This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Adios Amigos... Now Leaving Las Colinas!

WashTech, CWA:
"Employees estimate that Microsoft is planning to eliminate at least 800 jobs in the next fiscal year at the company's Las Colinas facility outside of Dallas, Texas and shift the work offshore.

If this outsourcing goes as expected, it will be the largest one-time firing of full-time Microsoft employees - in the company’s history.

Lori Moore, Vice President of Microsoft Product Support Services (PSS), visited the Las Colinas site in April for a company-wide meeting to talk about fiscal year 2004 plans. The message, according to Poore, was exceedingly clear.

“It was an open forum and people were asking about Las Colinas expansion plans, but Moore was giving us the standard corporate bob-and-weave answers, clearly giving us the message that there were no plans for expansion or development of our site. She said that Microsoft would focus all of its efforts on India to position them for global expansion,” Poore said.

“The managers here are very clear - by the end of fiscal year 2004, our jobs will all be gone,” Poore said. "

Dallas, and Texas and general played the game the way it was supposed to be played, they passed generous legislation giving multi-millionaires nice bankruptcy protections on real estate, they got rid of the state income tax, they doled out millions in "economic incentives", including property tax abatements, they spent millions on infrastructure, passed "Right to Work" and they succeeded in luring jobs to Texas. For a while it worked. But the fickle favoratism of the corporate world lasts only as long as the handouts and incentives.
