50 More IT Professionals Training Their Foreign Replacements

I need to tip my hat to Senator Sessions’ office for dropping this article from MyFoxTampaBay into my inbox this morning.  From the MyFoxTampaBay post:

About 50 Catalina IT workers will be replaced by employees from Mindtree, one of the largest outsourcing firms used by companies in the U.S. , according to sources familiar with the matter. Employees affected by the layoffs told FOX 13 they’re being asked to train their foreign replacements.

Catalina Marketing wouldn’t answer any questions. The company sent a statement from a California-based PR firm saying the decision to transition some operations to Mindtree was part of their “ongoing focus on enhancing Catalina’s unique business competencies, building new capabilities, and focusing on core business strategies.”

When the Trans Pacific Partnership agreement passes through Congress and is signed by the President, you can expect to see more of this; at least, that’s my prediction.  Happy Monday, y’all.
