The Truth about Randy Altschuler's OfficeTiger

Altschuler may be “offended” by increased scrutiny on his outsourcing past, but the middle class families he put out of work deserve much more than his feigned outrage.

When it comes to American jobs, actions speak louder than words. I’ve fought to save thousands of Long Island jobs at places such as Brookhaven National Laboratory and Gabreski Airport, and while Randy Altschuler is “offended” by criticism of his creation and leadership of OfficeTiger, it is important for voters to know Altschuler’s record of outsourcing American jobs. 

Altschuler seized every opportunity he could to brag about his outsourcing prowess and even accepted an award for leading the outsourcing of American jobs. Don’t just take my word for it, read about OfficeTiger yourself.

OfficeTiger referred to itself as “The next-generation of outsourcing,” on its website. [Source]

From the OfficeTiger homepage (in 2005): “OfficeTiger’s vision is to change the way the world does business by leading the new generation of industry-focused, judgment-based Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) solutions. Our mission is to be the best and largest diversified industry-focused BPO services provider, both onsite and offshore, offered from anywhere in the world, on the bedrock of our four business process outsourcing principles: Meritocracy, Integrity, Accountability, Commitment to our clients.” [Source]

OfficeTiger co-founder and co-CEO Joseph Sigelman said he hoped to lead the move of white-collar jobs from the U.S. [Source]

In a letter Altschuler wrote for Princeton publication Major Choices, he called OfficeTiger “One of the earliest companies providing high-end outsourcing services in India to major American and European companies.” [Source]

In 2005, Altschuler accepted an award on behalf of OfficeTiger saying, “It is so great being recognized for the innovation we bring to front line professional outsourced services. Over the years the outsourcing market has evolved greatly. As it continues to evolve, we look forward to providing our clients with more brainpower, deeper thought, and judgment-dependent analysis very few providers can match.” [Source]

The Financial Times said business is “roaring” at OfficeTiger in an article publicized by OfficeTiger itself. [Source]

The Financial Times said OfficeTiger’s merger with R.R. Donnelley would create a BPO “Beast.” [Source]

The Economic Times also highlighted OfficeTiger’s role in outsourcing. [Source]

This is typical Randy Altschuler. A few years ago, he was quick to brag about his success in moving American jobs to India. Now that he is running for office, he’s doing everything he can to hide his disastrous record on jobs—showing once again, he will say or do anything for a vote. Altschuler may be “offended” by increased scrutiny on his outsourcing past, but the middle class families he put out of work deserve much more than his feigned outrage.

Bishop outsourced our children's money to workers in foreign countries. "The “American Recovery Act” exposes Bishop and his fellow legislators as clueless. Recalling they voted almost one trillion of our dollars to create an economic “Stimulus”, it’s critical to consider the following: All those “shovel ready” jobs touted by Congressman Bishop proved to be (according to Mr. Obama himself) “not as shovel ready as we expected.” Apparently China and Spain had no such problem putting our dough right to work. Roughly 40% of the money used in this “Stimulus” had to be borrowed. China, a major holder of our debt, is now getting interest on taxpayer money, being put in the pockets of Chinese breadwinners. Because there is no plan to pay back any of this loan, our children and grandchildren will continue paying credit-card-like, interest only, on cash used to create jobs in rival economies." http://www.independentsentinel.com/2012/09/outsourcer-congressman-tim-bishop/

Nobody is cutting off your VA benefits Stop the lies. Democrats put in a poison pill in the bill by not allowing amendments so it would not violate the budget control act. Dems set up a show vote so people like you could go on these posts and conflate all the issues. I billion dollar cost would of grown the bureaucracy and done very little to help Veterans get a job. There are already 6 jobs programs for veterans if those need to be tweaked lets look at that. How is not commenting on legislation in the Senate some sort of a indictment of Randy? You paint with a broad brush. I hate these smears by insinuation. http://paulryan.house.gov/issues/issue/?IssueID=12226 P.S. I am a veteran too so thank you for your service but you don't get a pass for lying. Since we both took an oath and wore the uniform than I would think you would be a bit more concerned for the future of our country. Don't support tax and spend democrats that put up poison pill legislation just so they can rope you into a talking point. (assuming you really are a veteran and not just some sorosbot pretending to be a veteran. Korean war huh? If you were 20 at the end of the Hostilities in 1953 that would make you about 79 right? How was your potato crop this year? Any problems with blight?)
