No more called as cheap labour.

Anything relevant to Indian netizen will awaken my curiosity instantly. But I suppose it is only too natural.

For long, I too have heard about the available 'cheap labour' in India and in other Asian countries and grimaced at the wrong word. But I never thought of expressing my protest through blogs.

I happen to read an article on this by Adwait Joshi in 'ere' blog network.
He has raised this question based on the following fact.

Question:
"Would you still call India "cheap labor" country"?

Argment:
"For past few years, India as moved up the value chain. Instead of just being a staff augment provider, we have forayed in Outsourced Product Development (OPD). Instead of just being a system integrator, we have set up R & D shops for global companies and contributed to it. We have enhanced our technical expertise over the time more than the US counter parts".

He concluded like this:
"I might have settled for "Affordable Labor" couple of years back. But today, we are expensive, not for ourselves only, but for the MNC's also".
