Re: “Defrauding in Tongues

Although it may or may not be a benefit to drop the 20 percent rule, it is important to note that a lot of the smaller interpreter companies have been forced out of business by larger companies that "outsource" their service from poor countries in Latin America. In many cases the interpreters work in facilities that are nothing more than interpreter "sweatshops." Even when they operate in the U.S.A. they try to pick places with low wages and poor employee protection like Puerto Rico. I'm not sure how the 20 percent rule will play out, but I think that any contract by any federal, state or local agency should require the provider to have 100 percent of its workforce within the 50 states. No exceptions.
