Any time you call an 800 number – Bring jobs back to the USA

This was sent to me by a friend…it is a wonderful thing to know…we can help more Americans be employed:

Any time you call an 800 number …I know it is the LAW – I will do it for sure..
Any time you call an 800 number-(for a credit card, banking, charter communications, health and other
insurance, computer help desk, etc), and you find that you’re talking to a foreign customer service
representative, please consider doing the following:

After you connect and you realize that the customer service representative is not from the USA, (you can always ask if you are not sure about the accent), please, very politely (this is not about trashing other cultures) say, “I’d like to speak to a customer service representative in the United States of America ..”

The rep might suggest talking to his/her manager, but, again, politely say, “Thank you, but I’d like to speak to a
customer service representative in the USA ..”
YOU WILL BE IMMEDIATELY CONNECTED TO A REP IN THE USA .
That’s the rule and the LAW.
It takes less than one minute to have your call re-directed to the USA .

Tonight when I got redirected to a USA rep, I asked again to make sure – and yes, she was from Fort Lauderdale .
Imagine what would happen if every US citizen insisted on talking to only US phone reps from this day on.

Imagine how that would ultimately impact the number of US jobs that would need to be created ASAP.

Here is a link with a couple of other perspectives on this: http://message.snopes.com/showthread.php?t=44439

and another: http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/servicerep.asp

If I tell 10 people to consider this and you tell 10 people to consider doing this – see what I mean…it becomes an exercise in viral marketing 101.

Remember – the goal here is to restore jobs back here at home – not to be abrupt or rude to a foreign phone rep .

If you agree, please tell 10 people you know, and ask them to tell 10 people they know….etc…etc..

This is MeddlingMom…please forward this to everyone you know…let’s get Americans back to work!

      that’s great, Sue…it’s worth a try, isn’t it? I liked the idea that when ordering online, if we call the number and order speaking with a person, we will save jobs, rather than just ordering on our own…worth the effort for sure.
      thanks for reading and commenting!
