Submission + - IBM may outsource 3/4 of it's permanent workforce (

hoggoth writes: MISH'S Global Economic Trend Analysis blog has an article up about IBM "crowdsourcing" away 3/4 of their workforce. The deal sounds something like this: "Employee, you will be doing the same work for us, except you won't be an employee, when it's slow in between projects you won't get paid, you won't get a pension, and you won't get health benefits." Being in I.T. just keeps getting better.

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
