My colleague David North wrote recently about a civil suit against Infosys, a large corporation that provides a cheap and plentiful supply of foreign labor to U.S. client businesses. As North documented, the company seems to excel at violating federal discrimination laws in favor of sourcing young Indian workers to its clientele, a propensity that has gotten it into hot water previously.
Most recently, things took a different twist when the New York State attorney general filed suit, alleging that Infosys was giving specific advice to its Indian worker referrals on how to avoid getting ensnared by U.S. consular and border officials, even though the conditions of their visas and entry precluded the right to work lawfully in the United States.
Shockingly the advice was even reduced to writing, including a “Do’s and Don’ts” memorandum among other things. The suit was settled for a million bucks — cheap at the price, as North also noted.
Citing the settlement, North posed this question: “Is not this evidence, given the repeated nature of the company’s infractions, sufficient for either the Department of Labor to put Infosys on the debarred list or for the Department of Homeland Security [DHS] to take similar action?”
Age discrimination has been spotted in China as well.
I guess one could expect it there, but here in America?
Why that is against our EEOC laws that our own government runs on.
And yes, as an employee of the dept of Veterans Affairs who is 60, I can guarantee that they practice it too.
From Mr. Matloff’s Blog.
An alert reader pointed me to this Bloomberg article on ageism in the Chinese tech sector. I’ve observed it myself, in the experience of a relative and her husband.
But the article incorrect in saying that the problem is even worse in China than in the U.S. Wrong! It’s just as bad in the U.S.; note that they even set 35 as the cutoff point (though some lower numbers are mentioned too), just like I do for the U.S. The U.S. firms are better at hiding it, that’s all.
One difference is that in the U.S. the primary motivation is cost savings, while in China it is a misguided notion that only young new graduates know the Latest and Greatest technologies. (U.S. companies make statements like that too, but it is mainly an excuse.)
Firms tout the low unemployment.
Meanwhile, Displaced Americans cower like mice because they are worried that they will be blackballed for telling their stories, which enables those firms.
Just think, you can do highly skilled work and get paid the grand sum of $800.00 per month.
And just think, even with that masters diploma, you too can be trained to work as an indentured servant.
A dozen Indian workers at an East Bay technology firm were promised salaries of up to $8,300 a month, but after the company brought them in under the controversial H-1B visa, they found themselves netting as little as $800 per month, the federal government alleged Tuesday.
Cloudwick Technologies of Newark has been ordered to pay about $175,000 to 12 employees for back wages after violating H-1B rules, the U.S. Department of Labor said. The company disputed some of the government’s claims.
“Investigators found that the company paid impacted employees well below the wage levels required under the H-1B program based on job skill level, and also made illegal deductions from workers’ salaries,” the department said in a news release. “As a result, some of the H-1B employees that Cloudwick brought from India with promised salaries of up to $8,300 per month instead received as little as $800 net per month.”
Cloudwick founder and CEO Mani Chhabra said Tuesday that the labor department “misrepresented” some facts about the company’s use of H-1B workers.
“Cloudwick has never brought resources from India,” Chhabra said. “All the resources are Master’s students that have educated in U.S. and then we hired and trained them.”
From time to time we get tips.
We post them here so that you can see what really is happening.

Think about it.
I’ve been trying to do this with no money.
You would have the following domains:
- Keep America At Work – www.KeepAmericaAtWork.com
- I Have The Skills – www.IHaveTheSkills.com
- Guest Worker Tips – www.GuestWorkerTips.com
- Concerned STEM Workers – www.ConcernedSTEMWorkers.com
- H-1B Hunting Licenses – www.H1BHuntingLicenses.com
With enough money, you could use keep america at work as your blog, you could list all of the displaced workers at I Have The Skills, you could use Guest Worker Tips to showcase the abuses being conducted, and you could have a dedicated section to deal with STEM Workers.
And you could outperform My Visa Jobs using Displaced American Software Developers.
And even though I would like to get back to making six figures, you could hire me for a reasonable salary to use your money to focus these sites on those subjects IF you didn’t have a plan to use them yourself.
