Forum Post: The outsourcing continues

UNBE---fvCKING--- LIEVABLE!! I tell you that I've come to the conclusion that the American middle class has almost no representation by the current politicians in office. There were just two "Call Center" Bills voted on in NY and NJ. What these bills would have done is take away tax breaks for corporations (ex Verizon) that are sending American jobs overseas. So who could possibly find fault with these bills that are just trying to keep American jobs from being sent overseas by greedy corporations ? Needless to say that neither of these bills passed. DO we need any more proof that the politicians are owned lock, stock and barrel by the corporations? And of course this type of news is buried by the complicit media who would rather have us reading about KIm K's divorce.

Obama was just in Tampa on Friday talking about outsourcing, and how Mitt is pro at it.

While he is, Obama has done nothing but screw us also.

Im so tired of listening to his BS, along with Mitt's nonsense like he has the balls to do anything.

Disgusting.

If Americans were more informed, and had a greater sense of urgency over issues like this, we would simply stop giving our money to companies that outsource. Instead of the AT&T's of the world (who outsource customer service functions), we'd use a small local carrier, instead of shopping at Walmart, we'd frequent local stores that treat their employees well (e.g. plenty of cooperatives, employee owned, and unionized retailers out there), if we don't like corporate media (which we shouldn't) we can go buy a $40 HDTV antenna, a DVR (with wireless), and cable sucks anyway, if we have to use a big telecommunications company for internet, we could get together with our neighbors, hook up a router, and split the cost of the service, if we like worker cooperatives, there are opportunities to invest in these enterprises (e.g. crowd funding, micro-loans, etc.), if we don't like big banks, we can use credit unions, but I guess building this sort of awareness and support takes time.

According to the NY Times, even the glorious federal government is outsourcing.
