Just read some news on who is sending US jobs offshore.
Two big players.
Microsoft plans to shed at least 2,400 jobs as it expands its Bangalore Support center.
"Microsoft Senior Vice President Brian Valentine gave a presentation urging managers to begin outsourcing software-development projects to contractors in India for "quality work at 50 to 60 percent of the cost.'' " SiliconValley.com
"In our business, we're always evaluating different strategies to improve customer support,"
Of course its about quality, not saving 50 -60%.
Who pays the 2,400 ex MS workers unemployment benifits?
Does your job depend on them spending money in your local shops?
Will US taxes rise because less people are paying tax and MS now earns the income offshore (so paying less tax)?
Of course no political party would move US jobs offshore and cost US companies and workers jobs, not if it was facing an election.
It wouldn't hire a firm called HCL eServe in India.
Well not if it thought you would find out........
"THE REPUBLICAN PARTY is using call centres in Gurgaon and Noida in India to raise funds for itself and for its chieftain, George W. Bush."
Well its not the first time US politicians have sent their dollars overseas.
"The Republican contract comes on the heels of a successful anti-abortion campaign run by HCL eServe for a US politician. "
Well, its not like they need your vote to stay in office...........
