blog We can’t help but be amused by this article in New Zealand’s premiere business newspaper, the National Business Review. In it, veteran technology reporter Chris Keall lampoons an email received by subscribers of the Australian Financial Review, in which the paper’s editor in chief Michael Stutchbury laments IBM Australia’s decision to send jobs offshore, including to New Zealand. Keall’s reaction?
“Australia’s pain is New Zealand’s gain. IBM won’t be the first to move jobs eastward across the Tasman. The Australian Financial Review itself moved subediting jobs to the cheaper environs of NZ. Heinz moved 300 jobs from Queensland and Australia to Hastings, iiNet (Australia’s largest independent ISP) has moved part of its call centre operation to NZ, and the CEO Vocus, which last year bought NZ ISP Maxnet, tells NBR ONLINE his company is looking at building data centres here – in part because labour is cheaper, but mostly because of our cheaper electricity.”
