Just got the following email. I get lobbied constantly by pro H-1B companies. These companies are taking American jobs away from Americans. They are powerfull and hard to stop.

This is the type of email I get weekly....

We need your voice. 
 Attend NACCB Lobby Day on Capitol Hill
 April 16-18, 2008

Dear Mike,

 

You may, or may not be aware, that the National Association of Computer Consultant Businesses (NACCB) has been actively engaged in defending the IT staffing industry's access to the H-1B program.  The recent proposal by Senator Richard Durbin, the Majority Whip (a senior leadership position), would prohibit placement of H-1Bs on an outsourced basis (i.e. IT Staffing), while other types of businesses would continue to have free access to this candidate pool.  In other words, the legislation specifically discriminates against the IT staffing business model (your business).

 

While the proposal, if enacted, would be devastating to IT staffing companies that rely on H-1Bs, even if you don't place any H-1Bs, efforts to restrict only our industry's access to a program is very troubling.  What other types of restrictions will be imposed on our industry in the future?

 

If you are concerned about the potential restrictions that may be imposed on your business, I invite you to join NACCB today.  If you join by Tuesday April 7,we will pay your registration fee to attend NACCB's 2008 Lobby Day program.

 

In advance of Lobby Day, we will arrange your schedule of appointments and completely prepare you for your meetings with elected officials and their staff.  As an added bonus, this year we have partnered with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce America's Small Business Summit to bring you a phenomenal line-up of speakers.  Please click here for the agenda.

Please join fellow owners and executives of IT Services firms by becoming a part of NACCB today. To learn more about Lobby Day and joining our efforts, please contact Joy Juwaynat today at 703-838-2050 x100 or by email juwaynat@naccb.org.I hope to see you at Lobby Day.Regards,

Mark B. Roberts, CEO, NACCB

I just found out that last year after I was terminated for "Budgetary reasons" I was immediately replace with an H1b Worker.  I was a Paratransit Engineer for Outreach and Escort in San Jose California. On top of that one of my friends was part of the conspiracy as he is from Canada on a H1b Visa. It really is a shameful thing that they have done. We let them do it to us.
