Not only did Redwood City software titan Oracle favor hiring Asians for key departments, it favored non-citizen Asian graduates of U.S. colleges over American graduates, the federal government claimed in a lawsuit.

The Department of Labor alleges in its suit against Oracle that a “vast majority” of the firm’s hires through its college recruiting program were non-citizen visa holders from Asia.

    Meh.. It's going to be really difficult for them to prove that Oracle did it intentionally, because chances are they didn't. Many companies just look to hire top talent, they might just happen to be foreigners. Oracle in particular has a very strong university recruitment process. Foreign students make up the majority in many top graduate programs.

    They did it intentionally, managers there were preferring to hire people like themselves.

      Because they themselves were college recruits once? So foreign borns can never recruit foreign-borns?

      Don’t pretend you don’t know the real issue. It’s like human trafficking from a certain place to the US. We are full of them and they are full of themselves.
