Work: August 2004 Archives

Outsource your own job

| | Comments (1)
via MetaFilter: This article describes the practice of an employee outsourcing their own job to India and pocketing the savings himself. The example given comes from an anonymous Slashdot post, perhaps making this more of an urban legend, but still, the idea of it definitely appeals to the greedy bastard in all of us.
About a year ago I hired a developer in India to do my job. I pay him $12,000 out of the $67,000 I get. He's happy to have the work. I'm happy that I have to work only 90 minutes a day just supervising the code. My employer thinks I'm telecommuting. Now I'm considering getting a second job and doing the same thing.
