Glenn Youngkin Made a Career of Sending Jobs Overseas

As an executive at the private-equity firm the Carlyle Group, Glenn Youngkin oversaw investments that moved thousands of American jobs offshore, including CWA-represented call center jobs. 

With Youngkin at the helm, the Carlyle Group bought a controlling stake in a call-center outsourcing company based in China called VXI Global Solutions. The company staffed approximately 3,000 AT&T call center jobs in the Philippines that displaced CWA-represented jobs in the US. Youngkin and his wealthy clients turned a profit, while workers and communities suffered. 

Despite the harm to thousands of workers, who have lost good jobs, Youngkin is proud of his track-record of sending American jobs overseas, saying at a campaign event,"I will never walk away from anything I did in my business career."

We need a Governor in Virginia who fights for good jobs in our communities, not just their own business interests. That’s why CWA is proud to endorse Terry McAuliffe for Virginia Governor.
