Most of my viewers know I subscribe to Netflix. I love the service and have been using it for almost a year. It’s far more cheaper than cable or satellite TV series. For the amount of TV I do watch, it’s a great deal.
This series is on Netflix. In one episode called “Outsourcing”. A man journeys to India. His programming position was outsourced. For 30 days, he experied India Culture and the boom of employment through call centres.
I know myself, I stopped using Bell Canada due to outsourcing of the call centres due to language and procedural breakdowns that happened with my account. I’m fortunate because where I live there is an independent phone and internet service provider.
Essentially, I firmly believe that the phone operators did not record my requests and being on hold for up to an hour is too lengthy and outrageous. Though Bell deemed me in fault and it was my responsibility to ensure my operator knows what I am requesting, I felt there is too much responsibility on the consumer to ensure what you are asking someone who is speaking English as a second language is unfair. It is your responsibility to ask to be transferred to another person if you feel the operator isn’t understanding your language, situation or other.
In my dealings with many of the individuals at the call centre. I knew immediately it wasn’t their fault. They like anyone in this world need a job to survive and they are doing the best they can.
In the episode of 30 Days by Martin Spurlock. I got a glimpse of the call centres and procedures the people must go through. They work at night time while we are experiencing our normal business day. The citizens are loving the job opportunities to build up their own standard of living. They are essentially trying to do what we do here. We are equal in the struggle to make ends meat.
While the main character of the documentary feels sorry for the families and thinks it’s worth losing his job because his one job in America is able to employ about 16 people in India, I question internally and mentally struggle with this concept.
After seeing this documentary, I question post secondary education. Many students are taking high loans to get through. Will there be a job which they are training for in the years to come? Great jobs advertised such as computer technologies and etc are being outsourced and will be continue to be more and more.
We are all looking to save money. We shop at stores where the prices are low. We know stores are importing products and the middle man/retail store is making a nice size profit.
I just wonder if we are really saving money because the way it’s going, yes we are saving money now… but will we have a decent job in the years to come?
