Our site just received some bad news. Our client is pulling out of our Manila site, and is transferring business in Cebu.
This reminds me of the film Outsourced. It gives us a humorous take on life at a call center. Towards the end of the movie, The call center's client pulled out and was to transfer operations to China where labor is cheaper. This is the same scenario where my colleagues are in; our Cebu counterparts are getting the job for their labor is cheaper.
The movie provides a lighthearted glimpse at how easy it is to lose jobs. It's characters accepted the news casually. In reality, I couldn't do the same. I just couldn't.
