Indian software business under threat?


From The New York Times :: New Jersey legislator, Shirley K. Turner, introduced a bill that would require that workers hired under state contracts be American citizens or legal aliens or they occupy some specialty niche that American workers cannot be found to fill. ” `I say it’s time to bring ’em back from Bombay,’ Senator Turner said of the client service jobs currently based in India,” a news release stated. The legislation being considered in several states has software and services executives worried that American opposition to outsourcing in India is growing. They worry that regardless of whether such laws are enacted, the sentiment will spread. It may, they fear, slow companies’ decisions to outsource — and perhaps even encourage them to send work to other countries.
