"Randy Altschuler" Outsourcing American Jobs.

I am a voter who always want to be well informed, I cannot avoid the Election ads on my Television in Long Island. I did not know much about Randy Altschuler so I did some research through Google and went to Wikipedia. I am now well informed about Randy Altschuler and extremely respectful of his achievements but Randy could not get my vote first as a Long Islander and then an American.
Randolph "Randy" Brody Altschuler (born December 8, 1970) is an American businessman and politician. He was the Republican Party candidate for Congress in New York's 1st Congressional District in 2010. Altschuler is currently running for Congress from New York's 1st Congressional District for the second time after his slim loss in 2010.
In 1999, Randy Altschuler and Princeton classmate Joseph Sigelman started Office Tiger, a business process outsourcing company (BPO) that performs back office support services for American companies.As of July 2005, Business Week magazine reported that Office Tiger was the only successful start-up in India’s outsourcing industry owned and managed by U.S. entrepreneurs.

With RR Donnelley acquisition of Office Tiger from Altschuler and Sigelman in March 2006 for $250 million, and its combination by Donnelly with another Donnelley acquisition, Aston BPO, by September 2006, Office Tiger expanded to 29 offices and 42 client locations across nine countries and employed 4,000 people in India, 4,000 in Europe, 1,000 in Sri Lanka, 750 in the United States, and 300 in the Philippines. Altschuler has claimed Office Tiger is not a traditional outsourcing company, but rather one whose overseas employees "enhance the services and jobs that Americans are doing here domestically." Later in the interview, he contends, "You want the professionals here doing different kinds of things than he or she is doing today. Office Tiger allows them to take some of the more traditional tasks and outsource that offshore." 

In 2001 he co-founded an electronic waste (e-waste), recycling company Cloud Blue Technologies, which is based in, Norcross Georgia, having moved there in 2011 from Alpharetta GA. Altschuler serves as the company’s executive chairman and works out of their Port Jefferson, NY offices.
 Altschuler was awarded membership in the exclusive GOP "Young Guns", a select group of young candidates chosen by Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy.
