. . . . . . . . . . . . . A new report from
the Department of Labor finds an increasing number of American
workers are outsourcing their jobs. For more on this crucial issue,
let’s go to Joshua Russel in the Money Room. Thanks Brandon. For years, corporations
have been outsourcing their labor to developing nations
as a way to cut costs. But recently, many individual employees
have been sending their own work overseas. I take the money that
I would have spent on coffee and pay someone in India
to do my job for me. It’s allowed me to unleash
my full potential. Philadelphia accountant, Donald Felton,
outsources the majority of his daily workload to Jahanara Kashem,
an accountant based in Bangalore, India. I give my assignments from my supervision
and I send it off to Jahanara. Sometimes, I’ll look at it when it’s done,
but usually, everything is right. Mr. Kashem says he’s extremely happy
with the .68 cents an hour Donald pays him. I am able to feed my family
and Mr. Felton can devote more time to his fantasy football team. And Donald is just of the
close to 700,000 workers, who have come
to rely on overseas labor. I’ve gotten two raises since
Jahanara started. He’s really good
at doing my work. But it’s not just lower level employees
who have embraced the trend. In Donald’s firm, many senior level managers
are now outsourcing their jobs as well. Workers representing
the companies executive officers meet via conference call
every Friday. (arguing in background, between Americans
and their outsourced workers in India) Some overseas workers have done so well,
they’ve been able to outsource their own outsourced work
to those even poorer them themselves. I pay a starving man in Jakarta
one handful of rice per day to fill out the expense reports
that are send to me from the U.S. Analyst predict that if the trend continues,
by 2025, the world’s poorest man, Ahmed Khalili of Afghanistan,
will be doing 83% of the globes work. It’s a scenario that would suit
Donald Felton just fine. I’m trying to get to a point
where I can just lay in one place and not have to do anything
ever. With the Onion News Network,
I’m Joshua Russell. Thanks Joshua. Personal outsourcing is expected to grow as
much as 20% over the next 5 years according to the Filipino team that
completed the Department of Labor’s report. Coming up next:
A new study find the meth epidemic is hitting worthless Americans
hardest.
