Indian Discrimination

The Amazing Fact That 99.7% of Tata Consulting is Indian

Executive Summary

  • Tata consulting has an amazing percentage of its company staffed by Indians, even though it has a large business in the US.
  • How the actual percentage of Indian workers is hidden.

Introduction

The Indian outsourcing firms (or even IBM) never brag about what percentage of their company is comprised of Indians. Recent lawsuits against Tata Consulting has brought forward how extraordinarily Indian the company is, and how they must discriminate against domestic US workers in their US operations to maintain such a high percentage of Indians in the company.

Tata’s hiring record as it relates to H1-B reveals indisputable bias. Data shows that Tata is the number one India based offshore outsourcing IT services provider, and a whopping 99.7 percent of its employees are Indians.

On its face, the conclusion is obvious: Tata opts to hire Indian nationals above all others. In fact, a compelling argument can be made that Tata discriminates against all potential employees except South Asians. – Patch 

For these Indian outsourcing firms, they operate in the US, but they work almost entirely off of Indian labor. Even in the US, Tata only rises to 95% Indian as is covered in the following quotation.

As we told you, Tata, whose US-based workforce is 95 percent South Asian. – Sold Out

The US is only a few percentage points India, but the entirety of its US-based employment is Indian? Is this the diversity that US workers are supposed to support?

This is explained in the following quotation.

Infosys whistleblower Jay Palmer’s former colleague Brenda Koehler blew her own whistle on the “systematic, company-wide discrimination” she witnessed at the company. In August 2013, she filed a class action lawsuit detailing how managers at the Indian outsourcing giant directly discriminated against non South Asian (Indian) employees, abused H1-B to bring workers of South Asian descent into the country rather than hiring qualified individuals already in the US and abused the B-1 short term business visa system.

Apple, which claims to promote ethnic and racial “diversity” as a way to inspire “creativity and innovation,” employed 509 contract workers from Infosys at its Cupertino, CA, headquarters in 2013. Computerworld reported that the government records show “499 are listed as Asian” — that’s a whopping 98 percent — “with the remaining 10 indentified as white or black.”

The complaint (by Steven Heldt) outlined the many methods by which Tata allegedly achieved its discriminatory goals, foremost of which was the use of the temporary guest worker visa to hire mostly, if not exclusively, South Asians. When Heldt objected to his treatment, he says Tata human resources criticized Americna for trying to “exercise their rights.” – Sold Out

Conclusion

For some reason, Indian companies do not seem to be held accountable for anti-discrimination laws in the US. For this reason, Indian companies, that specialize in importing H1-B labor and displacing US workers can keep their employment almost entirely Indian in the US and not face legal repercussions.
