The New Outsourcing

Trashed Office

Before I say anything. I want you to know this is NOT my office at home or work. I do, however, work with people who’s desk look like this. How they get anything done is beyond me.

As mentioned in previous post the department I work in is being “outsourced” to Mexico. Isn’t that a lovely euphemism for “we sent your job to a country where we can pay them a 3rd a your salary, take care now, buh bye.”

Used to be when people got laid off, there was not much warning. Yea it’s traumatic but it’s over with quickly. Like ripping off a gigantic band-aid. Now you find out months in advance so you can “close the project out in a professional way.” This is a nice way to say “we want you to dig your own grave, and no complaining about it, that’s just not how it’s done these days.”

Today is office cleaning day so we are in our jeans either storing or trashing everything. Too many decisions. I wanna go home!
