India Signals Intent to Become Major Aviation Outsourcing Destination
Oh goody, we can look forward to the loss of Aerospace jobs now too? The more the merrier. But would the good folks at Boeing & other 'merica loving companies really ship jobs overseas? We think you already know the answer to that one.
But that isn't actually our point here. The following is: During his speech, India's Defense Minister may have slipped a little...
India's strategy for self reliance in aviation had boosted in-house research and development, and resulted in breakthroughs in the fields of advanced alloys, composites and aircraft equipment, Mukherjee told a gathering that included aviation industry representatives and top defence officials from 31 countries.Yes, good ol' self–reliance that depends on low wages. We used to do that here in 'merica too but then we had to pay folks a living wage... "self–reliance" what a hoot!
During the ministers speech, Pranab Mukherjee said that companies can take advantage of India's highly skilled workers and low wages.
Anyways, Welcome Aeronautics & aerospace workers to the ranks of the "old economy"!
