The Next Pink Slip Could Be Yours!

Will your job be the next to be outsourced? When multi-national corporations outsource American jobs to the third world are they importing a lower standard of living? Are the corporations that outsource American jobs loyal to our homeland or do they see only "profit potential?" Is our country just another piece on the chessboard of economic globalization? Can the United States afford to lose its entire manufacturing potential? Is it in Americas interest to depend entirely on other countries for our manufactured goods? Does the strength of our military lie entirely with the weapons and the warriors or with the economy that supports them? Will the land of opportunity become the land of the haves and the have-nots? Does Rome burn while we enjoy the deceitful melodies that are played by our leaders?

The US will not survive as a manufacturing economy, there are too many foreign workers who work better for less. If you want job security, you had better figure out what you can do better than third world workers. You cannot depend on labor unions to think for you. Wake up and work smarter.

I never said labor unions are the answer to anything. I just want us to think about the millions of people who are being left behind. Ask the people in the Tech fields who used to have high paying jobs? It seems alright when it is happening to other people.

THC has a point.

Healthcare and construction are about the only things that can’t be outsourced.

I just blogged on this, and then randomly dropped in here.

Get rid of WTO, put the free trade agreements in a fire where they belong. Fair trade is the way to go.

In an economy and country built on a better way of life, we are risking it all allowing jobs to go where they do little good, except to a few greedy shareholders...

If you want to make computers in the philipeans, make sure you can sell them there as well, or prepare to recieve your fair share in this world.... 1 bowl of rice a day.

i think its so sad that so many talented american programmers etc are losing their livelyhoods as the rich get richer. these companies should be forced to pay a tax for outsourcing work overseas. PERIOD. this would counterbalance the $ and we can give americans american jobs.

shit ya.

Is protecting our homeland as important as protecting the jobs of our citizens? You are considered unpatriotic if you don't support the miltary. Are you considered unpatriotic if you ship American jobs to Indian?

I think you need to change your worldview a little. You put your finger on it when you said 'multi-national corporations.' Businesses of any size these days aren't American, or British, or of any nation. They are inter-national. They have national offices but they don't depend on any one country. If labour is cheaper in another country - that's where they'll go. The nation state is on its way out. Corporations are ruling the world now.

Yes, you are correct - multi-nationals are ruling the planet. And they are ruling with a recklessness that is so extreme that America now resembles the class-stratified societies of early-twentieth-century Europe.
