WASHINGTON, Aug. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Coalition for the
Future American Worker has launched a national TV campaign and petition
drive aimed at stopping big business from giving American jobs to foreign
workers in this country. The group's TV ad shows an actual video recording
of a major law firm's seminar designed to coach corporate clients on how to
avoid hiring Americans. The ad draws attention to the common practice of
replacing American workers with foreign workers here at home throughout all
job levels and virtually all types of businesses. The campaign urges
Americans to sign an online petition that provides a list of common sense,
worker protection measures. The petitions will be presented to America's
leaders. The campaign launched Monday and is airing in markets across the
The campaign breaks as nearly 10 million Americans can't find a job, 27
million American jobs are currently occupied by foreign workers -- many
illegal -- interest rates are rising and the housing market is crashing.
"At a time when millions of Americans can't find a job and many are
losing their homes, our leaders are not standing up for the workers who are
the backbone of this nation," commented CFAW spokesman Dan Stein. "This ad
and the accompanying video clip show unequivocal proof that big business is
hiring expensive lawyers to show them how to avoid hiring American workers
here at home. It's a despicable practice that calls into question whether
these so- called corporate citizens have any moral compass at all. It's
time to stand up for hard working, tax paying Americans instead of foreign
workers and freeloaders, many of whom are here illegally in the first
The group's TV ad dramatizes the situation in a typical displaced
worker's home. With an infant crying in the background, a husband sits down
at the kitchen table to discuss his latest job interview with his wife. The
wife reads her husband's face and asks, "You didn't get the job, did you?"
The husband comments that the company he interviewed with only hired the
foreign workers. Then the spot breaks away to actual footage of a
Pittsburgh law firm teaching its corporate clients how to avoid hiring
American workers without consequences. The attorney in the video confirms
for his corporate audience, "the goal is not to find an interested or
qualified US worker."
The campaign began airing Monday morning of this week and by noon the
same day more than 40,000 people had already responded by signing the
petitions. The group will announce later this week when the petitions will
be presented and to whom.
