sycodon writes: In what I can only describe as a major WTF is going on here moment, a federal agency (Agency for International Development) run by a hand-picked Obama appointee (Rajiv Shah) has launched a $22 million program to train workers, including 3,000 specialists in IT and related functions, in South Asia. Following their training, the tech workers will be placed with outsourcing vendors in the region that provide offshore IT and business services to American companies looking to take advantage of the Asian subcontinent's low labor costs. Correct me if I'm wrong, but with today's economy, the last thing we need is the Federal Government helping foreign firms undercut the U.S. IT Labor force.
