Another Reason to Hate the Evil Empire

Well, looks like more American jobs will be lost over-seas.

According to this article on Wired News, Microsoft (AKA The Evil Empire) is going to cut jobs in the US and send more programming work to India. I wonder if that will raise or lower the percentage of bugs in the code? Probably lower it, but only because they can work non-Americans harder for less pay. Though, I wonder how long that will be true?

You know, I’m all for the global economy and all, but I have to say that I still hate to see the loss of American jobs. I don’t have trouble buying products from other countries, but I hate to see American companies screwing the American worker. Does that make me a “bigot” or a “racist”, as an anonymous coward suggested? No, but it does make me a nationalist. I still do believe in promoting our own country’s interestes first. Why do I feel like the only one these days?
