Interesting Company Concept

A guy started "Rural America Onshore Outsourcing

Yeah, they pay less then the cities do, but rents are cheaper too...

People are finally leveraging our infrastructure and education. Too bad the GOP wants to fritter it all away in the name of "don't tax me, it's MY money" (that they made because of the infrastructure paid for by others before them...)

This seems like a promising trend. Until Big Business and Corporate Thinkers get their grimy mitts on it.

Yeah, the rats who put people in boxes ruin a lot of nice things in this country.

A few companies have been doing this successfully for a while now. Sioux Falls, SD is home to some of the biggest call centers and tech support groups in the US. Saves them big bucks to locate there and the staff already speaks the language.

They tried a big call center here but decided the minimum wage was too much to pay. Some of the people who worked there quit because they tried to do the double shift days bit, required overtime and fired those who refused to work it. Then they said they lost the contracts. Funny, they lost them just as their tax breaks for locating here ran out. They took the centers to the Phillipines and India.

Sounds like the oplace I just retired from.

They do it, often, only as long as the tax breaks they negotiate with the local government or the Feds last. Then they move somewhere else or go overseas anyway. Our $7.25 minimum wage stops some of them unless they can get a gov't subsidy to pay part of it by hiring handicapped or via some grant or tax break to pay part of the salary or benefits --- or they use all part-time help so as not to have to pay benefits.
