This is just unbelievable, and has me wondering why Floridians have not gotten out the pitchforks.Outsourcing to India in order to privatize state services? Christ. Ed Wallace:
This really struck home a week ago. ABC News did a story about Florida's privatizing its food stamp operations to J.P Morgan - which in turn contracted a call center in India to process the claims. Imagine that. Florida gives taxpayers' money to J.P. Morgan, which to make a greater profit uses that money to hire people in India, putting Floridians out of a job. Then out-of-work Floridians have to call India to get approved for food stamps. Now that's ironic.
Most surprising to me was J.P. Morgan's involvement in this......since when did the big financial firms begin dealing in this kind of thing?
