From their comfort of their own homes…

In true spirit of global communication, and the risk of sounding like a right wing bigot or Daily Mail reader, foreigners do not even have to come to this country to take British jobs – they can do it from the “comfort” of their own land.

For clarification, I am not white or working class. I am British and Asian and middle class. And I have personally seen the effect of this outsourcing of skilled jobs halfway across the world for the sake of cost. At my previous employer, it was the legal administration team who were made redundant and their jobs were carried out by qualified lawyers in India. I have previously written about this concept of offshore outsourcing. Whilst I can see the benefits from a business point of view, it is just wrong from human point of view.

    Funny thing is, when the whole globalization thing really got going, they sold it to us with the promise that the skilled jobs would stay in the “First World.” Now they’re outsourcing legal services and programming.

    I guess we’re all supposed to become subsistence farmers.
