The Great Disney IT Worker Screw Job, cont.

More today about the Disney IT workers who lost their jobs to foreign nationals imported by Disney to take their jobs. (See the previous two posts.) Today two of the workers had their day in court. The result was predictable.

Orlando judge tosses Disney IT outsourcing lawsuit 
Walt Disney World and two outsourcing contractors have won dismissal of lawsuits filed by former IT workers.

The lawsuits, filed in January, alleged that the Disney employees were the victim of a racketeering scheme to terminate them and replace them with immigrant, outsourced workers through the federal H-1B Visa program. Adding insult to injury, the workers were also forced to train their replacements or they would lose severance benefits.

U.S. District Judge Gregory Presnell ordered the suits dismissed Thursday.
Presnell ruled that the former Disney employees, Leo Perrero and Dena Moore, were off-base in their accusations that Disney and outsourcing firms HCL Inc. and Cognizant Technologies made false statements on certifications for the Visa program.

The H-1B program requires employers to state whether current employees would be "adversely affected" when a company hires foreign workers through the program.
Perrero and Moore argued in court that their working conditions at Disney were adversely affected, because they were forced to train people who would take their jobs, for lower pay.

According to the court record, however, HCL stated that none [of] its own employees would be adversely affected.

In the judge's dismissal of the cases, he states that HCL's statements weren't false, and would only have been false if HCL's own workers were adversely affected by the Visa program.
A few things to point out. First, note what I highlighted. What Disney did is TECHNICALLY legal because they didn't do this themselves, they hired outsourcing firms. Of course, the logic is similar to the person who hires a hitman to kill someone and then claims they had nothing to do with it, but whatevs, right?

Second, the outsourcing firms, as well as Disney, are utter scumbags, of the type that use human trafficking for personal gain. They're ruined those IT workers (Disney will have put a flag on them, making it very hard to get hired by any company in Orlando), all so that people like Iger can get another point on their goddamned stock options. They're no better than the people the OPD are currently looking for for the trafficking and murder of a 14 year-old girl here in town.

Third, the judge is a Bill Clinton appointee, so the "the meaning of 'is' is" reasoning is perfectly understandable. He's no better than the people at Disney, HCL & Cognizant. He's not worried about HIS job getting outsourced!

Fourth, Bill's wife is running for President. Rather than ask her about this kind of thing, which is the only reason Trump has gotten this far, the media is going after Trump for calling some rapper most of us have never heard of a "racial slur" that every Democrat in the country has used publicly to describe Clarence Thomas for decades.

But we can infer a few things. Hillary has stated that she wants a borderless world, and wants the free movement of people into the United States, with no restrictions. She hasn't said this publicly, but thanks to Wikileaks we know she has told it to various muckity-mucks who have paid her $250,000 and more for 20 minute speeches. We can believe she means it, because she's made a shit-ton of money off of the idea. Hillary has also stated that she thinks one quarter of the US population belongs in a "basket of deplorables" - a much nastier turn of phrase than any she would apply to any terrorist who ever killed an American. Any Islamic terrorist, I mean. Between the "basket of deplorables" comment and her "why aren't I winning by 50 points" comment, we can work out who she means, and it's basically white men who aren't gay, trannies, or government workers who do NOT carry guns. (She hates the military and police just as much as any Black Lives Matter fan. No, that's not fair. She doesn't hate them so much as she despises them.)

She hates straight white men, probably because her husband is a straight white man and has treated her worse than toilet paper for decades. (Toilet paper only gets used once and then gets disposed of. Hillary gets used over and over again, and worse than any piece of toilet paper.) At a guess she hates her dad, too. Her dad either didn't warn her about Bill, or worse, he did warn her about Bill and was right, so she'll blame him for her lack of judgement either way. The rest of us get to bear that burden, though.

So Hillary hates the straight white male American worker, and wants to fuck us in the ass as much as possible. Another four years of Barry is what we're going to get, and another four years of W., and another four years of Bubba. Hillary, though, stands to get richer. Bill will get a million dollars to speak five minutes to people like Bob Iger, and who knows how much Chelsea and her toady little husband will rake in. No one in the media will care, because the media hates American workers too, especially if they're straight white men. And they didn't raise a ruckus when the Clintons did it while she was Secretary of State, either, or after it was revealed that she had done so.

Our days appear to be numbered. But I'm guessing before it's all over there will be Hell to pay. And the people that voted for this will be held accountable in blood. The time for a National Razor Party fast approaches.
