That's great ,but you must type in jobs at I B M. they are shacking people in America and moving there jobs to India. As an American how can you defend that, not that America is alone in doing this.

Not all IBM jobs are going to India.

My brother was a computer programmer with IBM for 20+ years, but got his pink slip on April Fool's Day two years ago.

At first, his whole department thought it was an April Fools prank, but as it turned out, it was not!

IBM shut down his entire department (5000 jobs) and moved it to Brazil.

They then offered him a new position for half the pay somewhere in the middle of Iowa . . . which he turned down.

He lives in the mountains overlooking Lake Tahoe, California . . . so Iowa wasn't on his list of favorite places to relocate to!

I hope that your brother likes the view from the mountains.
