Are You ready to work in IT in India?

Are you ready to work in IT in India?

Here's a web page for one Bangalore company that used to be all U.S. jobs. -- www.indeed.co.in/cmp/Allstate-Solutions-Private-Limited/salaries

If my currency conversions are correct, the listed salaries range from roughly $2,000 to $8,000 US dollars.

Here's thoughtful article entitled  WILL US TECH JOBS TURN ALL-INDIAN  --

And an article from 5 years ago that confirms that U.S. IT employment is shrinking due to offshoring --

I've heard it's de-facto impossible for a foreigner to get an employment visa to allow them to work in India. The only way it is allowed is if they are a manager at IBM and IBM is establishing an office there to hire Indians. Then one manager will be allowed. But if you are the actual tech guy you'll never get a visa to work at a firm based in India under any circumstances.

The way the US allows immigration is not the way most of the rest of the world does it. Out of 200+ countries in the world, in at least 175 of them they will never let a foreigner come in and take a job there, other than certain extremely narrow niches, like teaching english, or managing at a US company that is outsourcing to that country.

Oh shyte. I misread the labels. I initially read 4,18,533  as 4,18x,533  thinking it ended up being 29K/year - I knew something was wrong, while of course it's more like 3K/year.

They do not deal in thousands like in US, but in a different denomination which explains the way it's spelled out.

Oh what a glorious shythole.
Brawndo. It's got what plants crave.

Great point.

I bet we're one of very few countries in the world where our policies encourage companies to deprive our citizens of jobs.
