This is one of the most disgusting and egregious corporate acts I can think of.
Pfizer's outsourcing contract with Infosys Technologies and Satyam Computer Services means job losses for IT workers in Connecticut. Many U.S.-based contractors are complaining that they are being asked to train H-1B workers who will soon replace them.
Unfortunately we have heard this story repeatedly. Professionals have testified before Congress and multiple reports have witnessed this despicable treatment before throwing away U.S. workers.
Even worse, corporations intimidate and send fear into workers by withholding their severance, imply the worker will receive a bad job reference or the cruelest joke of maybe, just maybe they will be able to keep their job (which of course is a lie). The Day documents the psychological torture:
”It's a very, very stressful work environment. ... I haven't been able to sleep for weeks,” said one source.
”Morale on site is absolutely at the lowest of any time I've worked at the company,” said another source.
It's truly disgusting, Pfizer even released a memo calling this Procedure 117.
Ah, I see destroying U.S. workers is simply a procedure.
Sounds almost like the Final Solution of the Third Reich!
