A Bill was re-introduced in the US Congress to make companies that move call centres overseas ineligible for grants or guaranteed loans from the Government. The Bill was re-introduced today by Congressmen Gene Green from the Democratic Party and Republican David McKinley.
The Congressmen, David McKinley said the number one priority in the Congress is to protect and create American jobs. He said the bill does not mandate that companies keep call centres in America, but simply says if they move call centre jobs offshore, they do not receive funding from the Government.
The other introducer, Gene Green said call centre jobs moved overseas to India, the Philippines, and other countries and it is important that American workers continue to have access to good service sector jobs and receive a livable wage.
