Tennessee Valley Authority Firing American Workers, Replacing With Cheaper H1B Labor

They’re firing the American workers for foreign replacements.

One of the major public utilities in the United States is firing hundreds of employees and replacing its IT workforce with contractors affiliated with some of the most egregious abusers of the H1B visa system. The Tennessee Valley Authority, which was founded in 1933 during the Great Depression as a means to provide federally subsidized electricity to the Tennessee Valley, was also intended to create new middle-class jobs in one of the hardest hit regions of the United States.

Today, the TVA is carrying out a firing plan to eliminate hundreds of IT and engineering jobs, announcing their plans to fire American workers and outsource their plans to notorious H1-B visa abusers such as  with a track record of replacing American jobs with cheap foreign labor, such as Accenture Federal Services and Capgemini.

More than a hundred positions within TVA were eliminated for outsourcing purposes in the fall. TVA’s leadership is known to be considering a plan to fire even more American workers for cheaper foreign replacements.

Longtime immigration hawk and Alabama Senate candidate Jeff Sessions also spoke at the rally, calling upon the TVA to reverse its initiative to outsource American jobs to cheap-labor subcontractors.

Sessions called out the TVA for engaging in the same anti-American cheap labor policies practiced throughout the national IT industry, which frequently involve the firing of American workers and their replacement with cheaper foreign workers who are essentially bonded to their employers through the regulations of the H1B visa.

So what I think the TVA people today are doing, the workers here today, they’re saying this is a danger to the TVA all of us and it highlights a flaw in our immigration system.

It didn’t escape the pro-American worker advocates protesting TVA’s outsourcing plans that the company was founded in great part to provide public services while creating middle-class jobs in the region, which spans from southwestern Virginia to northern Mississippi.

As Biden Eyes “Transition Away” From Fossil Fuels, Pennsylvania is Second-Largest Natural Gas Producer in US

Destroying Pennsylvanian jobs.

Published

Joe Biden’s announcement that he plans on a “transition away” from the use of fossil fuels as an energy source may not go over smoothly with the people of Pennsylvania- a state that has scored as the second largest producer of natural gas anywhere in the country.

Joe Biden admitted at the Thursday debate that he plans to “transition away from the oil industry,” citing pollution.

The United States Energy Information Administration identifies a considerable 20.0% of national natural gas production as coming from the state of Pennsylvania, making it the second biggest producer behind Texas. The state punches well above its weight in doing so, producing almost as much natural gas as Texas despite having less than half of its population.

Biden has sought to dismiss his track record of support for the banning of fracking oil extraction, employing a similar thinly veiled rhetorical trick by stating he’d only decline to allow any new fracking.

The energy industry continues to be a source of gainful, family-supporting employment for over ten million Americans. It’s not an option to “transition away” from the use of fossil fuels in the immediate future- a fact Biden tacitly admitted to after the debate suggestion, perhaps indicating that he realized the political folly of the statement.

A study from the American Petroleum Industry indicates that more than 322,000 Pennsylvanians are employed by the natural gas industry that Biden wants to transition away from.

Pennsylvania is shaping up as the most critical swing state in the election, and in nearly every plausible election night scenario the winner of the state’s 20 electoral votes secures the 270 needed to win the election.

Perhaps Joe Biden should transition away from national politics, and leave policy answers relating to carbon emissions, the environment and a strong energy industry to those more considerate of the role of the natural gas industry in Pennsylvania and around the country.
