Carrie’s Nation, a blog I didn’t know, has published an excellent, extensive, and very thorough discussion of the Outsourcing/H-1B scandal: Ross School of Outsourcing Wednesday March 11 2009.

This keys off an op-ed by a scalawag Professor at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, Robert Kennedy, who is apparently making a career out of cheer-leading for worker-importing and job-exporting. (Email Professor Kennedy).

Carrie’s Nation makes quite heavy use of work at various venues by John Miano (it was by a link to one of his VDARE items I was alerted to this essay). There are also some valuable quotes from Indians executives gloating about the advantage exploiting the H-1B loophole gives them:

Tata Consultancy Services Vice President Vice President Phiroz Vandrevala states in regards to H-1B and L-1 visa holders

"Typically, for a TCS employee with five years experience, the annual cost to the company is $60,000-70,000, while a local American employee might cost $80,000-100,000." " "This (labour arbitrage) is a fact of doing work onsite. It`s a fact that Indian IT companies have an advantage here and there`s nothing wrong in that. The issue is that of getting workers in the US on wages far lower than the local wage rate." "

( emphasis. The link above is priceless.)

The author of Carrie’s Nation describes herself as

a housewife living in a northwestern suburb of Detroit. I consider myself to be part of an almost extinct breed called a moderate Republican.

Judging by the quality of this article, her house must be immaculate. And, based on her understanding of this issue, she is going to have a hard time staying a �moderate Republican�.
