Clinton may have labor troubles
by UPI

WASHINGTON -- U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., may be on a collision course with organized labor over the issue of outsourcing of U.S. jobs and temporary visas.

The front-runner for the Democratic Party's 2008 presidential nomination has been wooing wealthy Indian-Americans who are interested in protecting outsourcing laws and expanding access to worker visas, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.

Four years ago Clinton announced that the Indian giant Tata Consultancy Services was opening a software development office in Buffalo, N.Y., and forming a research partnership with a local university.

The firm had said it was planning to hire 200 people but only about 10 work there while the research deal with the state university has failed to come to fruition following three attempts to win government grants, the Times said.

"It's just two-faced," John Miano, founder of the Programmers Guild, told the Times. "We see her undermining U.S. workers and helping the off-shoring business and then she comes back to the U.S. and says, 'I'm concerned about your pain.'"
