TCS

It is common knowledge that US companies often choose Indian developers because they offer economic benefits. Due to a shortage of skilled developers locally, hiring them in the US becomes costly.

Indian employees are loyal, hard-working, submissive, and also very cheap to hire when compared to native Americans.

Recently, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a major Indian outsourcing company, faced allegations from American workers. They claim TCS fired them abruptly and replaced them with Indian workers on H1-B visas.

The former employees, ranging from their 40s to 60s and of diverse backgrounds, filed complaints against TCS. They argue that TCS discriminated against them based on age and race, favoring Indian workers.

TCS denies these allegations, asserting its commitment to equal opportunity.

The complaints raise concerns about the use of H1-B visas by Indian IT firms. These visas, meant for skilled foreign workers, have sparked worries about American job displacement.

Unlike outsourcers like TCS, big US tech firms like Google and Microsoft attract high-wage staff with less criticism when using these visas.

TCS allegedly terminated experienced American workers despite positive performance reviews. Some claim their work was given to younger, less-experienced Indian workers on H1-B visas.
