Infosys, a global leader in consulting, technology and next-generation services, announced it will establish its U.S. Education Center in Indianapolis to train American workers and arm them with skills for the digital future.

The Local NBC affiliate, WTHR, DOES NOT EVEN MENTION IT, and has no story about it on their website.
Wow.... Such times that we live in now. 20 years ago, could you have even imagined the press would be so completely biased??
Infosys will use Indian H1B’s.
Isn’t Infosys an Indian company?
Only AMERICAN labor!
That absolutely should be part of the deal.
Enough H1B’s already.
Yes, Indian company.
If Trump is not re-elected in 2020 they’ll go back to the old model and pull the plug on this.
I work in the building Infosys is currently occupying. I feel you are probably correct in your assumption
I could see they were in danger of digressing to this point, but few would have believed me if I predicted this.
Honestly, I didn’t ever think it could be this bad.
It’s shocking. (and pure evil)
Workers at Pravda were forced to do what today’s Leftists do by choice in the United States.
Infosys is 100% Indian out of Bangalore and they hate Americans, or at least they did back when I had to test their bad code back in 2010 at State Street Corp. Bad news for US born STEM professionals. Hope i’m wrong.
I know of no American who has ever been hired by Infosys.
If it’s Infosys then you can bet that most of those jobs will be H-1Bs.
I don’t know.
It could be America is used generically in this case. Such as “workers in America”.
Sounds like it, to me.
Assuming your assumption is right, any job stationed in US is better than same jobs in India using internet to outsource. Because every job in US creates 3 to 4 times peripheral benefits to the local economy.

Bingo!!! Give the man a seegar! No more callers, please, we have a winner.
I declined a job in Indy a few years back. Too many H1Bs. I felt I was just being offered to have a local face for customers.
And also takes a job from a U.S. citizen.
You are assuming that. You have no evidence presented except conjecture.
So you would prefer the work be outsourced to India instead? If the job is on US soil, the employee pays federal, state & sales taxes. And buys food & housing & other retail items in American stores. That is a significant benefit to local economy.
This is so simple to understand, I am shocked the economics goes right over your head.
