student loans as I have no way to pay for them ever when I can’t even buy a interview.

 

Respectfully,

 

IT workers have stopped being shy, and they are now protesting on the streets and getting persistent media coverage thanks to Sara and Patrick

2016 is Over: What is the Recent Past and Future of IT? Will Information Technology Jobs Survive as a Profession? Will the Trump Administration Come to the Rescue?

Pondering minds wonder what the future holds; here is my take.

When we first started the SAVE page, we only posted sad and revealing stories of IT Pros losing their jobs and maybe an article from Computer World. I posted once a month, it was that dead. Slowly the amount of articles posted has increased exponentially over time. In the last two years some significant progress has occurred on the visa reform playing field. Having read a ton of articles and posted many, I have observed and identified some milestones that have occurred that have improved our plight in the past two years.

Media outlets have increased their coverage dramatically since my life in posting began in the summer of 2014 on August 1. The book Sold Out was published, the New York Times and Sara Blackwell emerged and that has increased public awareness to a point we have not witnessed before. Computerworld has done a great service for IT workers. IT workers are speaking out and demonstrating on the streets and lawsuits are in motion.

The H-1B issue is now becoming more of a national conversation. Compared to two years ago, we are on a roll. When Trump and Blackwell entered the scene, the H-1B and other visa issues exploded on the media scene and the next year or so will tell us whether any change will occur in labor discrimination via various executive actions by the Trump administration.

Our job killing visa issues over time have passed thru various milestones and stages of progression into the world of power and influence.

Milestone 1: Identification of the H-1B, F-1 OPT, L-1 visa problem by means of various social media presence that emerged for education and to excerpt political pressure. IT professionals post their job lost experiences on various article posts. Heartbreaking. Late Summer of 2014. Nobody is listening and nobody cares.

Milestone 2: A major media story on the Disney layoff in the New York Times broke the H-1B issue wide open and educated the general public. Early summer, on June 4, 2015. Thousands of comments were posted on NYT site in outrage. Knowledge transfer and training a foreign guest worker as your replacement to receive severance pay blew minds.

Milestone 3: Publication of the book “Sold Out” in November of 2015. The level of detail and references in which the authors Michelle Malkin and John Miano delve into and describe about the US Government’s fraud ridden guest visa system and its adverse effects on US IT Citizens is amazing and shocking in its scope. The number of citations illustrated is breathtaking.

Milestone 4: Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions publicize H-1B policy in the Presidential campaign and in the February 25, 2015 Senate Committee on the Judiciary Committee “The Impact of High-Skilled Immigration on U.S. Workers” hearings. The H-1B issue hits pay dirt when it was brought up contentiously in the Presidential debate. The Senate hearing was powerful with Leo breakdown over his Disney hell generating thousands of You Tube Video hits. Breaking all social media records for the IT H-1B issue.

Milestone 5: The emergence of Sara Blackwell and her media events and TV interviews and association with the Trump campaign. IT workers have stopped being shy, and they are now protesting on the streets and getting persistent media coverage thanks to Sara and Patrick. This milestone is huge, for media pressure is what these companies do not like, especially local TV and national media coverage, but somehow they do not care and continue the H-1B madness. Witness Carnival Clowns Cruise Lines in Miami.

Milestone 6: The emergence of Breitbart News as the principal moral force with factorial reporting of H-1B layoffs; while the mainstream media ignores the plight of IT hell layoffs. The coverage of H-1B visa abuse has cracked open in several media sites that refused to cover the issue; case in point the Washington Post and Politico. Just to give you an idea, the SAVE or SAITJ page posted 100 headline posts in 2015. In 2016 over 500 headline posts and who knows how many comment posts were published. Suddenly there are H-1B and highly skilled visa workers articles all over the place.

Milestone 7: After years sitting on a rock unnoticed by USA media, the SAVE page has posted tons of Indian based articles. In many cases the Indian media articles are more forthcoming and informative than anything in US media. This page exposed the Indian lobbying group Immigration Voice (IV) and ITServe Alliance. The National Association of Software and Services Companies (Nasscom), the Indian IT Mafia and their RICO practices was identified and fed into the cultural lexicon. They did not like the sunshine and flashlights. Many congressmen were exposed and posted shaking hands with the likes of Immigration Voice (IV) Indians on Capital Hill scheming to get more green cards. Over 125 congressional traitors have signed up for the Indian cause, neglecting their own citizens. We faced bombed them on their FB pages.

Milestone 8: IT professionals have more advocate groups increasing their focus on the issue with groups such as the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), IEEE-USA, Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) and Numbers USA plus Protect US Workers are performing lobbying and social media functions for IT workers. These groups are already gaining clout in Trump Land.

Numbers USA and FAIR have been recently noted as growing in influence in the Washington DC halls of power in their effort to reduce legal immigrants holding illicit H-1B, and spousal H-4 visa and multiplying green cards that eliminate US jobs. Recent news reports indicate that Trump official are collaborating on policy action to remedy the imbalance of legal immigration and the effect on employment prospects of IT and STEM workers. The bleeding must stop so the wounds may heal.

Now What?

We need a different strategic approach to getting the laws changed in Congress.

We need to target the congressional committees that have jurisdiction over the visa abuse problems that have destroyed lives.

IT workers should target the congressmen in House of Representatives that have jurisdiction in committees and convince them of the nature of the problem – educate them. A letter writing campaign to include social media is required. I saw in articles published that IEEE-USA was effectively lobbying congress along with labor to move the Rep. Darrell Issa “Protect and Grow American Jobs Act” H-1B bill forward, it failed, but now we have congressional attention.

IT workers need lobbyists in DC to walk the halls of congress on our behalf in order to achieve a specific outcome. One baby step at a time outcome is the result.

I have come to the conclusion that no one magic wand will change the laws only a persistent and calculating lobbyist effort aimed at congressional members; both those that support our cause and those who do not support our cause.

But as this year 2016 ends, we have one big resource in our side; knock on wood, the President of the United States.

In a Washington Post article dated December 12, 2016 and titled: “After years on the outside, foes of legal immigration find a louder voice with Trump’s election”, the following is quoted.

“In his speech, Trump expressed a desire to cut legal immigration levels to “within historical norms,” as measured by a share of the overall population, and he proposed a new federal commission to develop proposals to achieve it.”

“The goal, he said, would be to “select immigrants based on their likelihood of success in U.S. society and their ability to be financially self-sufficient.” The new immigration system should establish “controls to boost wages and to ensure open jobs are offered to American workers first.”

“Trump has echoed the views of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), who is perhaps the Senate’s most vocal immigration hard-liner and whom Trump has nominated as U.S. attorney general.”

“Stephen Miller, a longtime Sessions aide who wrote most of Trump’s immigration speeches, has been named senior adviser to the president for policy in the Trump White House. And Stephen K. Bannon, Trump’s chief strategist, advocated for reducing legal immigration levels as editor of Breitbart News, a conservative website that reports extensively on the issue.”

“What we need now is immigration moderation: slowing the pace of new arrivals so that wages can rise, welfare rolls can shrink and the forces of assimilation can knit us all more closely together,” Sessions wrote in a Washington Post op-ed last year.

Presented is the SAVE page predictions on the visa alphabet soup front:

The Notorious H-1B: Expect Breitbart News to be on top of the issue on the media front. Computerworld as usual will be watching closely. Do not expect Congress to pass H-1B reform laws that either reduces the program or eliminates it as John Miano proposes. Expect Silicon Valley and the Crapweisals to be all over the Hill to keep the Greed Machine and their precious H-1B slave plantations in operation. Expect that Trump’s DHS will make life as miserable as possible in the H-1B process and regulation arena. For example, if a company pulls a Disney and tries to replace and train fresh H-1B’s, DHS can revoke the visas based on discrimination. The Labor Dept. will most likely investigate and enforce pending complaints in which 100% Indian males replaced a diverse IT shop. Blatant discrimination is not allowed anywhere in our economy; but somehow the Indians get a free pass. Jeff Sessions will be in the march and USCIS will continue what it does best, move slowly and inefficiently. That is a good thing.

The Mysterious L-1 Fly In Visa: The L-1 visa does not get the PR of the H-1B but it is infinitely more dangerous and prominent. Mike Emmons knows the L-1 visa very well. He states, “It’s the L-1 visas, however, that are dangerous to American jobs. The L-1 says nothing about whether or not American workers can be displaced, and there is no requirement that companies pay foreign workers the prevailing local wage. Companies like Tata can file blanket petitions to bring as many workers into the United States as they want, as often as they want.“ He further states, “The L-1 allows multinational corporations to import workers into the U.S. on an “intracompany transfer” basis with little monitoring, regulation or restrictions from the Department of Labor.” Senator Grassley is a major critic of the L-1 visa, but discussion of the L-1 and its complications evade debate and American media attention. It remains to be seen how the Trump Administration will proceed.

The F-1 Student Visa and the OPT Monster: Approximately 10% of US colleges enroll international students, most of them Indian, the figure used to be in the teens. US Universities love international students, the pay full tuition and provide revenue. The Optional Practical Training (OPT) is a program started by W, Bush and greatly expanded by Obama. It provides international students huge advantages in the job market and leaves our US native-born students STEM students at a competitive disadvantage. The OPT program is full of scam, multiple forms of corruption. The Trump DHS should ELIMINATE the OPT program. Whether that happens is up for a coin toss. At the least, the many rules implemented by Obama should be rescinded and that will be a time consuming process that could take up to two years. The F-1 OPT visas are in many minds highly destructive for it dis-encourages STEM based students majors from entering the field for fear of no job upon graduation and for fear of losing a job to an H-1B later in life if STEM graduate was so lucky to escape the parents basement.

The H-4 Bring All Your Relatives to this Country Visa: Expect the Trump Administration to sharply curtail the massive number of spousal family members from obtaining green cards. The Numbers USA goal from the Washington Post, I quote. “Today, the U.S. government awards green cards to more than 1 million foreigners annually, granting them legal permanent residence. Many of these are granted to family members of people already living legally in the United States. Groups such as NumbersUSA want to slash that by a half or more.”

Furthermore the article stated: “Of the 1 million foreigners granted permanent legal residence in 2014, 647,000 — about two-thirds — received green cards based on family ties, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Just 152,000 permanent arrivals were employment-based.” That is a 6 to 1 ratio of family members taking granted legal residence based on just one green card holder. A stunning number.

The Coveted Green Card: The Indian crowd can say goodbye to their coveted green card grab bag H.R.213 – Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2015. Maybe the bill’s sponsor Representative Jason Chaffetz (R) of Utah will get his head out of his ass, unlikely. Expect green cards to be cut back and more difficult to obtain especially for Grandma and the whole crew. This would be a great opportunity for the H-1B’s to go back to India and work on fixing their county instead of taking jobs away from our citizens. Remember, once the green card is issued and the guest worker is a US Citizen, game over. They start their own companies, corner the market for Indians only and do not hire Americans. The cycle of employment discrimination runs its wheels.

For the past 25 years, the IT profession in this country has been screwed over royally by the corrupt and blatantly unfair guest visa system devised by the Silicon Valley lobbyists and the Bill Clinton wrecking crew. The H-1B caterpillar contraption was subsequently updated and expanded by both Bush Presidents and by Obama. Now finally in the year 2016 we have reached a point where REAL reforms may actually occur.

The way things are going, all of IT will be Indian; we are at a tipping point. Will the Year 2017 be the Tipping Point? Which way will it go? We are all Eyes!

U.S. Dept of Education, thanks to the U.S. Dept of Veterans Affairs and the U.S. Dept of Labor, I don’t really give a damn anymore

Read here to see why I blame the U.S. Dept of Veterans Affairs:

http://keepamericaatwork.com/category/veterans-homelessness/

Why can’t I find work?

It would seem that the U.S. Dept of Labor makes a fortune selling hunting licenses to displace Americans from their jobs.

http://h1bhuntinglicenses.com/About

Amma Campa-Najaar who has the Dept of Labor’s ear knows full well about this, but they don’t give a damn about American citizens in America as you can tell by his email in the following document:

http://keepamericaatwork.com/call-dori-henry-at-the-department-of-labor-and-see-if-ammar-campa-najjar-is-a-government-employee-like-he-says-he-is/

So I can’t pay this and since I can’t even afford propane to keep warm, I’m no longer sure how long I can put up with this, let alone deal with this:

Current Balance: $11116.56

Your current balance reflects your outstanding principal balance plus any accrued interest for all of your student loans. This amount is current as of 01/06/2017, and does not reflect any subsequent changes to your account. Log in to your Nelnet.com account to view your full account details. Don’t have an account yet? Sign up for one.

Now no journalist will touch this because there is nothing in it for them.

Just another broke, nearly homeless veteran in a land where there are many of us.

If Ammar Campa-Najjar and the DOL would work to put Americans to work, maybe I wouldn’t be freezing

But instead of doing what they can do to Keep America At Work, they allow him to write articles to try and influence the future of our country.
