Story Of The Year So Far

Post by Doc on Thu Jan 17, 2013 3:13 am

Just read a brilliant piece on the BBC site, about an American worker earning c$600k per year as a software developer. He decided that life was good and only really wanted to spend his working day looking at cats on YouTube. So he outsourced his work to a Chinese company, and he paid them $50k per year for doing his job. he set up a virtual private network on his companies system, and just sent them stuff he was working on and had them send the finished work back to him via UPS, as the Chinese were given his access codes to be able to use UPS etc.

You have to hand it to the guy, because he got paid $550k for doing nothing and the Chinese 'employee' got $50k. He only got caught because his company thought someone was selling their secrets, so brought in auditors, who were gobsmacked to find what they did.

Anybody think Cameron may be outsourcing his job Laughing
