Just read that Reuters will now be offshoring journalist jobs to Bangalore, India. That begs the question: who's job is really safe from $2 an hour Indian professional workers? Also inspired us to create some content:
Offshoring Your Ethics
OK Mr. Business Man do what you gotta do,
Offshore your manufacturing, your IT, your tech support,
Offshore your engineers, your journalists, and the accountants who keep your books,
That will leave us with the caregivers for the sick and the cooks,
And your ethics, well I'm afraid you offshored them too.
And that will leave you with the lawyers and the crooks.
