The last we heard, our fellow insurgents were getting threatening emails from a one Patrick Papalia, Esq. of the law firm Herten, Burstein, Sheridan, Cevasco, Bottinelli, Litt & Harz, LLC, who appears to be representing the Desi douchebags at notorious bodyshop Apex Technology Group:

Dear Sir/Madam:

Please provide me with the name of your lawyer and law firm. This is a serious matter and the false, tortious and defamatory statements you have made as to Apex will not go unaddressed. Any further unlawful action at this time by you will further expose you to punitive damages for your intentional and malicious conduct in any ensuing litigation.

Patrick Papalia, Esq.


Judging by his online profile, Patrick Papalia appears to be more suited for defending clients in the "sanitation" industry, if you know what I mean. 


But corrupt Desi bodyshops like Apex are not far removed from that industry, so they are a good source of income for folks like Mr. Papalia, Esq.


The admin at end1hb.com had a good response to Mr. Desi Doucebag Lawyer, and it revealed that many of Apex's clients got TARP funds.  Yep, this is how B of A, etc. get around TARP restrictions and hire slumdogs -- they go through bodyshops like Apex.  And WTF is the NBA doing hiring slumdogs?



We need to get to the bottom of this, people.  If you work at anyone of these firms mentioned in this email to Mr. Papalia, Esq., please provide us with some info on who is responsible for using contractors from Apex.  We want to make life hell for those collaborators:


Mr. Papalia,

Sorry, we are not some exploited visa workers that take your threats seriously.  Our organization knows that you are in the business of intimidating the H-1B workers who Apex has sponsored and abused by sending them phony legal threats.  And I have evidence that Apex threatens the families in India of visa workers who dare to expose the labor violations and visa fraud committed by Apex.

You are complicate in human trafficking and have now encountered an adversary that is more than happy to engage in a public battle over the practices of bodyshops like Apex and predatory law firms like yours.

Be prepared to account for your actions and the actions of your client in the court of public opinion.  We have contacted the media and groups like Programmer's Guild, WashTech, the Communications Workers Of America, Numbers USA, Bright Future Jobs and FAIR.

Together we are talking about tens of thousands of I.T. workers that can donate funds and resources to take on thugs like you and your illiterate client.  You and I both know that there are no "unlawful and disparaging publications" and your case has no merit.  The only thing we have ever published is a comment from another website.

But it is useful for our cause -- to expose the high-tech slave trade that you profit from and the bullying tactics of agencies like Apex that have helped displace millions of American tech workers.  And we have more information from other victims of Apex, and will decimate that when the time comes.

As for your client, you should counsel them not to pick a fight with well-funded groups who are not afraid of their tactics.  They picked this fight, not www.endh1b.com.  And because of that, our organization is preparing to share this entire dialogue with all the alleged "clients" of Apex.  Once we begin our protest, it is highly unlikely these companies will want to do business with a firm engaged in such sordid tactics:

"Yep, this is how B of A, etc. get around TARP restrictions and hire slumdogs -- they go through bodyshops like Apex" ---

Well this defeats the whole purpose of TARP regulations. Report it to news channel - CNN, Fox - Send letters to CEO's of all these companies, with cc to Senators in NJ, NY, President's office, Grassley, etc.. !! Let the whole world know what is happening here. Not hiring foreign labor was a pre-condition for receving tax payers TARP money??

I'm wondering if these people have valid visas like L1 or H1 OR outsourcing companies are abusing B1 tourist/business visas! Security departments of all companies should start checking visa status for non-employees who plan to spend more than 2 days on Company premises. Add this to the letter.

Mohan has alleged that his bosses made him run personal errands and humiliated him.

The nine Wipro employees named in the complaint are Keshav Kumar, Sreeranganathan, Ankur Chadha, Anuradha Raju, Ganesh Halapethi, Supriya Mahajan, Vikram Mirani, Sulekha Jagadish and Shalini Macaden.

contracts worth over $600 million, the Business Standard said on Friday.

The other vendors are Cognizant Solutions and UST Global, the newspaper said, citing an unidentified source close to the development. Initially the three vendors are expected to earn 2.5 billion to 3 billion rupees ($54 million-$65 million) each annually, which will rise as Wal-Mart increases outsourcing more work.

Infosys and Cognizant, which will provide application development and support, are expected to get a larger share of the contract, the paper said. UST will be responsible for testing these applications, it said.

"What is more important is that these three vendors have now got a ticket to be in the club of Wal-Mart's list of preferred vendors which will help them in growing this account in the long run," the paper quoted the source as saying.

"We do not comment on market speculation," a spokeswoman for Infosys told Reuters.

Wal-Mart's media relations director, John Simley, said in an emailed reply to the paper: "We have a large and growing business and productive relationship with many Indian companies. We do not comment on speculations about the nature of any business relationship."

A Cognizant spokesman also declined to comment, the paper said.

WASHINGTON: After months of lackluster response, US authorities have witnessed a sudden increase in demand for H-1B work visa, which is popular am
ong Indian professionals. Though the applications received so far are still over 6,000 short of the Congress-mandated cap of 65,000.

Latest figures released by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) show an increase in the number of people applying for H-1B visas in the last two months.

As a result of which, till November 27, the USCIS had received about 58,900 H-1B petitions. This is still over 6,000 short of the Congressionally-mandated cap of 65,000 H-1B visas in the general category.

The USCIS has approved sufficient H-1B petitions for aliens with advanced degrees to meet the exemption of 20,000 from the fiscal year 2010 cap.

According to the periodic figures released by USCIS, in the past two months more than 12,000 H-1B visas have been filed.

In the beginning of October, more than 18,000 H-1B visas were vacant.
