CWA union exposes Harris Miller

The Communications Workers of America (CWA), "WashTech" union is asking some hard questions about Harris Miller in an email. Here's what WashTech said:

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.
