Filed under "Your Tax Dollars At Work":

"Despite President Obama's pledge to retain more hi-tech jobs in the U.S., a federal agency run by a hand-picked Obama appointee has launched a $22 million program to train workers, including 3,000 specialists in IT and related functions, in South Asia.

"Following their training, the tech workers will be placed with outsourcing vendors in the region that provide offshore IT and business services to American companies looking to take advantage of the Asian subcontinent's low labor costs.

"Under director Rajiv Shah, the United States Agency for International Development will partner with private outsourcers in Sri Lanka to teach workers there advanced IT skills like Enterprise Java (Java EE) programming, as well as skills in business process outsourcing and call center support. USAID will also help the trainees brush up on their English language proficiency. "

USAID! I knew it! Remeber way back when when USAID was taken over by an Indiot I said he'd be using the gov't to funnel U.S. taxpayer dollars to India? Well here you go. Indians are all corrput. They see the U.S. as a huge pot of gold and scheme endless ways to rip off America. No wonder we're going broke - India is robbing us.

U.S. taxpayers funding the training of ANOTHER country's workforce. That's worse than bailing out the banksters!
