Outsourcing jobs



 “On the last day on the job Kevin Flanagan, after clearing out a few personal effects and putting them in boxes in the back of his Ford Ranger, left the building where he’d worked for seven years.  He settled into the front seat of his pickup truck on the lower level of the company garage, placed a twelve-gauge Remington Shotgun to his head, and pulled the trigger.
He was forty-one years old.  He was a computer programmer.  He’d been a programmer his entire working life. “ p.99.
From.  The Betrayal of the American Dream.  Donald Bartlett and James Steele. 2012.
I encourage you to read their piece on outsourcing or offshoring and their excellent chapter on Apple computers moves.
