I'm not prejudice towards cultures that provide outsourced services.
Some of the most intelligent and dilligent people I know are from
south Asian decent. What I'm against is the lack of labor laws
overseas and the fact that a dollar an hour overseas will get these
people a great deal more for their money than minimum wage in the
states. Basically we've now seen that American labor laws will be
bypassed at every opportunity by corporations.
Where are all these corporate savings going? They go to the
companies, then they go in the form of dividends to the investors,
most of which are very wealthy individuals. The rich get richer, the
poor who have no spare funds to invest simply get poorer as low-wage
jobs go overseas to people who will work for even lower wages.
Of course, outsourcing has its limits. Some skills such as medical
care, transportation and skilled on-site repair can't exactly be
outsourced. Putting all your eggs in one basket can bite companies in
the ass, as well. For example, when the monsoons arrived in India
last July most American calling centers virtually ground to a halt,
Dell's included. The langauge barrier became enormous as frustrated
customers tried to understand the vague & obscure Texas call-center
In addition, outsourcing some fields like R&D can bite a company in
the ass; after all, theres no corporate espionage laws keeping
overseas researchers from utilizing company resources, then selling
their findings to the highest bidders (ie competitors) on the black
market for thousands (millions?) of dollars. Corporate espionage can
(and does) run rampant, as the pharmaceutical industry can attest.
Bottom line? Get the education, get the high paying jobs...cuz the
low-paying jobs won't be around for long.
