Maine AFL-CIO and Communications Workers of America Local 1400 are strongly supporting legislation aimed at preventing outsourcing and protecting good Maine jobs. LD 201, sponsored by Rep. Michelle Dunphy (D-Old Town), would make any employers who outsource call centers ineligible for state grants, loans or tax breaks for five years and they would require them to pay back any state tax benefits they previously received.
