The lawsuit last year survived an effort by Infosys to dismiss it.
In the ruling to allow the case to proceed, U.S. District Court Judge Pamela Pepper wrote, in part, “that the plaintiffs’ allegations are sufficient to state claims that the defendants intentionally discriminated against them because of the plaintiff’s’ race, and the complaint is clear that the plaintiffs regard their race as distinct from the ‘South Asian race’ that the defendants allegedly favor.”
There were some 50 exhibits filed in this case, including one from a former Infosys recruiter who said, in a declaration, that in conference calls “many of the highly qualified American candidates we presented were being rejected in favor of Indian candidates.”
The first map identifies 2,000 employers who “actively and publicly prefer alien workers for at least some jobs” to U.S. workers.
“The formal name for this group of employers sounds like it comes from the field of abnormal psychology: they are ‘H-1B dependent,’” said Bryan Griffith and David North, authors of the CIS study.
This is the definition of the term: an employer with 25 full-time workers or fewer, with eight or more of them H-1Bs; with 26-50 workers, there are 13 or more H-1Bs; and with 51 or more there are 15 percent or more H-1Bs. Most users of the H-1B visa, in general, are not H-1B dependent.
The CIS study also notes how companies are able to discriminate in their hiring practices under the H1-B program in ways they ordinarily could not.
“Under U.S. law an employer gets into trouble, appropriately, for discriminating against African-Americans in favor of whites, or Gentiles in preference to Jews, but it is perfectly okay under the law for the same employer to hire alien workers (through the H-1B program) in preference to resident ones,” the authors write. “And if the employer decides that what he really wants, as some do, are twenty-some-odd males from one nation in Asia, that’s okay.
“Many employers are attracted to these workers because they can be paid at below-market wages, and they are docile and less likely to seek better jobs than their American peers.
“The second map shows H-1B employers who are classed as debarred or willful violators. They have, at some point in the past, violated the H-1B rules and have been denied the use of H-1B workers for a period of time. As we pointed out in a report about two years ago the department is, unfortunately, extremely reluctant to put erring employers in either category.”

Case in point
An Indian American hotelier in Michigan, Dipen Patel, 34, will be sentenced to jail after he admitted to using illegal chemicals he got from India to eliminate bed bugs in his guest rooms.
Got some bad news for you folks.
None of us have found jobs anywhere.
While I realize it is impossible to do as you need the money, the way to send a message is for everybody to walk out that has passwords, knowledge, etc and let their system grind to a halt so that the customers will realize something is happening and demand the CEO’s head on a platter.
Only then, will we begin to turn this tide.
This familiar IT story began a little differently. A few days before employees were notified in mid-October of their layoff, HCSC CEO Paula Steiner talked about future goals in an internal, company-wide video.
Steiner’s comments weren’t IT-department-specific, but the takeaway quote by one IT employee was this: “As full-time retiring baby boomers move on to their next chapter, the makeup of our organization will consist more of young and non-traditional workers, such as part-time workers or contractors,” said Steiner in the video.
What Steiner didn’t say in the employee broadcast is that some of the baby boomers moving “on to the next chapter” are being pushed out the door.
“Obviously not all of us are ‘retiring’ — a bunch of us are being thrown under the bus,” said one older employee, who requested anonymity. Employees contacted say many older workers are affected by the outsourcing decision, although they had no numbers.
Employees have known for several months that HCSC was moving work offshore. But until last month, they didn’t know their individual fates.
HCSC is defending the layoffs, scheduled in the first two quarters of next year. HCSC operates Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans in Illinois, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. It has 22,000 employees.
In the past year, the number of jobs held by recent immigrants (legal or otherwise) has increased more than five times faster than American-born workers. At rapid speed, companies are laying off American citizens and shipping jobs overseas — sometimes requiring American workers to train their foreign low-wage replacements before getting the axe.
Since late-2007, the number of jobs held by American-born workers has declined by 1.5 million, but jobs held by immigrants (legal or otherwise) are up by 2 million. Immigration has a downward pressure on wages for struggling minorities, especially high school dropouts. Expanded immigration also negatively affects the wages of skilled technicians and mid-level computer workers.
Hillary privately shares the views of her mega-donors, such as technology moguls who want expanded issuances of H-1B visas and green cards. They ultimately want completely open borders.
Infosys management routinely disparaged Americans, including Mrs. Awasthi, as not having “family values,” and stated that layoffs in America are good because the jobs will be outsourced.
Infosys management ridiculed Mrs. Awasthi for celebrating the American holiday of Thanksgiving, telling her that she should not celebrate Thanksgiving because she is Indian, and that therefore she must work on Thanksgiving Day.
Infosys management ridiculed Mrs. Awasthiâ€™s children for celebrating Thanksgiving, and called them “ABCD” short for “American-Born Confused Desi,” and “IBCD” short for “Indian-Born Confused Desi,” insulting terms used to criticize people of Indian ancestry who are Americanized.
Infosys management ridiculed Mrs. Awasthi for celebrating Christmas, saying that “we” do not celebrate Christmas, and that she should not celebrate Christmas. Infosys management repeatedly discussed the quality of Mrs. Awasthi`s work by explicitly commenting on their expectations for “a woman your age.”
We have this thing called EEOC here in America.
It guarantees people equal opportunity
We both know you do not practice equal opportunity here in America.
That is your achilles heel.
Sooner or later they are going to grow some balls like the FBI did.
And they are going to start forcing you to hire Americans in America or quit doing business in America.
The Americans Displaced by parasites like your company raping and pillaging our country are going to see to that.
