U.S. workers at Boeing who log some overtime over the next year helping to fulfill the company's $7 billion aircraft order from Air India might have offshore IT outsourcing to thank for their fatter paychecks-indirectly, at least.Indian officials told the Financial Times in a story Monday that American "grousing" over offshoring was one factor in the country's decision to award the contract to Boeing over Europe's Airbus consortium.
