American Employee Caught Outsourcing His Job To China

According to the article at

A developer at a US-based critical infrastructure company, referred to as "Bob", was caught last year outsourcing his work to China, paying someone else less than one fifth of his six-figure salary to do his job. As a result, Bob had a lot of time on his hands; in fact, during the investigation, his browsing history revealed this was his typical work day:
  • 9:00 a.m. – Arrive and surf Reddit for a couple of hours. Watch cat videos.
  • 11:30 a.m. – Take lunch.
  • 1:00 p.m. – Ebay time.
  • 2:00 – ish p.m Facebook updates – LinkedIn.
  • 4:30 p.m. – End of day update e-mail to management.
  • 5:00 p.m. – Go home.

And the question is, what was he doing wasting his time on LinkedIn?
He had a six-figure salary at a job where he did almost nothing else all day, but surf the internet.
Was he seriously looking for something better than that?!

In any case, instead of cat videos, the guy should have watched a few of the Onion News Network videos. It would have been time well spent and that is because here we have a case of life imitating... internet comedy.

As you'll see below, the Onion News Network had "reported" on a similar a situation nearly four years ago.
