India Gets IT! Information Technology that is…
Our government not so much! Part One – Jobs!
November 9th, 2010, addressing a joint press conference with Obama on the last leg of his three day India visit, Singh sought to allay concerns in the US and said, “As far as India is concerned, India is not in the business of stealing jobs from the US. Outsourcing industry, I believe, has helped to improve the productive capacity and productivity of American industries.” Protectionism, he said, is detrimental to both economies.
Hello! I guess these two leaders aren’t getting the daily barrage of SPAM emails from Indian companies soliciting my business to outsource software development and IT to India?! Not happening here. We are hiring right here in the good old US of A. We are adding people in the face of higher taxes and a struggling economy.
Simply put, both leaders are being dishonest and disingenuous.
Even though we have been losing millions of jobs to India, Obama is talking about India bringing 50,000 jobs to the US. Obama portends the “advancing middle class” in India will buy more goods from the US. Really? We don’t make most of the goods sold to the middle class here in the US. Why buy their goods here? China is right next store!!
