  • Outsourcing of Customer Service to India leads to theft - Offshore bank worker arrested in fraud - (link fixed)
    Police in Bangalore, India's technology hub, have arrested an employee at a data processing center for allegedly siphoning $420,000 from the accounts of 20 customers of United Kingdom-based bank HSBC, news reports said Wednesday. The arrest was made after HSBC Electronic Data Processing India Ltd. -- which handles the bank's back-office work from outsourcing centers in India -- filed a complaint saying one of its employees accessed "personal, security and debit card information" and passed them on to associates involved in the fraud. This is the second major bank fraud reported by an outsourcing center in India in less than a year.

 
  • ForeclosureS.com: Western Mortgage Defaults on the Rise
    She went on to say that things were even worse in Michigan where GM and Ford have made massive job cuts. "Michigan experienced 22,742 mortgage default filings in the first quarter of the year," said Ms. McGee. She added, "The Midwest never got caught up in the feeding frenzy that skyrocketed prices in the overheated coastal markets. We suspect that job loss is the major factor for foreclosure increase in the region."  

 
  • H1-B Visa Foreign IT Workers and the Immigration Bill
    IT Unemployment Is About To Take A BIG Jump UP!

    It is no accident that China and India graduate so many more engineers than the U.S. The governments of China and India plan closely with industry and universities to encourage their citizens to obtain four year and advanced college degrees in math and the sciences.
    In contrast, today, the U.S government appears to be working closely with industry and universities to discourage their citizens from obtaining four year and advanced college degrees in math and the sciences. State and Federal governments are slashing support for both universities and students. U.S. students must increasingly borrow large sums of money to finance their college educations.

    While government and industry are taking away college access with one hand, they are just as busy taking away technolgy jobs with the other hand by giving giving those jobs to foreign workers.

    From the very beginning of the Bush Administration U.S. companies have lobbied Congress and President Bush extensively to obtain greater freedom in hiring cheaper foreign technology workers via H-1B and L1 visa programs. Concurrently, U.S. companies have also been busy relocating many technology jobs offshore to India and China where salaries are a fraction of U.S.-base technology salaries and where there is no health insurance cost – because the governments of those countries provide social health care for their citizens.

  • Unions worked up over illegal scab labor
    AFL-CIO President John Sweeney says guest-worker programs supported by top Democrats such as Sens. Edward M. Kennedy and Dianne Feinstein are a "bad idea and harm all workers."  "The corporate strategy is export good American jobs and then import cheap labor," he said. "That might be good corporate strategy, but in my judgment, it's not good for the American worker."

    Delphi to cut jobs, try to void contracts
Delphi (DPHIQ) plans to cut as many as 8,500 salaried workers, or 25% of its white-collar workforce globally, and is seeking to keep just eight of its plants as part of a massive restructuring of the automotive parts supplier. Delphi also said that it will file motions with a U.S. bankruptcy court in New York on Friday to void its labor contracts, a step that its unions including the UAW have said could trigger a strike.

  • 'Made in Mexico' Uniforms Miff Border Cops
    WASHINGTON -- The labels inside the U.S. Border Patrol uniforms have been making many federal agents feel uneasy. It's not the fit or feel of the olive-green shirts and pants, but what their labels read: "Made in Mexico." "It's embarrassing to be protecting the U.S.-Mexico border and be wearing a uniform made in Mexico," says T.J. Bonner, president of the National Border Patrol Council, a 6,500-member union.

  • 120 Suspected Illegal Mostly Mexican Migrants Arrested at Wal-Mart Construction Site
    At least 120 illegal immigrants, most of them from Mexico, were detained, Schuylkill County Sheriff Frank McAndrew said. He said he began investigating the site and contacted federal officials after getting complaints from local tradespeople. "You've got a situation here where illegal immigrants are coming into Schuylkill County and taking (local union workers') jobs for eight bucks an hour. They are working for poverty wages, and creating unemployment because our skilled tradesmen are out of work," McAndrew said.

  • OUR FOREIGN TRADE DEFICIT IS $500 BILLION PER YEAR By Senator Mark Dayton
    Those (NAFTA) imbalances, however, pale in comparison to our trade deficit with China. In 2002, we exported $22 billion worth of goods to China; we imported $125 billion worth of goods, mostly manufactured products, from China! This imbalance has been highly beneficial for China. These investments helped fund a 9.1 percent growth in China's economy last year. There was no recession over there! Presently, there are over 40,000 U.S. business ventures in China. No one has counted how many of them led to the closing of a manufacturing plant in the United States. What we do know is that over 2,600,000 manufacturing jobs have been lost in this country during the past three years.

 

    American Workers Betrayed By Congress - By Stephen Crockett
By a vote of 217 to 215, the Congress of the United States at the direction of the Bush Administration has betrayed all American workers. The Central American Free Trade Agreement will create unfair pressure to lower the wages of all American workers when the basic staples not likely to be influenced by the agreement are exploding in price. American companies will be under great pressure to move manufacturing operations outside the United States. Giant retailers of cheap imported products made by grossly underpaid and exploited Central American workers will profit. Companies like Wal-Mart will profit but not most American workers. American taxpayers along with American workers will suffer. - (reader link)  

    Breaking Monopoly Power - by Stephen Crockett
Since Ronald Reagan came to power, the anti-monopoly laws and regulations of the US government have been completely gutted. Under the disguise of deregulation, monopoly economic power has come to dominate most sectors of the American economy. Consumers, workers and our free democratic forms of government has all been made to suffer.

  • China-Mart Takes Over - By Paul Craig Roberts
    US corporations decided that the way to get rich was to destroy their American consumer base by closing their American factories, throwing their US employees out of work and hiring Chinese instead. What US corporations and the free trade economists overlook is that giving Americans’ jobs to foreigners raises foreign incomes and lowers American incomes. When credit cards and home equity lines are maxed out, there will be nothing to support the US consumer market. - (Svejk)

  • Idaho County Sues Over Illegal Immigrant Workers
    Robert VasquezBOISE, Idaho -- Faced with the costs of coping with illegal immigrants, one county is looking to the courts for help -- by filing a racketeering lawsuit against the businesses that hire these workers. The legal theory: that a pattern of immigration violations by employers is costing Canyon County millions for law enforcement, education and social services. "Their presence lowers the labor wage for American citizens and removes employment opportunities," county Commissioner Robert Vasquez, an ambitious politician who just started a bid for Congress, said of the illegal workers. "Certainly it uses tax dollars to provide them with educational services, medical care, unemployment compensation for those that are injured on the job. They are a drain on the taxpayers of Canyon County, the state of Idaho and the U.S. in general."

  • Chinese labor for oil drilling eyed in Colo.
    Canadian oil giant EnCana is considering bringing in Chinese companies to construct and operate drilling rigs in the Colorado Rockies, as the region struggles to keep up with demand and rising energy prices.  "I am totally against the Chinese government running the jobs in our country," said Rep. John Salazar, Colorado Democrat, whose district is most affected by drilling. "With the Chinese government getting involved, it's not even a competitive business model."  Mr. Salazar and other U.S. lawmakers already are concerned about the China National Offshore Oil Corp.'s interest in buying the U.S. oil and gas conglomerate Unocal Corp. - (Svejk)

 

 

    STOP CAFTA.com
"Please join our nationwide movement to STOP Congress from approving the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA).
Although the immediate threat posed by CAFTA is job losses, the most important reason to oppose CAFTA is that it would be a steppingstone to the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA).  Congressional approval of the FTAA would spell the end of U.S. Independence and our American way of life.
