Cognizant's client Molina Helathcare slammed for running �slumdog sweatshops'
Wednesday, 27th July 2011
Companies that hire Indians are �curry dens' and �slumdog sweatshops'. �Indiots' and their housewives �...masquerade as software testers� employed by their husband's contacts or in firms they work at!!�.
That is a glimpse of what some bloggers have to say in support of 18 ex-employees of US healthcare-services company, Molina Helathcare, a client of Cognizant Technology Solutions, who are alleged to have been replaced by H1B workers from India.
The 18 ex-employees have filed a lawsuit in a US court against Molina. They alleged that on January 14, a day after the US Department of Labor approved Cognizant's application for 40 H-1B workers, Molina fired 40 programmers, security analysts and managers. Reports quoted a Molina spokesperson saying that ��this lawsuit is without merit�.
