The Onshore Alternative

Budget planning continues and we've had to make a few more cuts. 

As a result, Tefft has decided to go with a cost-effective yet risk-adverse alternative to offshore outsourcing. She is no longer going to send work to India. 

"I'm still going to have Indians do the work, but onshore instead of offshore," she said.

"But their rate will be the same as any contractor here in the states," I said. "How is that cost-effective?"

"No, not the Indians with dots. The Indians with feathers," she said. 

Tefft has found a company that will go to Reservations to administer behavioral and aptitude tests to willing participants, then select those who qualify to attend a 12 week training course on computer programming.  

Tefft has already started planning for welcoming the feathered Indians. She has asked Gladstone to prepare a mural that depicts the battle of the Alamo in which the Indians overtook the Mexicans. She's been saying, Remember the Alamo! all day.

She's decorated her office with slogans such as, Why buy the dot when you can get the feather almost free? and India who?  

The Indians we currently have working in the office are all grumbling and most likely planning her assasination.  

Budget cuts make people crazy. Although some were crazy to begin with.
