I don’t think that was Walts’ vision. Then again…

The loopholes in this law need to be fixed. This is ridiculous.

Information technology workers at Southern California Edison (SCE) are being laid off and replaced by workers from India. Some employees are training their H-1B visa holding replacements, and many have already lost their jobs.

Replacing U.S. workers with H-1B workers violates the spirit if not the letter of the law. Hira pointed out that as a part of the application process to obtain H-1B approval from the Labor Department, an employer is required to attest to the following: “Working Conditions: The employer attests that H-1B, H-1B1 or E-3 foreign workers in the named occupation will not adversely affect the working conditions of workers similarly employed.” This statement is in Form 9035CP of the LCA.

re: #2 blueraven

When these events happen, what has to happen is the same thing that happened when the Market Basket situation blew up. Those who are being replaced need to walk out immediately and broadcast to the press what has happened to them. That way, the corporation is stuck having to not only to deal with damage control, but to deal with current day-to-day operations.

This happened to me in the 1990s at AT&T. AT&T even provided housing for the H-1Bers, packing them 10 or so per house.

That won’t happen, though. That sort of walk-out carries too much risk for most white collar people: Those engaging in it would likely be fired for cause, which means no severance, in most states no unemployment (because it would likely be classed as a ‘wildcat strike’, and those are generally not protected by labor law), and a massive black mark on the resume. Few employers will offer a job to someone seem as a major troublemaker, so few IT people will take such a risk.
