    Hmm… leaving IBM is starting to seem more likely for me…

    Billing only 40 hours and providing 60-80 of work is actually illegal in the US. The US government should look into this. IBM is cooking the books on both sides of the ledger, and now they are screwing the employees directly too. What a great company. American business at its finest.

    • True, but somehow IBM has avoided investigation of this scandal and associated prosecution for years. Obama, of course, was not treated nicely by Palmisano in the campaign so maybe the wheels of the rusty and political Holder DOJ might actually move this time? IMHO, they passed all their qui tam criminal and financial liabilities prior to 2001 with the sale of the federal unit to Loral, along with an old IBM executive mafia to make sure it was even more unlikely for it to boomerang for Armonk.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell
