A major video relay service (VRS) provider have decided recently at its board meeting to outsource all interpreters jobs overseas in India, effective in January, to increase their profit margin,  training them at low wages, without benefits. They are closing down all relay centers and giving out pink slips.  "Our videophones are manufactured in India, so it fit with our decision to move our headquarter there, it's an opportunity to expand our operations in a global economy," according to the CEO.  Its stocks soared on Wall Street upon the announcement.
