About

I am a progressive and Democrat who sees a serious need to speak to more Americans if we are to rise to Ben Franklin’s challenge, after a passerby asked him what form of government the Founders had chosen: “A republic, madam, if you can keep it.” The same challenges applies to our surroundings: a wonderful environment, if we can keep it. My career in higher education was mainly in the areas of international studies, foreign languages, and student advising, most recently at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, from which I retired in 2006. I have lived in West Chester since 1986.

    I have filed a petition with the White House to:
    “Bring back US jobs that companies have been allowed to outsource to foreign countries”
    This is a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
    UNLAWFUL EMPLOYMENT PRACTICES
    SEC. 2000e-2. [Section 703]
    (a) Employer practices
    It shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer –
    (1) …to discharge any individual, or…discriminate… with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions…of employment, because of such individual’s race…or national origin
    In other words, companies cannot fire US workers and hire foreigners in other countries instead, for any reason.
    Since companies are firing US workers and replacing them with non-US workers in other countries based on paying cheaper salaries, they are breaking the above law.
    This needs to be (retroactively) enforced by the Attorney General.
    Please show your support and sign the petition:

    Please pass this on to as many friends, family, & coworkers as you can.
