Call center jobs

Started reading “The World is Flat” by Thomas Friedman today. Have done around 40 pages. Anyways, the purpose of the post is to mention that the book says, “These call center jobs are low-wage low-prestige jobs in America, but when shifted to India they become high-wage high-prestige jobs”

Don’t call me a snob, but I’m wondering if call center jobs are actually high-prestige jobs here. At least among my close relatives the reaction to someone being in a call center job is “poor guy/girl didn’t get any other job”.
