+ - How US tech firms place job ads no-one will apply->

Submitted by m3x
m3x (1114829) writes "So they can hire cheap foreign workers. US Americans are expensive. They eat more food, use more petrol and create more greenhouse gas than the rest of us. So when they go to work they need a hefty salary. Not so Indians or Chinese, or Filipinos. Or Cubans or Iraqis come to that. You can get three or four of most of these for what you might have to pay an American. This is why tech firms are keen to ship workers into the States to get them to work for them, rather than some equally-qualified but expensive hamburger-muncher from down the road. But immigration laws pertaining to the hiring of foreign workers in the States are tight. And firms have to prove that they can't find anyone in their back yard to do the jobs they need to fill, before casting their gaze abroad. This is why U.S. firms hire consultants to publish classified job ads in local U.S. papers, with goal of not finding any applicants. At least that's what a report on the Information Clearing House" alleges. Here, you'll find a nice little video in which immigration attorneys from a firm, Cohen & Grigsby, explain how they help employers post job ads that no-one will apply for so that the firms can then use these in evidence when helping bring in workers from abroad. "Microsoft, Oracle, Hewlett-Packard, and thousands of other companies are running fake ads in Sunday newspapers across the country each week," it claims."

+ - Google's e-mail for universities->

Submitted by m3x
m3x (1114829) writes "Google is expanding its empire into universities — with entire campus e-mail networks switching over to using Google's e-mail service. This will give the internet company a "relationship for life" with students — who can carry on using these e-mail addresses after graduating. Trinity College Dublin has switched to Google's e-mail — with other universities considering such a switch. Google is also offering students online tools to use in their coursework."
