Too bad for local people losing jobs - will not miss the outlet store! Too many yucky memories of having to buy clothes there as a child.
Sounds like we are gaining jobs as the call center is expanding (at the expense of Grand Rapids (worse off than us!) and Albuquerque. )
I see more and more companies using Columbus for outsourcing. Cheaper labor than in cities.
There has been a small trend to move jobs that are outsourced to other countries back into poor, depressed or cheap labor markets.
The net each year is still outsourcing jobs to other countries, I'm hoping this trend will continue.
I have received lots of emails from people urging me to ask for a person from the US when you are sent to another country for support. It seems to be a grassroots campaign saying that if everyone did it companies would have to move jobs back to the united states. I do it occasionally, but only when I can not understand the person on the phone.
The times I have asked for someone who speaks English in the US, they have transferred me. Montana, Florida and Wisconsin is where I usually end up.
