Over the past decade, India has emerged as the leader in the global market for outsourced white-collar jobs—one reason for the nation's rapid economic growth. This Wide Angle case study explores the experiences of emerging Indian professionals who have been recruited into positions requiring long hours, late-night shifts, and Westernized work habits. The program reveals the human and cultural impact of a controversial yet essentially unstoppable global economic trend—examining its effect on Indian family life, on the evolving landscape of urban India, and on the aspirations and daily lives of young Indian citizens, especially women, as they enter the work force. In addition, anchor Daljit Dhaliwal discusses social, political, and economic development in India with Michael Elliott, editor of Time International. (56 minutes)
