Wages and benefits

Face it, your live employees, if they're anything like the current crop of slackers, are probably pretty close to zombies anyway.

But you have to pay them wages, even when you know they're goofing off or playing solitaire on the computer half the time. And on top of that, you may even have to pay for some of their health care. How annoying!

Actual zombies, on the other hand, don't need wages; just put in a few brains machines in the break room. Plus, they don't need health care because, hey, already dead!

Advantage: zombies!

Deadsourcing vs. Outsourcing

Sure, you can always outsource to some country with a lower cost of living. But the cost of outsourced labor is subject to increasing development in those countries, with a rising standard of living and increased competition from other companies trying to do labor on the cheap.

Also, foreign workers who speak your language, even at the just barely adequate level you need for your Customer Discouragement phone support lines, are going to cost you more.

Add in the hassles with telecommunications, differing time zones and fluctuating currency rates, and you can see where outsourcing can be an incredible headache with not a lot of payoff in the long run.

Zombies, on the other hand, can be had easily, cheaply and - best of all - locally!

They already speak your language, if they speak at all (but that right there will save you lots of money on customer support; a zombie will never, say, refer a customer to a supervisor.)

So, no bribes, no worrying about training or visas or travel - just dirt-cheap workers that will never ask you to get them green cards or H1-Bs!

Zombies vs. Slaves

So, you want employees, but you don't want to pay 'em. Which way to go, slavery or deadsourcing?

Well, first off, slavery is illegal. Exploiting the dead, not so much.

You are responsible for feeding your slaves. Your zombies also have to eat, and it's true, they have a more specialized diet. But buying brains in bulk can be surprisingly economical, compared to providing even the most basic diet for your alive slaves that would keep them productive.

Slaves will probably eventually complain, rebel, get sick or die[1].

Zombies don't complain, won't rebel as long as the break room brains machines are kept stocked, and hey - already dead.

If you don't already have a supplier, it's tough to obtain slaves. But with ZombieTemps, it's a breeze to obtain zombies! Not only can we supply all the deadsourced talent you can use, we can also supply your employee cafeteria with slightly used brains[2]

All in all, we'd have to say: advantage zombies!

--
[1] At which point, you'd have the opportunity to convert your slave to a zombie - it's a win-win!
[2] As long as you obey Rule #1: "Don't ask, really, we mean it."
