Ha ha ha ha!  The extent of IBM's outsourcing is finally coming out and fully exposed because it is counter to Trump's agenda of "Buy American, Hire American".  It will be interesting to see what happens with them when the US becomes more attractive to companies that want to do business here due to lower tax rates.

Thanks for posting this article.

I wonder why we give companies like this carte blanche. If a company benefits from our country it should also contribute back. Firing most of your U.S. employees and moving your company to another country does not constitute contributing, IMHO.

IBM is one of those companies that are now "multi-national".  They have no country, they just go with the cheapest labor and where the tax laws favor them.

Trump's America First agenda, "Buy American and Hire American" is enticing to companies like IBM now because they can get a good deal, but I'm not sure they will enjoy the same status they once had in America.  I think his agenda favors companies that are pro-America.

If anything CNN will say how great it is and that Americans are incompetent.
