Trump to meet with execs from Harley-Davidson, which outsourced IT

President Donald Trump is schedule to meet Thursday with executives from Harley-Davidson to talk about job creation. This is also a company that has shifted IT jobs to Infosys, the large offshore outsourcing firm based in India.

Harley-Davidson is an American icon and its motorcycles are part of the cultural fabric. But it is also a modern corporation that benefitted from tariffs in the 1980s to protect it from overseas motorcycle makers, and it has globalized its IT operations.

In 2012, the company entered into a long-term “partnership” with Infosys, which is a major user of H-1B visa workers.
