I’ve noticed a lot of people looking for that page, so I have decided to recreate it.
Here is the story.
I founded Keep America At Work in 2007
I’ve been working a lot of hours for free since then and I agreed to pay myself a reasonable salary starting at $15 per hour in 2007 with a dollar per year increase every year.
As of now, this is what I am owed in back wages.
I really don’t want to sell it as these stories need to be told, but I do need money to take it to the next level and even put a roof over my head, so while I would love to find somebody that is willing to invest that much in Keep America At Work, I would sell it if offered cash as I need money to take my work to the next level.
If you have that money, I can be reached at email@example.com
H1B Reform is a great start but we need reform of the other visas as well. We need to stop the offshoring of the jobs and the data. If there is H1B reform only, the companies will continue to use the other visas to continue the business model and they will pay managers of the American companies to go to India, Mexico, and other foreign countries to do direct training overseas. This is already done to some degree. The end game will continue and the goal of the companies, to eliminate the jobs in America, will not be stopped.
To stop the offshoring of jobs, the solution is simple and important. We pass a law that prohibits Americans’ “private data” to be accessible outside the virtual borders of the USA. We define “private data” as broad or narrow as we choose. If the private data must stay in the USA, then most of the jobs offshored will no longer be possible to do overseas. Without the data, the jobs cannot be done. The jobs that require private data immediately come back to the USA. Also, if a company wants to compete for American business which requires private data, they have to open offices in the USA and hire workers in the USA. This will actually bring more jobs to the USA because we, as a matter of all practicality, are amazing consumers!!!!!
I agree with H1B Reform. I merely believe it is not enough. It does not fix the problem and it should not be the only plan for change.
“We have to accelerate hiring of locals if they are available, and start recruiting freshers from universities there,” said Infosys’ Rao, noting a shift from the traditional model of recruiting mainly experienced people in the U.S.
After reading the following line Pravin, the Displaced American says you can go straight to hell just like our ancestors foes did during the Battle of the Alamo.
“Now we have to get into a model where we will recruit freshers, train them and gradually deploy them, and this will increase our costs,” he said, noting Infosys typically recruits 500-700 people each quarter in the US and Europe, around 80 percent of whom are locals.
Let me show you why Pravin and Infosys should be banned from every country in our World
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.”
