Outsourcing jobs to countries like India is fine – as long as it doesn't start impacting on Americans' way of life. That was the gist of the message delivered to a group of Indian technologists by Senator Hillary Clinton on Firday.
The presidential hopeful told the group that US workers are concerned about outsourcing, and that she agreed with them.
She warned with if the standard of living in the US were to fall – or be perceived to fall – it could spell the end of US-Indian co-operation.
The imperative is to keep US jobs safe to prevent workers feeling insecure and acting against perceived unfair competition, she says.
