After reading the Sept. 6 issue of InformationWeek, I was very disappointed with your magazine's apparently biased position on the issue of offshoring/outsourcing.
Not one dissenting viewpoint was given in any of the three articles to warn that offshoring may not be the right direction. Each article quotes only views from
VPs and higher about how offshoring is inevitable and it will save them money.
I also didn't appreciate this editorial quote from your author, Rusty Weston: The question "isn't whether to try offshoring, it's how to succeed at it."
Myself and most other Americans, according to recent newspaper polls, are opposed to the recent offshoring trends. Your magazine is simply aiding and encouraging the practice. How can one not recognize this is mainly a short-term ploy by CEOs and CFOs to improve the bottom line? American workers are suffering for it, and, in the long term, American companies will be suffering for it.
Being an IT worker, I don't appreciate having to compete with other workers on an uneven playing field, and, like most Americans, don't think that this trend will help our economy or our competitiveness in the future.
I especially don't appreciate these views from an industry periodical whose readership was built upon these same IT workers who are now losing their jobs.
