I feel sorry for the guy, but he's seeing it from his perspective, not the companies that provide the jobs.

If companies keep their factories in America, their costs will be higher than the companies that outsource labour. Therefore, their products will be a higher price and people won`t buy them. A year or so down the line, the company will go bust and everyone loses their jobs anyway.

I agree that more could be done to prevent homelessness and increase jobs, but it just doesn`t work that way...

I'm not implying anything, I`m telling you directly... Yes American and British companies regularly outsource whole departments to India, Asia and other regions for large cost savings. It is not food for greed, it gives them a significant competitive advantage, or at least allows them to stay buoyant in a competitive market.

And yes I am aware that certain taxes and expenses are attributed to outsourcing overseas. However, these costs are nothing compared to the savings that are made.

You were able to survive without companies buying in overseas labour because it wasn`t an option. Globalisation has allowed companies to do this through the use of technology. Since then, nearly everyone has been doing it and making massive cost savings as a result.

I`m sorry, but you clearly have no idea what you are talking about...
