My husband is the Manager of an Oracle Department and he also does internal tech support and after he implements 11i this year guess where his job is going? India! So his co-worker, who already works 10-12 salaried hours a day will end up doing his tech support work b/c it sure can't be done from India. So suddenly her job will be what? 15 hours a day?
