"The majority of the employees are customer service representatives, who will be offered the opportunity to accept similar positions at other call centers throughout the country. If these employees choose to take advantage of this offer, they will receive a $10,000 relocation package. If they do not, they will receive a severance package." Sounds fair, don't know if it really is or not without details.

I wonder if these jobs are being outsourced to India. This is a national problem. I say tax companies that do this. Rick Perry doesn't care. Idiots in Texas continue to keep this guy in office. Now the whole world knows since he went out on the campaign trail to run in the GOP primaries that there are idiots in Texas that voted for this guy as their governor. Perry is delusional. He mentioned he would run again. I believe he loves being in the media. He doesn't realize that the rest of the country thinks he is a joke. The world knew he wouldn't never be anything other than a governor in Texas. People in Texas love George Bush, so much they probably thought he was from Texas. Idiots didn't know he is from a New England state.
