It's really popular with workers; CEOs, not so much. It's Job Tracker, and all you have to do is put in your zip code to find out which companies in your area are off-shoring, outsourcing, and breaking labor laws.
Announced just yesterday, Job Tracker, a project of AFL-CIO affiliate Working America, has been “hugely popular,” according to Online Mobilization Coordinator Manny Herrmann. “The site got so much traffic it was overwhelmed, and people couldn’t get through to it for about an hour.”
Using a zip code, you can modify your search area from a 5-100 mile radius. The data will provide particulars about how many and which companies have shipped jobs overseas, laid people off, and violated labor, discrimination, and health & safety laws—and more. You can search specific companies and industries and also provide information to Working America to help keep the data base current.
“For the first time, working people have one place to see the real impact of outsourcing, bad trade deals and currency manipulation,” Hermann says. “Every corporate traitor Working America exposes—and every company you and your friends, co-workers and family add—makes a stronger case for holding corporations accountable.”
