USAID training foreign workers for English-speaking jobs.... USAID IS NOT JUST FOR FOOD AID !!!!

While the president has been urging “insourcing,” the government has been sending money to the Philippines to train foreign workers for jobs in English-speaking call centers.

According to New York Democratic Rep. Tim Bishop and North Carolina  Republican Rep. Walter Jones, this is unacceptable and “shocking.” The pair are calling on the United States Agency for International  Development (USAID) to immediately suspend what is known as the Job Enabling  English Proficiency (JEEP) program. According to Jones’ office, in 2010, after the two men compelled USAID to end  a similar training program in Sri Lanka, the agency assured the congressmen that  they would “conduct a review to ensure the project will not take any jobs away  from Americans.”

In a letter to the USAID administrator, Rajiv Shah, Bishop and Jones  expressed their displeasure at learning of the effort they thought the agency  had explicitly promised against. “I believe it was reasonable to conclude from that statement that your  agency’s outsourcing training program was terminated, particularly in light of  President Obama’s ‘insourcing’ initiative announced earlier this year,” the pair  wrote. “Therefore, I was shocked to learn that USAID has used taxpayer dollars  to invest in outsourcing training programs in the Philippines at the expense of  American workers.”.

According to Bishop, more than 4.5 million Americans currently work in call  centers, but since 2007 more than 500,000 call center jobs have been outsourced  to foreign countries.
