"Dell CEO Michael Dell said Monday the company would employ 20,000 people in India in the next three years, doubling the current headcount of 10,000"

At current levels of 10,000 employees and 5 million units sold in India, that would be 500 computers per year per employee, which is less than two per day per employee. They must work for peanuts and curry.

They are paid about 20% of what it would cost to pay an American but it is still more pay than many of their parents make. These jobs are highly competitive as well with thousands of qualified applicants for each position. For a young, college educated Indian, landing an "outsourced" job with an American company is akin to winning the lottery.
