Shell IT staff disgusted at mega profits


What can you do?

Well, complaining won't do anything so if you see a company that behaves in a way you don't like then don't use that companies products. (This can be a problem where monopolies rule like UK Water Suppliers). Don't like Shell's profits?.. then don't buy Shell petrol and vote with your money.


About the working in India thing..

I seem to remember that due to one anchor from one boat, much of the Middle East and South Asian areas lost internet connectivity for a while and had to resort to slower backups. Not exactly the super reliable place to base your internet connected industries then. But cheap, they are cheap. (even though the Virgin TV call centre I phoned didn't understand my explanation of the problem. "the set-top box keeps re-booting constantly" seemed obvious to me.
