Nasscom, THE Displaced American skilled software developer does NOT live like this because there is a shortage of skilled workers

Now, if you want to talk about discrimination, lets talk about age discrimination and caste discrimination that is discriminating against Americans in America which is against our laws.

MUMBAI: In a bid to counter the bill for H1-B visas which has been re-introduced in the US Congress after a failed attempt in July last year, Nasscom will highlight the discriminatory nature of the proposed provisions, a top official said.

“The US government’s statistics said there is shortage of skilled workers. It is question of demand and supply. The current bill and many other such legislative measures are applied on a discriminatory basis.

“We continue to share our perceptions about the skill shortages that exist, the kind of contribution the IT industry has made to corporate America. We share our deep concern at the discriminatory nature of the proposed provisions,” Nasscom’s President R. Chandrashekhar told BTVi in an interview.

L1 visa importing more foreign workers than H1b

Received this note from skp301 today

Felt it was worth sharing as I have heard that the L-1 and the B-1 were being used substantially more than the H-1B, but I don’t normally mention it as I can’t find any government data on it.

Happy New Year!
You are doing an amazing job for the software community through your site !
I want to bring attention to something far more dangerous than H1b visa abuse. You are focusing on H1b visa abuse rightly so.
However, I recently found this new visa type called L1 visa. It was an eye opener. Check this link I found online,
L1 visa is replacing more jobs than H1b does and no one knows about it. It’s almost exclusively used by outsourcing companies.
Unlike H1b visa, it has
no annual limits,
no minimum pay,
dependents allowed to work
and other fantastic benefits.
The problem is, people have no awareness about L1 at all. If H1b is made stricter, outsourcers will continue unaffected because they will just shift to more L1s.
Could you please share the above link and the information in your blog and help bring attention to this important topic. 
Let me know if you need anything more.
Once again, you are doing an amazing job for the community! Thank you for that.

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:

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.

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:

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:
