Just looking at that average salaries comparison
The annual salary of a software developer in the U.S. is $94,000. In India, it is $14,000, and in the Philippines it is $7,521.
... and it just confirms and reiterates what most of us have always suspected (actually believed) outsourcing to be - despite all the self serving and duplicitous arguments in favor of it. It only ever served the companies at a superficial level and has been to the overall detriment to service standards, quality and, above all, the displacement and redundancy of highly qualified, Western I.T professionals, for the most part.
This many years down the track, with the U.S and most Western economies waning and flailing, it's clear the chicken truly has come home to roost.
The old addage is true then - especially in the case of Outsourcing: "You pay peanuts, you get monkeys."
