I don't know about everyone else, but I really want more of THIS! 4 more years of double-digit (true) unemployment, multi-trillion dollar deficits and death panels killing Grandma! Hurray for the status quo!

That's anecdotal.

Nope it IS the rule

Important points:
-Affiliates in high-income countries accounted for 79% of total affiliate output
-Parent companies account for 69.6% of worldwide employment of U.S .multinationals—21.7 million parent workers versus 9.5 million at affiliates. This translates into a ratio of almost 2.3 U.S. employees for every one affiliate employee.

To suggest that businesses prefer "quality" labour over cheap labour is laughable on the whole, though there are exceptions, but those are just that, exceptions, not the rule.

@Crakr: Like I said to @Cajun, just because some companies don`t take advantage of cheap labour doesn`t mean it`s the norm.
