More American Workers Outsourcing Own Jobs Overseas

Reminds me of this old one:
Did you hear the one about the programmer who outsourced his own job? I read about it on, the "news for nerds" Web site. A pseudonymous poster wrote, "About a year ago I hired a developer in India to do my job. I pay him $12,000 to do the job I get paid $67,000 for. He's happy to have the work. I'm happy that I only have to work 90 minutes a day, talking code. My employer thinks I'm telecommuting. Now I'm considering getting a second job and doing the same thing."
Not sure if it was real, but sure seemed like a good idea.
