Despite a US anti-outsourcing bill, the second largest American bank in deposits, home mortgage servicing and debit cards -- Wells Fargo and Co. -- has started to relegate some of its non-core, business support activities to the Philippines, a press release from the Trade Union Congress of the Philippines said.
