This corporation literally gets contracted to find ways to outsource labor.

"Convergys Corporation (NYSE: CVG),a global leader in customer care, human resources, and billing services, (aka the best at shutting down American jobs and replacing them with exploited labor overseas) announced today the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals’ (IAOP) has selected Convergys as one of the world’s best outsourcing service providers."

CEO - Dave Dougherty through 2010

Jeff Fox took over for Dave in 2012 and is now executive chairman of the company’s board.

Still bragging about outsourcing

"(Cincinnati; March 1, 2012) - Convergys Corporation (NYSE: CVG), one of the largest agent-assisted customer service companies in the world, announced today that Customer Relationship Management (CRM) magazine has recognized Convergys as the winner of its 2012 Service Award in the Outsourcing category."

This is a small victory that comes from the minimal pressure OWS has begun to organize.

Our small voices, have emboldened many pro labor groups, and many individual Americans to become aware, outraged, and outspoken against the outsourcing of American jobs and the exploitation of 3rd world workers.

YOU are one of those voices.

Thank you, and congratulations.

Now we gotta ratchet up the pressure.

Hopefully this turns into a positive. The abuse Foxconn and the American corps that exploit them will hopefully come to an end.

I write my congressmen all the time about the need to reform trade laws. They always talk about wanting to create jobs, but they never do anything about it. Reforming trade laws to abide by American labor standards would help greatly. If they exploit and abuse workers, they can't sell goods here.

That is the key to ending exploitation, & brining jobs back to America.

Worker rights, environmental standards MUST be added to ALL trade agreements. Not like the weak effort with NAFTA!!

TPP, and now a Euro trade deal are massive threats to workers all over the world.

All talk no action is why congress has such a low approval rating.

257 Foreign Free-Trade Zones in the USA to Aid in Deflating US Wages & Compensation. Did you see how US Corporations are selling shares of projects to the Chinese and how Chinese Investment have grown into Billions. Obviously, the Chinese Ownership of US Federal Debt give them tons of leverage and a Media Black Out. You guys should read up on this Next Threat.

I don't mind Individual Chinese Investment... And we have to admit foreign corporations started big investments or corporations in China like in the 19th Century also.

But if you think wages are low now, wait till we start applying for jobs in Chinese corporations in the USA. Foreign Free-Trade Zones seem to give an advantage to Asian or other low wage nations. This seems to be a threat to US Unions and US Wages. We have had off shoring ... next we will have US Executives selling off our Corporations for a "Fat Payday"

What is the Saying, "I won't be here when it Falls". Public and Private Executives have stupidly set us all up for collasping wages... Again.
