AFL-CIO: Labor Department NOT Doing Enough to Protect American Workers

John Miano has just finished his critique of the H-1b visa program. Ana Avendano of the AFL-CIO is speaking now. This hearing details part of the offshore outsourcing job loss catastrophe which Jim Webb has spoken out against in his calls for economic fairness. Offshore outsouricing and worker replacement under "guest worker" programs is an attack on the American middle class.

I read the Miano report of the complete lack of oversite by the Dept. of Labor. I have been passing it around to friends and family. They are all disgusted. Miano's report of hundreds and hundreds of online job postings that can be found on a daily basis that clearly violate the H1-B law was a real kick in the head as well.

According to Dr. Matloff 80% percent of American voters are against the H1-B and L1 visa programs when they are informed. It is only the media elites, corporations and the bought off Congress that support the programs.
