U.S. Tech Workers Launches BART Ads

Starting on St. Patrick’s Day weekend, we launched our ad that encouraged Silicon Valley and other employers to hire U.S. tech workers.

The ads appeared on BART trains and in two stations. They urged Congress to “fix” the H-1B visa program which has been a major source of U.S. tech worker displacement since 1990, and also reminded American tech workers that employers consider them “expensive, undeserving and expendable.”

The ads will run for roughly two weeks.  Although controversial, a quick read of the comments section of the print and broadcast attention garnered by the ads seems to indicate that tech workers in the Bay Area are supportive of the messaging.
