It’s no secret that SearchIndia.com has always been against outsourcing to India or elsewhere because it hurts workers in the U.S.
But it irritates us tremendously to learn that some unemployed Americans are outsourcing even their job hunting process to Vishakapatnam and other cities in India.
Think we’re kidding? Hell, no.
Read this excerpt from a story in the Wall Street Journal:
Clients among U.S. job seekers are hoping to beat the soft job market and tedium of searching with the help of fast-growing niche outsourcing services that rely on computers and workers in India. Customers can send thousands of job applications in a flash, but spamming employers with résumés leads to some strange mishaps.
One of the reasons for high unemployment in the U.S. is the large-scale outsourcing of jobs that’s been going to India, China, Philippines and elsewhere.
Now, Americans want to outsource even their job hunting to the same Indians who caused them misery in the first place.
This is beyond disgusting.
No wonder America is going down the toilet. 🙁
