Man reportedly outsources own job to China
It’s a worst-case scenario for most employees: There’s someone in China who can do your job quickly, efficiently and for about one-fifth of your salary, and your boss absolutely loves his work.
But one U.S. software developer turned this nightmare on its head and actually benefited from outsourcing, a report says. That’s because, unbeknownst to his bosses, he hired a Chinese developer to do his job, allowing him to take home impeccable performance reviews while actually spending the day watching cat videos and shopping on eBay.
According to Andrew Valentine, who works on the Verizon Risk Team investigating data breaches, the employee, whom Valentine calls “Bob,” had pulled off the stunt for some time, allowing him to relax and earn a good salary while someone in China did his job for him.
