Reporter Lee Howard was recently recognized by the Connecticut Society of Professional Journalists for his reporting on H-1B visa abuse by the Pfizer Corporation. Howard is a reporter for the New London Day in Southern Connecticut, and Pfizer's corporate headquarters are in New York City with a large research and development office in New London.

Howard won the Theodore Driscoll Award for investigative reporting after his four-part series uncovered Pfizer's recent move to layoff hundreds of American contractors in order to outsource the jobs to cheaper foreign workers.

The panel of judges who issued the award said Howard "was able to break through corporate silence to learn how and why Pfizer was utilizing H-1B visas to bring foreign workers to Connecticut to be trained by and replace American IT employees."
