TD out sources it’s call center for 1 [/quote]
From the article you linked:
[quote]There have been no jobs lost because of the decision to use an Indian partner, Hechler replied.
“In fact, we have 50,000-plus employees and continue to aggressively recruit and hire in all areas across the country.”[/quote]
Yeah, this isn’t really about out-sourcing, though. It’s about firing people and then bringing foreign workers in to do the same job, in the same office, for less money. The foreign worker program is supposed to be for jobs that Canadians can’t do, or for where there are shortages of skilled Canadians to do the jobs.
In the case of Royal Bank, they’re actually asking the current employees to train the foreign workers. Crazy.
Anyway, it may be illegal. Let’s see if they back down – they’re already trying to distance themselves and blame it on a contractor.
All-around shitty. Out-sourcing is crappy, sure, but this is another level of crap. How many billions in profit did RBC make last year? How much money did the Canadian government lend them to keep them liquid a couple of years ago?
