outsourcing is a great thing for companies, AT&T does it for everything not directly related to their operations, i'm talking about tech support, customer service, call handling, whatever, you call AT&T and i can almost guarantee that hte person you speak to does not work directly for AT&T.

with that said, outsourcing creates quite a bit of jobs that people who don't have as much training, etc, can attain. They make really good 1st jobs out of college, etc.

However, international outsourcing for large corporations will leave a HUGE hole in the domestic job market. I'm talking HUGE. The call center I worked for had 7 major accounts and over 1600 employees, and we were considered one of the smaller centers. We were also fairly well paid for the area, more than most retail managers and people in non-professional settings.

i'm kinda worried at how many jobs are leaving the country and i'm really getting worried about what is going to fill the empty slots
