Buffalo News: Critics charge Sen. Clinton tied to Offshore Outsourcing U.S. Jobs
"She touted how she brought Tata to Buffalo – and in the meantime Tata is one of the biggest body shops in America,” bringing cheap foreign labor to this country while exporting other jobs to India, said John Bauman, founder of the Connecticut- based Organization for the Rights of American Workers."
"In its last fiscal year, nevertheless, Tata — which reported revenues of $4.1 billion — ranked as the top Indian exporter of software and services this year, according to the National Association of Software and Service Companies."
“What she did was really pretty dumb from an economic development point of view,” said Ron Hira, an assistant professor of public policy at Rochester Institute of Technology and the author of “Outsourcing America.” “Tata destroys a lot more American jobs than it created [in] Buffalo.”
The article fails to mention that Ron Hira, quoted above, is also with the Economic Policy Institute (EPI). Links to his writings and a video of him discussing the use of guest worker visas to replace American middle class workers appears on this blog site. See the links to the side noting that TATA/TCS uses imported Indian "guest workers" (rather than Americans) for its managerial, engineering and technical positions (what have historically been good, well paying middle class jobs) in the U.S. -- nearly 8,000 imported workers in 2006. TATA was #1 user of L-1 "guest workers" and #4 in H-1b in 2006.
