ACSA announces it is organizing a nation wide
boycott against companies off-shoring its members' jobs:
Hundreds of thousands of our peers are out of a job,
lurking at the library or collecting unemployment. Approximately
13,000 more are losing their jobs per week, as Chase Manhattan /
Citibank dominated Corporate America blindly seeks shelter behind
technology workers who earn $5000 per year in India and other areas of
the world where the exchange rate and lower cost of living standards and
lack of regulations has made it possible for them to do so.
Meanwhile, American National Security is totally jeopardized, America's
greatest single global advantage, it's technological prowess, is slowly
eroding, even Colleges aren't recommending Computers as a degree
anymore, since jobs are gone, all because the five leading Billionaires
who run this country, all involved in the Oil and Banking Business, are
too old and too dim witted to realize they are SINKING AMERICA FOR GOOD!
(Or maybe that's their intent... they were behind the instigation for
global terrorism, the many wars and the rise of Adolph Hitler.
what are these self-defined American Aristocracy up to now?)

An Association spokesperson indicated that it had identified several key areas that justified the movement to halt purchases of products and services from companies who farm back office functions to India, Mexico, Canada and the Far East. The boycott was called for not only the computer industry, but extended to all American industries using offshore labor to increase profits at the expense of American employment including the Credit Card Industry, the Internet Industries, eTailers, and anyone else. The Association indicated that foreign firms unaffiliated in any manner with American companies were excluded from the boycott. The Association indicated the following principal consequences of off-shoring simply to save some salary expense as "objectionable" and "legally inappropriate" towards American workers, in addition:
ACSA indicated it was responding to numerous complaints against AOL, Krell, MICROSOFT, IBM, and others employing foreign personnel to increase earnings against it's technological and help desk needs.
A spokesperson indicated:
"Since, however, Congress is not listening to the People much these days, we are organizing a global boycott of all companies guilty of these abuses. Such will not only include refusal to purchase the products and/or services of any such company who has moved any significant labor component outside of the USA, but will also extend to the owners of said companies, a refusal to do business with them on a broad spectrum basis. If they want to work without American labor in their technological and help desk pools, then they can work WITHOUT AMERICAN CUSTOMERS in their revenue stream. Period."
ACSA, which has 9.5 million members in North America alone, indicated it was also going to approach key unions, trade associations, government agencies, and wholly domestically situated companies for alliances around the staunch notion that 'If you outsource our jobs, don't expect to sell it in America!'.
"It's about time for the shabby deception being engaged in by these wealthy companies seeking to line their pockets with even more profits, while claiming poverty to the Internal Revenue Service, to be brought to task. America and it's people have been victimized from within, the Robber Barons have descended upon our workforce, raped it, and having done so, gone off to other countries to do likewise while simply raising a middle finger to the upper middle, middle and lower classes here. It's a pathetic excuse for profiteering, it's wrong and it represents an attack on the class structure of America by one key segment it's business leaders: those allied with our energy industries. They ought to be punished by prosecutors for doing so. In the meanwhile, it doesn't mean we need to buy their products" stated the Association.
Noting the need for a "progressive disengagement with
offshore labor in the manufacturing trades by the building of efficient
manufacturing infrastructures in America" the Association indicated
American workers were going to have to "band together into cooperative
programs" in order to afford "health services, leverage social security,
and other commonly available compensation" ordinarily afforded every
