Folks, IT employment in the U.S. is down for the fourth consecutive month.
According to the National Association of Computer Consultant Businesses, IT employment continues to fall in the U.S., with 31,300 jobs disappearing in March 2009.
The loss of 31,000 IT jobs in March, amidst tough economic times for American families, comes on the heel of 56,000 IT jobs lost in December, 48,000 vanishing in January and 14,000 going poof in February.
Since November 2008, the IT sector in the U.S. has shed 150,000 jobs or 3.7%.
IT employment in the U.S. has declined 1.79% since March 2008.
Scrap H1B Job Killer
We’ve said this a million times on this blog. Scrap the H1B program and send the coolies back home to India.
It makes no sense to bring in the coolies from India and elsewhere when American IT workers are hurting.
Ask the Indian coolies in Chennai, Hyderabad and Bangalore whether they are willing for their jobs to be outsourced to Bangladesh or China.
Take our word – those hooligans will go on a rampage and torch buses and buildings and create mayhem in their cities.
The H1B program was meant to hire workers in times of labor scarcity.
But greedy American corporations have misused the H1B to cut costs and depress wages of American workers. This is unacceptable.
Call your Congressman and Senator today and ask them to put up a bill to pack the coolies home and scrap the H1B program.
