US immigration bill could slow Indian outsourcers

Low cost efficiency put India's outsourcing companies at the heart of global business and created a multibillion dollar industry that for years has skated over criticism it was eliminating white collar jobs in rich nations. Now, the industry's long-held fears of a backlash are being realized in its crucial U.S. market.

For U.S. labor advocates, those profits are proof that Indian outsourcing companies can afford to pay for what they say is damage done to the U.S. labor market.

"Indian companies can advertise and recruit in the U.S. just the way foreign auto companies do. There is plenty of homegrown talent who would be happy to work at a good salary for a company with a future in the United States," said Ross Eisenbrey, vice president of the Economic Policy Institute, a left-leaning think tank in Washington.
