Erin Green said he and black employee and other white employees were not given raises and promotions because they were not Indian (from India). That is what Erin claims in a suit that was filed.


Erin Green, a former supervisor at Infosys, filed suit this week in the Eastern District of Texas in Sherman, alleging that he and black and white staffers on his team were denied raises and promotions, and that other "non-South Asian" workers were berated by South Asian company officials.

Green, of Frisco, is white and rose to the rank of "head of global immigration" while working in the company's Plano office. He was terminated in June of 2016, ostensibly for violating Infosys' "code of conduct by using his work computer for personal use a number of years earlier."

Erin Green was fired for using a company computer for personal use a "number of years ago". Pretty weak reason for a termination.


There is a huge number of South Asian and Indian workers in the work force, this could be interesting. Especially with the weak reason for firing Erin.


"Infosys maintains roughly 200,000 employees working in the United States," Green's suit said. While less than 5 percent of the U. S. population is of the South Asian race and national origin, roughly 93 percent to 94 percent of Infosys's United States workforce "is of the South Asian national origin, (primarily Indian)."

"This disproportionately South Asian and Indian workforce, by race and national origin, is a result of Infosys's intentional employment discrimination against individuals who are not South Asian, including discrimination in the hiring, promotion, compensation and termination of individuals," the suit said.

Infosys and other tech oriented body shops exploit h1-b hiring...

Greedy company.

NO surprise. Probably can offer them LESS starting pay for the SAME or BETTER quality work.

Profits over PEOPLE is the new American motto.

It is clear that many of these companies are exploiting h1-bs They are high paying jobs, but they don't pay as well as they would American workers.

However, you can't just blame companies solely. Everyone from customers to the CEO is responsible. Companies have to remain competitive. Consumers put a lot of pressure on companies to lower costs. As such, a company has to respond in kind to ensure that they can offer lower prices to consumers, but also remain profitable. This is what ultimately drives a lot of these decisions...

So as Michael Jackson said, look at the man in the mirror... sometimes your own shopping habits are why companies behave the way they do.

You can hold THIS company solely responsible. Are they following federal and state pay guidelines? If so, and I'm assuming they have to and are, are they offering positions to locals? If so and none are filling the positions then they are off the hook. If not, they are exploiting h1-bs. It's pretty cut and dried

Consumers/customers NEED lower costs because wages have STAGNATED.

BUYING POWER has stayed practically FLAT in this country.

Rising cost of LIVING + STAGNATED wages = demand for low, low Walmart prices!!!

You are missing my point...

Companies respond to pressure from consumers. Infosys largely is a tech body shop offering programming and other tech services to other corporations. Their clients are often also looking to save money, so they pressure Infosys to lower their prices for work. Infosys responds in kind by seeking to cut their operational costs hence hiring cheaper H1-Bs over american workers.

All businesses have to make decisions based on what their customers are willing to pay for their services. I'm not saying it is right or wrong, but that it simply just isn't because of "greedy corporations".

It's cyclical.

Low Pay = Less disposable income.

Less disposable income = DEMAND for lower prices.

Demand for low prices? = Cost-cutting and OUTSOURCING jobs to China.

Outsourcing to CHINA? = Fewer jobs.

Fewer jobs? = More POVERTY.

More poverty? = More DEMAND for lower prices.

It ALL comes back around on itself. The ONLY people not feeling this are the top earners.

The local none profit(beside the account in the caiman Islands) hospital monopoly in my neck of the woods is the same, they bring foreign doctors, give them top of the top housing cars and amenities to work for them.

I guess American doctors are not good enough.

Then when the local doctors go on private business the local monopoly hospital do everything they can to put them out of business.

First the tech companies sold to American that Americans were innovators and inventors, then they brought in foreign students to study in the US, then they took the training out of the US, then they sold the government that US didn't meet the demands of technicians, so then they brought in the foreign labor.

Their agenda can be traced if people really wants to know how the so call shortage of tech started in the US.

My brother is a computer engineer, he remembers how everything started, I remember when back in the late 70s IBM used to come to the high schools looking for students that were good in math and science and recruited them and trained them.

Back in those days the foreign demand wasn't even an issue.

Well said.


It is what is referred to as race to the bottom, and the US seems to be hell bent to prove we are great at it.

Exactly, and when you have a system that opens the door with immigration policies that either create legal means to undercut the native work force through H1-Bs that allow for a legal system of indenture or lax law enforcement that let businesses get away with hiring illegal workers under the table, that becomes an avenue for the business world to undercut their competition. And when one does it, there are very few good options left for the rest.

Seems like if you import workers you are interupting the free market.


If a company can't find the help you need you raise wages.

If you import help, you are indeed interrupting the market and of course the first company to do this will have a financial advantage over the competition. So the competition has to do something....Rinse repeat.

Actually our government has been sold to the highest bidder,
Corporations are just following suit.
This is why everyone's bosses in the US are foreigners.

Have you ever wondered how the Indian people come to take your jobs have all got degrees yet are thick as two short planks.Well let me just say Infosys has it's own "university" in Calcutta and churns out as many people with degrees as it wants.
Wait till they have learned your job then it's back to India, your job gone, and the system run from there.
They tried it in the UK with the banks transactions but they were that crap the banks forced them to return to the UK.
Notice the Indians, they only learn minimal operations per person, they can't multi-task and are lost if they have to think on their feet. But they're cheap, oh are they cheap.
You know the saying" pay peanuts and you get monkeys".
