IBM now has more workers in India than in America – reprise

IBM now employs 130,000 people in India – about a third of its total work force – and “well under 100,000 people at its American offices,” according to the New York Times.

(Image: ZDNet) Something isn’t right about Equifax’s data breach checker.
