We already see so many indians working in US. Whenever we call any customer care....we get to hear an indian at the other end. Indians Everywhere !! Are Indians really eating away the jobs meant of Americans and should outsourcing be stopped ???

Well thats your view.I am indian and here is my reason.Due to big working force and very cheap labour,Many countries (cos) are outsourcing the buisness to India,Indonesia,Brasil. All depends upon Currency.Dollar is very much stronger currency than INR.Companies are happy to spend 1 grand of money instead of 3-4 grands,and getting the same services,for thier clients.

But if this continues for long, US economy would start sliding downwards. Already the govt is spending a fortune on military and stuff...I definetly feel US have started their slide downwards.

I believe outsource does hurt the US economy and US Businesses. Many US businesses are loosing consumers because they outsource their customer service. US companies are also loosing money because in the long run they pay more for outsourcing than hiring folks in the US. Even though peoiple from India seem like they are doing many outsourced jobs, many US companies have stopped outsourcing and are trying to bring jobs back to the US. What it willtake for all of the companies to come back are tax breaks. Maybe when the next president comes into office we will get more jobs back.
