LMAO: Indian Call Center outsourcing to ... USA! ROFL
[link to www.npr.org]

A big outsourcing company that does lots of work in India is looking to staff up in the U.S., where call center workers can now be hired on the cheap, the FT reports this morning.

People in the U.S. "are open to working at home and working at lower salaries than they were used to," Pramod Bhasin, chief exec of Genpact, tells the FT.


The firm plans to triple its U.S. workforce in the next two years — a plan rendered somewhat less impressive by the fact that it only has 1,500 employees in the U.S. right now.

Despite the relatively low number, there is something broader going on here: India is moving up the global pay-scale ladder, pushing outsourcing firms to look elsewhere for labor.

The number one thing that the US could have done to curb the exportation of jobs was to implement universal, government-funded healthcare.

I know you'll bitch and moan about "socialism" and the like, but it's a known fact that companies like to outsource to countries that have it because they know they will not be on the hook for thousands of dollars per year, per employee for health insurance.

Flame away, fuckos... but deep down you know I'm right.

They pay in higher company taxes, dipshit.

Jobs are exported to india because they are poor fucks who work for $2/day AND because the US federal globalist overlords permit them to.

Notice how the jobs weren't exported to Canada?

Our govt hates us, though. They are doing scratch and sniff tests on the fish from the gulf and saying that they are safe to eat. They don't regulate gmo foods, they allow corps to put carbon monoxide on meats to keep them "pink", poisonous plastics and cosmetics, aspartame is safe, high fructose corn syrup in almost EVERYTHING, growth hormones, fluoride, flu vaccines...there is so much! If our govt was looking out for us instead of corps we'd probably be a much healthier society and healthcare wouldn't be in such demand.

A suspicious person might come to the conclusion that someone wants to kill us all. Or at least keep us very sick so that they have even more power over us.

Oh well. It is what it is and what will be will be. :)

Re: LMAO: Indian Call Center outsourcing to ... USA! ROFL
I wanted to do this years ago, and was laughed at... :|

But the strip mall call center thing worked for a while, but this always sounds easier as you don't need the facility, nor do you need all those people on the roads.....

It's always the millions of connections, VPN's and all that... esp how people always fuck with company stuff at home.

I pitty their IT department.

Oh yeah - your elected parties have the citizens' backs in Germany paying reparations for a holocaust that never occurred for the past 60 years and funding the IDF to the tune of 100's of billions of dollars. Seems your multi-party system is equally as controlled and non-representative as the US one you deride.

Full circle. I called it.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1074349


Wages aren't the major expense in India, it's telecom. It costs big $$$$ to run T1's and E1's to India. Then again they've gotten so much cheaper over the years, I still remember paying in excess of $100k a month for an E1 from Miami to but fuck India.
