Strategy For An American IT Consultant In An Offshore World


Ant vs. TurkeyWith all these “prestigious” names in Information Technology doing all they can to monopolize our IT Consulting Industry…….while driving down the Consultants hourly rates…….and……shipping  as many jobs as they can offshore…it’s enough to drive one crazy!!!

Driving the effort to Offshore jobs is the fact that an American corporation can offshore jobs to individuals that are not subject to Federal, State, Social Security taxes and the employer does not have to pay matching Social Security and Medicare taxes, as well as, avoid paying Unemployment insurance.  These offshore resources are then used to support operations in the USA, that if supported locally, will be burden by the associated costs of taxation.  This tax evasion could not be perpetuated without the participation of all of our Government regardless of political stripes.  It is not important to the IT Consultant why is this happening, but the need to face the reality that it is happening.

Those that claim that this is free enterprise let us assume for argument sake that in order to level the field of competition…. from now on all Americans are exempt from taxation.  Obviously this is not a satisfactory proposal, but that is what the Outsourcers believe except that this “American tax exemption” is only for offshore resources.

Peningo’s solution to this problem is to bypass these “Prestigious Ones” and with the support of Peningo Systems Inc, contract directly between the Consultant and the End Client, thus, eliminating these ”Prestigious Ones” excessive Mark-ups and allowing for increased compensation for the Consultant while lowering the costs for the End Client.

Peningo seeks to join with the individual Consultants and the End Client together to reverse this trend by cutting out these “Prestigious Ones”,   Let us fight back by Outsourcing the Outsourcers!!

“One Ant can not take down a Turkey but thousands of Ants can”

Peningo advocacy is concentrated in the IT Industry and within that for that segment of the market that provides advance software support and development.  For the larger market of Americans who are besiege by a similar problem we invite them to join our Grass Roots movement to change the minds of our Government and the CEOs of American corporations who are engaging in blind Offshore “selves flagellation”

Many of our Representatives are not leaders, they only follow trends and it is up to us to create a new trend.
