The layoffs will happen in December. What the heck is our government doing to prevent this from happening. We are going to have more homeless families. Thank You U Subcontract Aliens (USA), but we do have our religious freedoms which is more important than putting food in our mouths or pay for heat to keep our bodies warm.

Export the jobs

Ya see, if you export the jobs it helps the economy. Or so sez the Republicans.

Meanwhile, hundreds of Minnesota citizens are losing houses and on the dole 'cuz
the jobs are sent away. So how is that helping the economy and the taxpayer here?
Maybe its time to take the Legal Records business away from the private sector and keep
it right here in the USA.

Hmmmm.I am a Republican, I do not say export the jobs, I am sick and tired of Companies making this type of decision. Lets look at some of the compensation packages of those making these decisions. How can they sleep at night? As they are exporting jobs to India, we have people losing jobs and houses while they make this type of executive decision. What about coming up with creative ways to keep staff? To much academic brains with no darn common sense!

The thought leaders told you the republicans say that, but it didn't really happen. Parroting the thought leader's lies is simply a confession to sheeplehood.

Maybe there would be "enough jobs to go round" if we closed our borders to everyone and placed a zero sum gain on all immigration for the next ten years. Can not keep letting anyone who wants to immigrate here and still have enough of everything for everyone.

Try closing the borders to everyone, and halting ALL immigration for the next 10 years. Can't expect to continue to allow anyone & everyone who wants to immigrate here do so and still have enough of everything for everyone.

I was at a corporate meeting yesterday where I described to the boss how we needed additional staffing to do some new things our department was being assigned.

He agreed. Then he told us to contact the office in India because we wouldn't have to pay them so much. Now he'll get a bonus for thinking of that brilliant "solution."

This is just one of many layoffs at Thomson Reuters....with more to come. And you need to check your facts, there haven't been 7000 employees in Eagan for years. The current figure is closer to 4000 and dropping. By year end 2011, the job cuts will be closer 500 and 2012 might as well be the end of the world, at least for Eagan, as there will be more then. And the work being done overseas is not the same quality as work done here, but it's cheaper so they can hire more people to do the same work, then corporate can report, "look, we added thousands of jobs", they just neglect to say "we've cut American jobs and shipped them to a foreign country that doesn't understand how to do what needs to be done".

it's happening all over; just happened to me after 31 years with the company, my job is going to india. it's time for the US to STOP giving tax credits to these corps for sending out jobs to india and START giving them stiff penalties. When nobody is working in this country, who do they think will be buying their products???

Thomson is buying an Indian legal outsourcing company. These jobs will go to India forever.
