On Monday, Indian IT-based firm Infosys Ltd has announced that it plans to hire more than 10,000 American employees by next 2 years and also to open four technology centers in the United States, starting its office in Indiana by August.
The step has come at a time when Infosys and some of its Indian counterparts, such as Tata Consultancy Services and Wipro have become a soft political targets in the United States, ostensibly moving the jobs of the American workers, inviting foreign workers on temporary visas in order to do their clients jobs in a country.
In an interview with Reuters from Indiana, Infosys CEO Vishal Sikka said “his company plans to hire American workers in areas like artificial intelligence.”
He said that the company has already hired 2,000 American workers in the framework of previous efforts, begun in 2014.
“When you think about it from the standpoint of the United States, it is clear that the creation of more US jobs and opportunities – that’s good,” Sikka added.
