IMO, this should never have been an issue! These are American workers being displaced by foreign workers! How wrong is that??? I know it has been going on for a while because you cannot get a tech support person on the phone with any company anymore that is actually American but it should never have been allowed in the first place!

As Southern California Edison (SCE) began replacing its IT workers with foreign labor, several IT employees asked the U.S. government for help. They submitted an application for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), and explained why they believe trade played a role in their job loss.


The SCE workers noted that the utility "used a large percentage of foreign IT workers, at times over 50%," they wrote in their application for benefits.

"The use of foreign IT workers makes it much harder for American IT workers to find jobs in America, particularly those like the petitioners, who are all age 50+," the workers wrote.
