The Jobs Are Coming Back!

At least I expect them to come back soon:

"Call centre workers are becoming as cheap to hire in the US as they are in India, according to the head of the country’s largest business process outsourcing company...

High unemployment levels have driven down wages for some low-skilled outsourcing services in some parts of the US...At the same time, wages in India’s outsourcing sector have risen by 10 per cent this year...Pramod Bhasin, the chief executive of Genpact, said his company expected to treble its workforce in the US over the next two years, from about 1,500 employees now."

Ah, the miracle of private enterprise. Our mighty business titans have finally found a way to bring jobs back home. Now that Americans are willing to work for less than people are getting in third world countries, we can have all the jobs we want. See, we didn't need any of that nasty government intervention. The Republicans were right all along- just starve us long enough and we'll do anything they tell us to.

The greatest country on earth, yes sir! Why, another spell of Republican rule, and Americans will be heading south for career opportunities as gardeners in Mexico.

A quick look on Wikipedia... "According to a 2005 World Bank estimate, 42% of India falls below the international poverty line of $1.25 a day".

Reckon you can beat that America?

Why, we can do anything here, buster. Even reduce ourselves to starving third world peasants. Just watch us go!
