Are we Indians not shouting for more reservations, more jobs for locals?
At each State level, are we not demanding some sort of legislation to safe guard jobs for locals?
Are we not familiar with vote catching promises by politicians and assert “sons of the soil’ programs forgetting India is one country?
Regional chauvinism was introduced by the Shiv Sena. Other political parties simply followed suit.
Ever since Balasaheb Thackeray formed the Shiv Sena and asserted the rights of locals over jobs in Mumbai,
Similar parties with similar agendas have been formed in many other states like West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Orissa, and Kerala. All of them have ‘sons of the soil’ at the centre of their political agenda. Shiv Sena committed violence against the South Indians employed in Mumbai ‘to assert the rights of locals over jobs in Mumbai’. In the South, the political parties, far from perpetrating violence on those from outside their state, wanted the regulatory framework to be fine-tuned to assert the rights of locals over jobs.
When we can not afford to loose our jobs to other state fellow Indians, how can we expect and demand, out sourcing of Jobs to India from US ,at the cost of Americans losing those jobs?
What is wrong in protecting Americans from loosing their jobs either to Indians or to some other country national?
Will you not do the same thing if our Indian jobs are out sourced to other countries?
Edit: Almost 10?f US Citizen are unemployed!!
When this is the situation, and fore closure of Mortgages are very common nowadays, what do you expect US to do?
Give the jobs to other country nationals?
There was some sort of protest in Mumbai when other state fellow Indians went to write competitive Examination for Railway recruitment ; When this is the state of things in our own country , we Indians expect no Curbs introduced by US against ' out sourcing of Jobs' !!!
Totally double standard !!!
Congressman Tim Bishop scored a big win for hard-working American families by preventing more jobs from being shipped overseas.
“Right now, India’s workforce is already processing our mortgage applications, reading our X-rays, preparing our tax returns and conducting our financial research,” Bishop stated during debate. “Before we add food stamp help desks and call centers to that list, we must ask ourselves how much sense it makes to give away the kind of jobs that we could use to put unemployed Americans to work.” “Hundreds of thousands of Americans across the country are out of work and looking to earn an honest living,” Bishop stated. “Now is the time to protect American workers and the services they provide and not a time for taxpayer funded layoffs.”
Don’t you think this is a just action to protect Americans from losing their jobs to India and other countries?
Reg MS Believe in extended answer:
1 Whether President Osama’s policies on Health care etc are accepted or not by Americans is none of our concern.
2. Same is with whether he can give Tax cut to AA or not.
3. Where from America imports Jeans etc is also none of our concern.
4. Whatever policies they formulate for that Country, it is their concern only. We need not talk about it even.
5 . Indian IT companies have to find alternate place to do their job instead of entirely depending upon US.
Many countries around the world protect their citizens against job loss; also give incentives to foreign countries to set up manufacturing units in their country so that their citizens are benefited.
Can a foreign company set up a business in West Bengal State or Kerala State? Political parties in those states will see to it they are packed off and sent out.
We had seen how even TATA has to move out his car manufacturing unit away from West Bengal.
MS Believe in..sir.. pl correct your first sentence.. there is nothing to be laughed at..
So you want to say that since it is a business matter, you can question other country's policy of protecting their citizens against losing their jobs?
Why you want only US jobs and depend on that country alone. Go to Russia, you will know how hard it is to earn there.
Try to go to any other country, you will realize you are not welcomed.
Even our neighboring countries do not want us.
We had our good time, now we have to find some other avenues for our professionals. They can as they are very intelligent and hard working.They know how to live.
Edit: I stay in US, i see lot of job losses here, including my own relatives .
Outsourcing may be cheaper, but at what cost ? people have to live first.
