Abstract: In the popular press as well as scholarly circles, there are heated debates on the socio-economic consequences that offshoring bears for home countries. We have heard a lot about cost saving through lower wages, efficiency gains, and price reductions, as well arguments around hidden coordination costs, risks of intellectual property theft, and job losses onshore. When it comes to employees, however, we know very little about the attitudes that those who work in offshoring arrangements on day to day basis hold towards the transfer of tasks to offshore destinations.
