Re: Outsourcing US jobs to India

Adriana Pena says: "I imagine that Cameron Sawyer's job is not the one being outsourced. As for the lousy jobs, lousy they might be, but for many, it allows them to make a living. Does he think that people who lose low level jobs will qualify for the better ones?".

Adriana has a point. It is not just low-level jobs which are being outsourced. India has skilled programmers, and such jobs are being outsourced too. On paper outsourcing may look good, but talk to some people who are agonizing because they lost their jobs, and you realize that you are not dealing with wooden pawns.
