Resistance to outsourcing in the United States

In a major setback for the Indian IT industry when the US government reacted against outsourcing. The Indian IT industry has been a major provider of outsourcing services for American companies over the last decade.

Earlier in August, Ted Strickland, the Governor of Ohio state set a distrubing trend by passing and executive order to ban outsourcing of government projects and now last week Barack Obama, the President of US has indicated that he too is considering steps against the outsourcing. He said he was going to withdraw tax incentives of companies who outsource work that help create employment overseas (out of the US).

Two Union Ministers Kamalnath and Anand Sharma have reacted strongly to the developments in the field of outsourcing.
