Sherrod Brown outlines new bill on call-center jobs

Youngstown Vindicator

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown spent time here outlining new legislation that would help keep call-center jobs in the United States.

“This is all about American jobs, and bringing work back into this country,” said Brown, D-Avon.

The Democratic senator, who is seeking re-election in November, spoke Tuesday about the U.S. Call Center Worker and Consumer Protection Act at United Steelworkers 2115 union hall here.

The proposed legislation, which is still pending approval, would require the Department of Labor to maintain a list of businesses that relocate call centers overseas.

The bipartisan bill would make such companies and employers ineligible for federal grants, and require call-center employees to disclose their location to callers.
