Outsourcing to an Indian Jail
This doesn’t seem like the best idea:
Authorities in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh are planning to set up an outsourcing unit in a jail.
The unit will employ 200 educated convicts who will handle back office operations like data entry, and process and transmit information.
It’s not necessarily a bad idea, as long as misusable information isn’t being handled by the criminals.
The unit, which is expected to undertake back-office work for banks, will work round the clock with three shifts of 70 staff each.
Okay, definitely a bad idea.
Working in the unit will also be financially rewarding for the prisoners.
