its rediculos, so many companies are firing their workers in America and shipping jobs to Japan, to save a couple dollars. It gets worse and worse every year, if you try to make a call to your credit card company, you get some guy from India who can't speak english. whats wrong with Americans? oh wait thats right, they ask for a little more money so they can pay the morgatge on their home, and at least a plan to help them if they get hurt at work. I hear that microsoft just fired 1000 workers so they can replace them with illegal aliens, don't those buttf**kers realise that those illegal aliens probably don't know how to use a computer, they probabably can't even afford one. What does the goverenment do? Nothing! Why? because they're so busy in Iraq, they can't afford to fix up the problems in america, hell there are canals and paths along the Deleware river that got destroyed in a flooding 2 years ago, they still aint fixed. So those companies will get more money at the expense of the middle class, there won't be a middle class by 2020 if this keeps up. you know this is just what happened when the Roman republic fell, the rich got richer and the poor got poorer.

Shipping jobs to Japan to save money? Hardly, seeing as Japanese average wages are higher than American ones...

And you make it sound like this is an internal American problem. But the real reason for jobs in the first world being outsourced is poverty in the rest of the world. As long as there are people that are very poor, there will be people who will work for very little money.

These jobs moving to poorer countries is only a tiny part of the problem of financial inequality in the world.

It's not a simple matter of "fixing a problem in America", it's fixing probably the single largest global problem of modern times.

Actually European companies and some Asian(especially Japanese, and I heard Malaysian) also out source jobs here in the US, to Americans.

To the OP, Everyone who can afford it does it, and for different reasons.

But I agree that Americans need jobs and stuff to pay bills. IMHO, I think the government needs to stop asking us to pay Taxes on something we already own(HOUSES/HOMES) Alot of states in America now are so rediculously expensive to live in, it creates problems. Alot of places in Florida you will see many houses on sale, for over 2-5 years and still no one can buy! They are too expensive, they guy that owns it doesnt want to lose money, and us citizens dont want to pay 3 different bills on the house a year. You can hardly live here unless you aready own a house, or rent.

My friend just left the AirForce(Tech Sgt) And he used to own a home, but he is moving out(only two people live in it, him and wife) He owned it for a while, but bills keep on going up, he has to leave it.

Even medical professionals like Nurses find it real hard to find good housing.

It isnt job outsourcing or availability that hurts americans, just retarded politicians and companies that make life more expensive than needed.

And is it surprising? Companies are always profit oriented. If they can save money buy moving to a poor country, they will do it. Who do you think could find a solution to this problem? It's a global thing. Global competition makes companies do this, and they will continue to do so until it's not profitable to move jobs away because all countries have about the same wages.

As for Japan, I was wondering why you mentioned shipping jobs to Japan in your first post?

Outsourcing shouldn't be that surprising thing in the USA, the land of opportunity, individualism & hard work but also selfishness, greed and indifference.

The developed western nations can't compete with countries like China and India in terms of workforce & material costs or employee's rights nor they should. In order to minimize the problem the USA needs to put more emphasis on research & development and service sectors through tax cuts, subsidies, legislation and increased funding for the education system as a whole. The economic power houses of Asia aren't yet so technologicly developed and people like plumbers, vendors, nurses and construction workers can't do their job from China.

We live in a more or less regulated market economy so it's better to get used on the concept of outsourcing and try to get best out from it.

The U.S. still has plenty of jobs if you know where to look, especially in thetechnology and medical fields. However you are right to say that many labor oriented jobs are being sent overseas. So the real trick is you are going to have to go back to school and get yourself a degree in something.
