Call Centre jobs in India are facing a major threat from the Americans. Citizens of America have started protesting that they are facing unemployment because these jobs are offered to international employees. Reports say that a bill has been presented in the Senate to forbid outsourcing jobs from landing in the hands of foreigners.

According to the Institute of Communication Workers of America, India leads in having the most number of Call Centre jobs followed by Philippines. A survey conducted by the National Association of Softwares and Services Companies revealed that the income generated by these companies in India is about 1, 87,600 crores.

The Institute of Progressives for Immigration Reforms requested that the government stay vigil on the issue of H1-B Visas. ‘ The jobs of Americans are illegally passed on to foreign individuals at cheaper salaries.’ They stated. The institute demanded that the jobs must be returned to Americans and this can only be done if the process of issuing H1-B visas is made stricter.
