Lowe's Dumps US Workers, Sends Jobs to India

There are two nooz stories on the same topic.  Only one of them tells you about exporting the jobs to India, commonly called "offshoring."

Here's the version that Lowe's does NOT want you to read:

...Lowe’s has laid off about 125 corporate tech workers, primarily at its headquarters in Mooresville.
The home-improvement retailer informed affected employees Wednesday morning through early afternoon, according to people familiar with the matter.

Many of the affected information technology job functions are being sent to Bangalore, India, where Lowe’s employs approximately 1,000 people in information and technology and analytics....

So Lowe's--selling goods in the US only--is employing more than 1,000 folks in Bangalore.


Here's the sanitized story.  Guess which "nooz" outfit ran it?
