Outsource your job to China!

January 17, 2013

One worker at a U.S. company outsourced his own job to China.  He paid a Chinese consulting firm 20% of his $250,000 salary to do his job for him. 

"Bob," as he is nicknamed, worked for a critical-infrasturcture company.  His fluency in several programming languages earned him a job writing code.  "His" work always received excellent remarks for being clean and well written.

He still showed up to work everyday, but spent it watching cat videos and surfing Reddit. 

Is this guy a slacker, or a genius? 

Would you ever outsource your job like "Bob"?

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
