Bank of America's We-Don't-Need-No-Stinking-America Patent Application

from the how-nice-of-them dept

theodp writes "Americans are a real problem, explains Bank of America in a just-disclosed patent application for County Assessment. 'A typical American employee,' complains BofA, 'demands a high salary, good benefits, a good work environment, vacation time, and other job-related perks.' Such problems are solved with BofA's patent-pending methodology, which eliminates 'demanding work force' problems by identifying another country for a corporation to relocate its work force to."

    It's called international competition. While the tone of this makes it seem vile, it's a simple reality. Lower labor cost == lower product cost == happy consumer. Grant it, an unemployed consumer, but happy nonetheless. Get used to receiving less from your employer.

    Oh yeah, and if you can be replaced by someone who can barely speak english and only knows a small portion of your job, you might want to look long and hard out how important/relevant your job is and more importantly, how relevant you are.
