Do we really want our Stimulus money, U.S. taxpayer money going to India? Well, if they let IBM get at it we assuredly will.
As the economy continues to reel from the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression and jobless claims amass in droves, creating jobs for American workers has become a focal point of American recovery. As the stimulus money is being doled out, one notorious outsourcer has developed a media campaign to get stimulus money for smart grid technologies.
IBM announced that is planning to seek a portion of the $2.5 billion that was set aside to stimulate broadband rollouts for rural America. Smart grid systems deliver electricity from suppliers to consumers using digital technology to save energy and cost. This electricity network is being promoted by numerous governments as a way to address energy independence and global warming.
Yup, IBM is so busy firing U.S. workers they literally told laid off workers to offshore outsource themselves.
IBM has been labor arbitraging workers, moving as fast as they can jobs, technologies offshore and when they cannot do that, bringing in foreign guest workers.
Time and time again, IBM has been given state and local tax incentives to create jobs. IBM never actually creates more jobs. They simply take the government money and continue to offshore outsource.
Truth is IBM is a Benedict Arnold company and they should not get a dime of that Stimulus as a result.
Don't believe it, contact Alliance@IBM, a union affiliated with the AFL-CIO and find out IBM's track record with taking U.S. taxpayer dollars all the while offshore outsourcing their job.
