Is outsourcing to India having a negative effect on America?
Recently, I've been seeing too many companies outsourcing their customer service to different countries, namely India. Granted, they work for much less, I get so upset because I can't understand them. Whenever I ask to speak to a supervisor, they get all pissy and I'm pretty sure that they transfer me back to themselves. Even Yahoo! outsources to India for their customer service. As such, do you think it's negatively effecting our economy, or is it boosting it? Pebogirl: I never knew that it went that deep into the heart of America. The fact that a doctor saves money by having his transcriptions sent to India is almost sickening. How's their grasp on the English language? From my experience, not so hot. Thanks, everyone, for all of your input.

Yes, it most certainly is. Good, hardworking Americans are losing their jobs left and right, feeding our failing economy. Bush wants to get us out of a recession? Forget immigration, stop outsourcing!

Manufacturing always goes where work force and taxes are cheaper. History has shown us that the US always reinvents itself and finds jobs in a new sector.
