Big Blue and ATT Screw You!!


This is a real shocker.  /sarcasm

Outsourcing corporation IBM laid off about 20,000 older Americans in the last five years, a new investigation reveals, while the tech multinational sought to import at least 37,000 foreign workers to take U.S. jobs....

Here's the part that will REALLY set you back a couple of steps:

...about 60 percent of the Americans that were laid off by IBM in the last five years were workers over the age of forty.....

FORTY, the new "Geezer."

This is precisely what Norm has been saying for at least 5 years.  

And it's not just IBM, either.  AT&T has an allergy to American workers.

 ...Since 2011, AT&T has outsourced or eliminated more than 16,000 U.S. jobs, including the closure of 44 call centers. Just this year, AT&T has shuttered four call centers in the U.S. and sent those American jobs to foreign countries....

....but there are plenty of food-store clerk and hamburger-flipper jobs for American yout' with $40K or so in college-loan debts.

Meantime, the US military will protect the US assets of these firms, so their management can sleep better at night.
