The North Jersey Section's Professional Activities Committee (PACE) is hosting a meeting on the 2nd Thursday in May at Fairleigh Dickinson University's Teaneck Campus to discuss issues relevant to Engineering Careers. Our guest speaker is Dr. Stephen H. Unger, a long time active participant and Life Fellow of IEEE.
About the Talk
Stephen Unger says "Even in what are generally regarded as good times, many engineers (this term as used here includes other technical professionals who might also be members of societies such as the IEEE) are having difficulty in finding satisfactory jobs. Those with fifteen or more years of experience often have the most trouble. This is true despite widespread allegations by industry about a shortage of engineers and computer experts."
The talk will focus on importing foreign temporary workers and the H-1B program, but will include other issues such as the exporting of engineering jobs and the application of the "just-in-time" concept to engineers. What is going on? What will happen when times become less good? What can we do about it?
Input from those attending will be welcomed.
About the Speaker
Dr. Unger received a BEE degree from the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn, and MS and ScD degrees from MIT. He is a Professor of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, Columbia University and a principal founder and recent head of Columbia's undergraduate computer engineering program.
Dr. Unger worked at Bell Laboratories where he did research and development work and managed a software development group. During a summer sabbatical Dr. Unger performed consulting work at Bell Labs, IBM, RCA, and GE. He is the author of many papers on various computer-related topics, the author of "Asynchronous Sequential Switching Circuits", "The Essence of Logic Circuits", and "Controlling Technology: Ethics and the Responsible Engineer". He is currently doing research on self-timed systems. Dr. Unger was a Member of the IEEE Board of Directors (and USAB) 1995-96, and Chairman of the IEEE Ethics Committee 1997-98. He was also Past President of IEEE's Society on Social Implications of Technology. Dr. Unger also served on the USAB Ethics Committee and on other ad hoc committees that drafted various versions of the IEEE and other ethics codes.
Dr. Unger is cognizant of the issues at all of these levels and an excellent choice for Our North Jersey Section's guest speaker.
All Welcome! You do not have to be a member of the IEEE to attend.
Time: 7:00 PM, Thursday, May 11, 2000.

September, 1998 our Congressional representatives voted on legislation that is detrimental to members of the U.S. Engineering Community, the engineering profession and U.S. Engineering Capabilities. This legislation, HR3736, increased the number of H-1B visas from 65,000 to 95,000 for 1999 and to 115,000 for the following 5 years. This will displace 670,000 U.S. workers. This legislation, alone, will dedicate 4 million man years of work to foreign workers and deprive members of our U.S. Engineering Community of opportunities to earn a living and enhance their skill level.
Well! It's about to happen again. Congress has made it so easy to import foreign labor that new legislation is asking to increase the number of imports in the year 2000. It's on Capital Hill now and a lobbying effort is underway.
Legislation S. 2045, the Hatch-Abraham H-1B bill would give away 195,000 of some of America's best paying jobs and opportunities to foreign workers. This bill was supported by Senator Robert Torricelli (NJ) (202)224-3224 & (973)624-5555, on the Senate Judiciary Committee. You might want to give him a call.
H.R.3983, the Dreier-Lofgren Bill brings the limit up to 200,000 per year.
H.R. 4227, the Smith H-1B Bill Lifts the cap for unlimited imports, but provides for tougher anti-fraud provisions, and supports training of U.S. workers.
I don't have the space to cite all of the provisions of these Bills, but I have listed some Web locations for further more detailed information about them.
Party Lines: In general you can say the Republicans are pro increases, but they have not been introduced to the detrimental affects of these increases to the profession. We have to tell them that. Democrats, on the other hand, generally oppose the increases since they usually support labor's view, but some Democrats are supporting the increases. However, I believe both party members must be made aware of the circumstances, and a labor balance is better than a Surplus or a Shortage. Corporate money is reaching both parties.
In 1998 President Clinton had the opportunity to veto the legislation, but instead followed up his lack of action with a trip to Silicon Valley to pick up 4 Megabucks of party contributions from Corporate America. See North Jersey "NEWSLETTER" for Nov. 1998 "Engineers Have Few Friends in Washington." There is a lot money behind this effort.
Your Position: If you are a member of the U.S. Engineering Community you will be affected by this legislation. By definition, when you are employed in the U.S. as an Engineer, Programmer, High Tech Worker, etc., you automatically become a member of the U.S. Engineering community. It makes no difference if you have been here, in the U.S., 40 years or 40 minutes. The next H-1B imported worker will replace one of us; 200,000 will replace 200,000 of us. Yesterday's engineer is today's victim and today's engineer will be tomorrow's victim. It never stops.
Practice Your Profession or lose It; It is important to practice your profession to maintain your skills and keep abreast with technology. We see engineers doing engineering work 20% of the time and engineering support work 80% of the time. After 10 years they accrue only 2 years of engineering experience. This is a detriment to the engineer and to U.S. Engineering Capabilities. This can happen only with an Engineering Manpower Surplus. Do you really believe we should let America lose its Engineering Capabilities?
The Opposition: The Information Technology Association of America (ITAA) is lobbying for legislation to increase the number of H-1B imported workers. ITAA's members consist of companies, Corporate America, and not Information Technologists, as their name implies. Yes, they do have a Web site and they list their corporate members. If your company is on their membership list you may be one of those to be replaced by the next foreign worker. (See: www.itaa.org)
Here is a case of ITAA's Corporate Members (Corporate America) using profits, earned by their current employees, to support legislation to replace the same employees that earned those profits. Ironic, isn't it?
Off to Washington: April 26 - 29 I visited Capitol Hill at the invitation of the Coalition for the Future American Worker (CFAW). The purpose was to lobby in opposition to the increase in the number of H-1B visas. It was very educational for myself and for the representatives I met. Apparently they haven't heard much from the members of the Engineering Community, so this was a good start. The effort was continued by others as I left. Here are some of the players and their web sites: Coalition for the Future American Worker, www.americanworker.org, the Programmer's Guild, www.programmersguild.org, FAIR Congressional Taskforce, www.fairus.org. I, as Vice President of the American Engineering Association, Inc. www.aea.org and other members from AEA, IEEE and other groups supported the CFAW effort. (More participants are listed on CFAW's web site). AEA is against any increase and will strive to have the existing numbers rolled back. CFAW has withdrawn its support of the Smith H-1B Bill even as the least of the evils since it lifted the cap and still has some worker protection provisions. You will have to decide how you want your Representative to vote. I still believe we should try to defeat all Bills asking for an increase.
Your help is needed to support this effort and to reach your representative. It's your profession and your future. The following Congressional representatives voted to increase the number or H-1B imported workers in 1998. They will probably vote for increases again this year unless you can convince them otherwise.

On May 11th, 2000, the IEEE North Jersey Section Computer Chapter will host a presentation on "Multi-media Data Bases" by Eli Rohn.
About the Talk
Traditional databases contain easily indexed numbers and text. Now a new type of database is emerging on the horizon, that will contain a much greater variety of data forms, such as images, sound, video clips, and animation. For such databases, traditional indexing methods are not always applicable. For example, how do you query a video library, or an image database containing x-rays, or sounds in an audio database? The first part of the one hour presentation will explain what multi-media databases are and how they differ from the traditional DBMS. The second part will focus on exciting novel research sponsored by NSA and DARPA regarding multi-media databases. This part will include screen-shots and possibly a live demonstration.
About the Speaker

The IEEE North Jersey Section is hosting the Fall 2001 Vehicular Technology Conference in Atlantic City, NJ from October 6-11, 2001. And now's your chance to get involved.
Have you ever wondered how a conference comes together? How speakers, tutorials, meals, and many other activities are smoothly integrated? How to produce a powerful technical program of international caliber? How to advertise your company's name on the coffee cups during the lunches and breaks?
Then this is the deal for you. The conference committee is issuing an open call for volunteers to help man its sub-committees. Currently the following have some openings: local arrangements, banquet, publicity, publications, registration, special/social events, transportation, and many others.
But it doesn't stop there. There are special discounts for student volunteers and sponsoring companies. What better way for your organization to get its name out to hundreds of people from worldwide in the mobile communications arena than by becoming Platinum, Gold, or Silver sponsors? You can even tailor your sponsorship to meet your advertising needs. This includes getting tables or floor space to exhibit YOUR products and services to those people with the purchasing power or an all electronic advertisement on the website.
Even students can get involved. There is a significant student admissions discount and does not require any society affiliations. We are also looking for students to man the registration desk and take on other activities. Universities are also welcome to become sponsors.
How can you find out more and get involved? Contact conference chair Art Greenberg at firstname.lastname@example.org or (973) 492-1207, and Industry Liaison/Exhibits chair Stephen Wilkowski at email@example.com or (973) 386-6487. Check out the website at http://www.fallvtc2001.com/index.htm.
Here's Your GOLDen Opportunity!
Have you graduated (from your first bachelors' degree) in the last ten years? Looking to make professional and personal connections in the North Jersey area? Want to learn more about how to make your IEEE membership work for you? Then let's get a GOLD (Graduates of the Last Decade) group rolling again.
