India Outsourcers Burning Out

By Deane Barker on December 25, 2007

India’s outsourcing industry takes toll on workforce : Be careful what you wish for, Mumbai, you just might get it.

The job came with a good salary, and good perks.

But, 26-year-old Vaibhav Vats will tell you, it was doing him no good. His weight had grown to 265 pounds and he was missing out on social life as he worked long overnight hours at a call center. Eventually, he quit.

With the good, comes the bad, I suppose.
