States Outsourcing Jobs, Too

This really shocked me. Hard to believe, I know. But it did.

Via MSNBC and The Charlotte Observer:

Truth be told, NBC’s call to the Georgia food stamp office was answered in India — as in the country of some 9,000 miles away.


Private companies do the most outsourcing, but the Charlotte Observer newspaper found 40 state governments send jobs overseas too.
Our tax dollars may be helping to send jobs offshore when they should be helping our local communities. This is... an outrage. I can't think of another word that does this justice.

I can't find any reference to this article on the Observer website so I don't know if there was a list of states doing this. I did find this related article.
