American, yes I guess we still count southern as Americans
Just to let you know, doing grammar or spelling policing here can get you tossed off. Not being ugly, just knowing.
for AMERICAN workers. In case you have not noticed, America is having a Depression. AMERICAN JOBS FOR AMERICAN WORKERS. I wish you well in your search, but not with an American company.
In all fairness, the American people need jobs.
This post and the post about your as successful as you allow yourself to be (with near 10% unemployment, 15% unemployment in my town) should be read with a grain of salt.
American businesses are in it for profit, no secret there. But lets not feel guilty about them sending us into the unemployment line and critizing their decisions is just nonsense.
The poster is trying to make us feel happy for MDI and bad for us for not having a parade with balloons for the decision. ::eye roll::
Canada has added jobs and when I read this along with Canada's leadership not allowing the country to become a patsy to predator lending, and this is what you should be saying about your country and not do what you have to do business community - I'll be fine without a job. lol
Diskriter offshores in a huge way, which means privacy is compromised and American jobs are lost
Stop the carnage and quit working for these companies! Protect your own interests!
Helping each other
Well here we go again. Let anyone ask something here and they get a snotty reply. Instead of this being a site of help from fellow MTs we get the ones who think they know everything and the person asking for help is stupid. Perhaps I do not speak English. I said someone posted here about it being a requirement of the US DOL that you be able to verify the method you were being paid by. That person also listed the link to DOL at that time. At that time I did not need that info, now I do. So, I was hoping one of my fellow MTs might know the address/link at US DOL for verifying this information so that I could show it to Human Resources when the time came. I did not say I needed the address to US DOL. If you have nothing to contribute, that is fine, then please do not make smart comments. Telling me to quit is really ignorant, in fact, you sound like you are in Human Resources instead of a lowly working peasant MT like me.
you're not helping....
I was not IC, simply helping out
my local hospital when it was swamped with work, and agreed to help, at $1 per dictated minute. WONDERFUL $$; I could type off at least $130-$140 a day, and over 20 minutes an hour. It really is worth it, but ask for at least $1 per dictated minute.
AMERICANS NEED TO KNOW
Agree with you wholeheartedly. Need to start making Senior Citizens and Boomers aware. Go to AARP and scream about it. We need to find out the best way to make Seniors aware of all the facts, especially in places like FL - they have a huge voting block. Any suggestions on ways to do this, ways that we can all help?????
Americans are bad too
Here is the problem. If American MTs were perfect there would be no competition. I've edited Indians and Americans and some Americans are great!!! But some are just as bad as Indians.
So why shouldn't the MTSO outsource, pay an Editor to clean the mess and keep the change. I don't agree with it but that's the way it is. I think it's horrible. The pay should be better for the good Americans, that's all.
not my regular account - just helping out
If you email me, I will help. I am helping with staffing a few of the sm
new accounts. Are you clinic or HIM or rad? There are at least 2 new accounts of each.
I am wondering why her school isn't helping her. nm
Helping people to understand who they are. sm
All they have to do is set up the world central bank and everything they need for one world government will be in place. The video Money Masters is the best one to watch, but it is long, or Fiat Empire. I think they are available on You Tube. We gave these out for the Ron Paul campaign. This is why he wants to end the Fed and go back to the gold standard.
Here is a shorter video that explains who they are and what is going on. It is called Monopoly Men.
All this info is helping me decide nm
We are having a hard enough time helping ourselves
What makes you so special?
Any MT Companies that have only Americans?
Any companies in the US that hire and keep their American workers and do not outsource to India? How about Spheris? Anything?
No Indians in MA u think? Thought maybe they had a few helping there. I'm a rookie outside of my
Glad to see you day guys helping out on the weekend. nm
If you don't mind helping out India with their overflow - sm
I worked for them last summer and it was somewhat of a bait and switch they pulled on me. Originally, I was working on one platform with tons of dictations and then all of a sudden, where did they go? Then they switched platforms and were told that we needed to help out India with their backlog. I saw RED!!!! They outsourced our jobs over there and now we were expected to help them out??? They are the reason why we get paid diddly over here. Maybe by now it has changed, but that was my experience. You decide for yourself.
I did some work ON MY TIME helping them and Rebecca never paid me either.
Bad way to run a company.
not sure of the exact # but there are more Indians than Americans
Indian MTs also pay much less to take the test than Americans do. nm
It is a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act
to ask any health or disability-related questions (including to see your medical records) until a definite, firm offer has been MADE. If this occurring, I would recommend the person it is happening to call any disability rights lawyer, who would take it in a heartbeat.
I think you are right, but if us Americans jumped ship as soon as
it gets rocky, they would sink, but we hang on and on and wait for it to get better and then it doe not!
I have heard that some savvy Americans are moving
If Americans are a little thin-skinned and anxious right now, (sm)
it's certainly not without good reason! All of us, either directly or indirectly, have been affected by offshoring of ALL American work.
Americans have been working in Saudi Arabia
for a very very long time. Where you been?
you would live in a security compound with all Americans around you...sm
not in the Arabian desert on a camel!
Read the manual!
Americans edit Indian work, never Indians
I was asked to sign something that said I would not tell that I edited Indian work. I would not sign that. Indians cannot edit Indian work.
Americans have to do it.
Focus Infomatics uses Indians to edit Americans' work
They do make mistakes. But if you point it out to them, at least they are willing to learn, they don't get all huffy like Americans do, and the Americans should have better grammar, etc. in the first place!
Toyota factories are in the U.S. and hire a large % of americans, my sibling works in ...sm
motor assembly division, and has never worked for a more respecting, generous and thoughtful company. Anyone who thinks buying a Toyota makes them guilty of buying a foreign made car, this is certainly not true now days! They are right here in the US and have one of the most dependable, long-lasting vehicle on the road. I think your analogy was a little off-base with all due respect. Have a good day!
By chance, are these people calling "non-Americans" I worked for a company
who shall remain nameless but their supervisors were in India and would IM me constantly to do a STAT. Even though, I would try tellin them I was not working that day or that I was going somewhere. They continued to ask. It was bizarre. I kept think, what part of English DONT you understand..NO..I thought meant the same everywhere. They are just the only poeple I have dealt with that just doesnt comprehend rejection of any sort, but that's just me.
Cherrypicking is when you work from a pool of jobs and being able to reject the worst jobs to those
Monster Jobs and Career Builder usually have a few path jobs. nm
Don't think any do except for those in-house jobs. Some QA jobs are paid hourly. nm
They didn't take our jobs, QT gave them our jobs. The account is now
back in the hands of US MTs, or will be in just a couple of weeks.
Are MTs that are looking for jobs finding good jobs right now with everyone looking or is it
getting more difficult to find a good job. I am most interested in jobs for experienced MTs with more than 10 years service. I wonder if it is better to put a resume on or just keeping applying or what is the best way to go about this.
Look at all the jobs on the jobs boards.
You can find a job and won't have to apply for unemployment. You would be surprised how many companies need qualified MTs! Go get 'em and get 'em now!
Don't wait until the 11th hour. Too many needs to put your hat in the unemployment slot.
What they lost is our gain.
Your right - I posted and I am American. Read the book - The Worls is Really Flat - grow up. This is a busines that Sally Struthers advertises to unemployed people in the middle of the day - Learn to be a medical Transcriptionist ...
I believe that rasism is bad. The people on this site are off balance. They believe that ONLY Americans can do this work. They believe that because someone was born in another country - they are a lesser person. How sad and small - it is the very thing that will kill the business for Americans. MTSOs understand that they provide a great living for people in India. Indian companies provide health insurance, paid time offf, transporation to and from work, and free meals. Do American MTSOs provide ANY of this?
meant appreciate that, oops
Yes, you got it - American men do same.....NM
American MTs: Is this job for you? This little paragraph should go in all their job ads.
And yes, we do outsource, to India, to the Philippines and we have American MTs. Our overseas MTs don't complain about having to work, they don't ask for time off every other day, they don't have excuses for not turning in their work within TAT and several of them produce client ready work. Our offshore MTs pride themselves in their work and turn in the best quality they can, unlike a few of the American MTs we’ve had that turn in less than perfect work, don’t take direction and refuse to change bad habits, and ask for more work just to make more money.

Gee you are a foreigner...you are not an American...so should American companies not hire you because you are taking the American dollars away from Americans? Would you feel the same way about hiring British MTs or French MTs?
No, he IS American. Which is of course (nm)
Are you American?
They took American and MT out of their name...
That about sums it up! I guess they can take our money for their self-serving agenda, but don't expect them to use American or MT in their name anymore. Thanks for NOTHING Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity. What a joke you always have been and still are....
Well, no WONDER you can't get American
Of course, don't think for a minute that INDIAN MTs don't read these boards. So now THEY know what kind of an employer you are, too! I hope one of them gets ahold of a sensitive medical record of YOURS someday, and holds it for ransom like that Pakistani MT did, and sells your SS#.
Are you American? If not, why don't you go to
the board in your own country? If you are American, then why not do something about helping Americans get jobs? Can you answer these questions?
A company from Maine wants to hire me (if I pass their testing). THing is, they hardly discussed a thing with me about anything. THey only want to pay me 7-8 cents per line, but promise to provide me with the computer and all supplies that I need. I dont want to invest alot of time studying and stuff if they decide not to pay me or send the stuff. They only have one other canadian working for them as an IC (they pay american MTs really well as employees with benefits). Just seems kind of odd to me. THey are called Northeastern Transcription anyhow. I wish i could find a good company to work for that pays decent are and nice to work for. Me and hubby are both out of work presently!!

CHRISTMAS IS AMERICAN
When in Rome, do as the Romans do. Majority rules here in America. MOST people celebrate Christmas in this country. If I were in a Japanese country I would expect to see oriental things all over the place and if I were in Israel, I would expect to see Hannukah all over. What is wrong with people? The world has gone totally nuts.
