With India (and a few other countries) you kind of have to consider the modest-sized middle-class separately from the vast poverty class.
India is a first world country for about 100 million and third world (or worse) for 1.1 billion. Some of the best hotels and restaurants Iíve ever patronized were in India.

It doesn't matter whether they paid them $9/hr or $30/hour. The reality with outsourcing work like that is there is always some level of language barrier and teamwork challenges due to the long distance and cultural differences. Combined it always results in a risk to the overall quality of work regardless of how skilled the technicians may be. Boeing didn't outsource because they would get better work. They outsourced because it was cheaper. That's the bottom line.

Not just Boeing. The entire American middle class jobs of the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and early 90s have been shipped overseas because of cost and the work done there is cheaper.
