Dear Sacramento Bee,

For two years Sacramento Bee Executive Editor and Senior Vice President Rick Rodriquez has declined to respond to my letters regarding bogus job ads in the Sacramento Bee. He did find time, however, to personally sponsor an LCA for an H-1b visa for a "Technical Writer.

Is this why Rick lacks the integrity to respond to my concerns? Rick, have you run the fake job ads for the "Technical Writer" yet - to prove that there are "no qualified Technical Writers available in the U.S."? If so, how many resumes of U.S. workers did you discard in the process? Would the Bee have been forced to relocate overseas if it could not get this H-1b worker - as H-1b proponents claim?

The Bee also found time to run an Editorial in support of "company sponsorship of greencards" that are the cause of fake job ads.

For the past two weeks I have alerted you that Verifone and Hewlett-Packard were running fraudulent help wanted ads. No one from the Sacramento Bee has even acknowledged my concerns. Instead we see the same fraudulent ads continuing to run - plus a new entry by Infinite Solutions - whose LCAs are here.

Indeed, the bulk of the Computer Help Wanted that your publication is running appear to be shams:

These ads are reproduced for the purposes of criticism, comment, and education of the public, legislators,
and media, in accordance with Title17 U.S.C. Section 107.

SIGNS OF PERM JOB ADS THAT DON'T REPRESENT JOB OPENINGS

I am awaiting the Bee's position on running help wanted ads that do not represent bona-fide intents to hire, and will continue to alert you to the fraudulent ads that you are running in your publication.

Sincerely,

Mr. Kim Berry kim@programmersguild.org
