Forum Post: It's outsourcing stupid ??!!!

I heard talk on the radio tonight - transitional job training paid for by the government for when your job gets outsourced every few years - what the freaking hell?!!! How about we just put a stop to the outsourcing ? How about we put an end to monopolies who downsize every 3 years? Americans should not have to compete with slave labor. It's not about transitional education - Americans are the most productive workers in the world. It's about not selling them out to reap the spoils. If you want to sell in the world's largest consumer economy then how about you have to employ in it? Seems fair to me...But then again I'm just a dumb American consumer. Plus we can't all be unemployed because who will buy your stupid products? The economy has to function in a circular motion. Eventually welfare will run out and the taxes won't be there to cover all the unemployed. Wall Street will sink. Will the captains of industry go down with the ship (nope they will all head to New Zealand after they destroy American and turn her into a third world nation.) Are we going to let them get away with this?

It's all looting and control fraud. The CorpoRATS are driving a race to the bottom, seeking to exploit workers to the max. Wall Street has destroyed the world economy in its speculative/derivatives/gambling frenzy.

If landlords are allowed to milk buildings - doing no repairs, stealing pipes and fixtures, sooner or later the buildings fall down. It's simple.

Unfortunately our political leaders work for the control fraud criminals.

We sent 60k troops to their death in the name of stopping communism. Then a few decades later we are best buds with them. What a fuckin scam.

That's been government response since the early 90s... transitional training usually results in some eventual lesser employment; most opt instead to follow the work, increasing concentration and competition in that field. Many will experience three or four career changes in their lifetime, deprived of all pension possibilities; in later life they will land in retail in search of a meal. This would be a very prosperous country if only we were able to contain computerized value maximization, optimization, through efficiency, and retain that employment. In fact, in Europe this has become a field in itself; it's essentially recent college grads applying statistical analysis, observational tools, empowered to ultimately demand the jobs of those either less educated or less recently educated, and yet both are employed in the same industry. It's people eating people for the sake of the machine that demands a value maximization; yet in considering future career possibilities, it now appears to many as the only secure game in town.

My thoughts on such things are guided by the consideration that there can be no equality without equal opportunity; one cannot have equal opportunity is there is no opportunity.
