Washington Gas wants to outsource hundreds of customer service jobs and fire the local workers who take gas leak and emergency calls, arrange for restoration of service, bill-paying, applications for utility assistance programs and ordering home service and repair.
Is this a good idea for American workers or American consumers?
Do we really want gas leak and emergency calls being handled by subcontractors as far away as India?
Don’t miss the latest update on how Washington Gas is risking consumer safety and even homeland security in order to outsource American jobs!

    Thanks Madfuq,
    Robber Barron era is a good description of some of it as well.
    Spme of these conservatives wish to conserve the dreamland ideal in their head of what they think once was. And that fantasy imaginedd is what their utopia must be saved.
    Example would be,
    ” It would sure be a heck of a lot easier if this were a dictatorship. of course only if I was the dictator, heh heh heh “,
    President George W. Bush

    Robt, you said it well it is a ideology and it feeds those who hold we lesser beings as worthless. It will destroy the middle class as well as those below the middle class. It is returning we the people to the robber baron era and it seems this is the full intent of this tactic.
    Those that hold to the belief we are discussing will never consider the American public and think we should have an elite class that rules over the masses. This thought process has happened in the past and there is nothing new in the thinking of those that espouse this ideology.

    I think its bad for any Corporation to take jobs from America. While the COE’s and Exec’s salaries continue to grow along with there life styles. I am the primary bread winner for my home, employeed with Washington Gas for 10yrs and if I lose my job with Washington Gas I will have to go on public assistance and will probly loss everything that I have accomplished while employeed there. What does this do to our economy?
