A 99er's View on Outsourcing and the Loss of the American Dream

Post by Guest on Wed Apr 20, 2011 3:40 pm

There is a certain group of millions out here that have not been able to produce in this economy and who have been ignored by both the Republican and Democratic parties. The Democrats offered a bill a few times, but likely knew the bill wouldn’t move out of committee. There is no risk in offering any bill if you know it is unlikely to pass. The Republicans do not offer anything better in this plight for the unemployed (especially the exhaustees). Instead of offering help, they have offered insults and no solutions at all. How long can America go on in this way? How long will the media continue to lie about the recovery? We do not have a true recovery when there are millions who want a job but cannot find one. This economy will never truly recover until every American that wants to work has a job with a living wage. If a corporation wants to pay a cheaper wage then it should start lowering product prices too. It is time tax paying Americans stop bearing the brunt of the economic suffering while corporations which rely on Americans to buy their products for their profit margin are allowed to grow uninhibited. The unemployed bear the hardest burden of all. Union members, teachers, police, and fire fighters may have had a burden to carry but the unemployed have lost everything. Why are those that have not lost everything top priority? Have Americans developed a false sense of entitlement? The unemployed have known no entitlement they have only known loss for the last 3 years. They have known fear on an intimate level and sacrifice is their middle name.

She's a great blogger and I agree. Way too many people don't realize the dangers of outsourcing until it happens to them. I often hear family telling me they don't care if they buy a product from another country as long as its cheap. I have to tell them that when you buy a product from China not only is it inferior, but that means one less American has a job.

I once lived in a town (suburb near Chicago)with a large Zenith plant. Most of the people I knew worked at this plant. They were basically unskilled people but able to support their families. The plant moved to Mexico and they went on assistance. Others got into selling drugs.

I had a friend who worked at a railroad foundry not far from this plant. He went from a single man who owned a condo downtown Chicago and affording a great life to having to move back to his parents at 55 and working at the deli at Wal-Mart.

These were all the result of outsourcing. Not to mention those who can't pay their credit cards, and then getting a credit call from India. If an American had that job there would be less people defaulting on credit cards.

Great article on how and why we are here. Sad

This has to stop! Corporations are sitting on billions in profits, not hiring American workers and continue to outsource.

Look at companies like ACS/XEROX...their business for God sakes is outsourcing for co's who hire them to manage the process!
