UPDATE: Please read the comments for Scheherazade’s response and
clarification. Ofcourse, I should have realized that she was talking
about Indians living abroad. But I’ve really had it up to here with the
"you’re stealing our jobs" crap, so I lost my intelligence a little
bit. My apologies.
Original Post: Stay of Execution has a post entitled "Legal Lies", in which she(?) "exposes" the truths about law school and the legal industry. Not a bad read. Here’s what really got my attention, though:
** We permit young associates to believe that they are somehow worth $125,000 a year, without knowing any law, even though there are smart, experienced, well-trained Indians who can do the same work, better, for far less.
I’m sorry. What’s that again? So Indians, who go to the same law schools, incur the same debt, would be willing to work for less than any other associate at a law school? Why? Because they’re Indian? Right. The call-center thing. Which is just the same as graduating from a law school with a professional degree.
So I should take a pay cut because I’m Indian. Gov. Rell, let me give you back some of my hard-earned income.
