OUTSOURCING AMERICAN JOBS destroys Middle Class Americans. Sending AMERICAN JOBS to other nations destroys American families, communities and working people. OFFSHORE OUTSOURCING is not fair to AMERICAN WORKERS or GOOD for the United States. FREE TRADE undermines American living standards, the U.S. economy and U.S. national security. Outsourcing American jobs is legal because politicians like Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton choose corporate elites over America and average Americans.
Is Harris Miller who you want for your US Senator?
Consider his stand on the following issues:
EXPORTING U.S. JOBS - His organization, the Information Technology Association of America (ITAA), has been one of the loudest cheerleaders in support of the offshore outsourcing of American jobs.
LABOR LAW - The ITAA has supported business led efforts to eliminate overtime protections for U.S. workers.
GUEST WORKERS - The ITAA is the lead lobby urging Congress to allow in hundreds of thousands professional guest worker under the H-1B visa program that allow foreign workers to come in a take American jobs from highly skilled workers here in the U.S.
PRIVITIZATION - Under Miller, the ITAA has opposed efforts by labor?s congressional allies to prevent the privatization of federal jobs.
STATE FUNDING OF VITAL SERVICES - ITAA supports making permanent the temporary congressional ban prohibiting the states from applying state sales taxes to commodity sales over the internet.
I'm a software engineer, an Information Technology worker, opposed to the replacement of American workers with low-wage foreign workers and offshore outsourcing middle class American jobs. I believe that most corporate, academic and political "leaders" are short-sighted, self-interested and indifferent to the general welfare of all Americans. This failure of national leadership is evident in the declining employment opportunities, living standards, savings, and real income of most Americans.
