Axne pushes outsourcing accountability bill

“(Washington) — Iowa Congresswoman Cindy Axne wants accountability from companies sending jobs overseas.

The West Des Moines Democrat recently introduced the Outsourcing Accountability Act. Axne’s proposed legislation seeks to curb the practice of outsourcing American jobs by requiring publicly-traded companies to disclose in their annual report information on where employees are located by state and country. Speaking on KMA’s “Morning Line” program, Axne says the bill would force companies to be honest about outsourcing jobs to other countries”.
