FARMINGVILLE, N.Y.—The Tim Bishop for Congress campaign launched two ads across the district today.
The two ads, named “Business Is,” and “Fortune” highlight Randy Altschuler’s career as a job-destroying outsourcer. The ads use Altschuler’s own words to show how he spent a career teaching American companies how to send American jobs to places such as India.
“Every night when Randy Altschuler goes to sleep, he knows that if his investments do well, middle class families will be paying the price,” Congressman Tim Bishop said. “We need jobs on Long Island, not in India or other low wage countries.”
Randy Altschuler founded OfficeTiger in 1999, a corporation with the sole purpose of teaching companies how to outsource jobs in 1999. He later served on the board of directors of a similar corporation named GlobalLogic. According to Altschuler’s financial disclosure, he retains as much as $550,000 in investments in these two companies.
Congressman Bishop noted his work to stop companies that outsource from receiving government grants or loans. Bishop authored a piece of legislation with 138 bipartisan co-sponsors that would stop outsourcers from receiving government help and would also make call center employees disclose their location to U.S. consumers.
