Telemarketers falling silent
OMAHA, Neb. -- Recognizing that many Americans won't be in the mood to get sales calls, many of the nation's telemarketers plan to take the day off Wednesday on the anniversary of the terrorist attacks.
Sept. 11 is a day for people to be with their families, said Perry Young, director of a telemarketing center in Omaha run by Call Solutions Inc. of Waukesha, Wis.
The nation's largest privately held telemarketing company, DialAmerica Marketing Inc. of Mahwah, N.J., is giving the day off to its 8,500 outbound telemarketers around the country.
