What you Won't Hear in the MSM

2 facts:

2.5 million Americans lost jobs in 2008


The federal government brought in 1.5 million new foreign workers to take jobs in 2008




Add to that the number of ILLEGALS in this country.

This so called stimulus packages has been identified by many as 93% spending and 7% stimulus.

Our obsession with 'outsourcing' and 'foreign workers' has gone out of control. You would be surprised to see how many well-paid jobs in IT an Manufacturing have been sent offshore. You would be surprised to see how immigrants from India and China have been 'imported' to high-paying IT/Techonlogy jobs. I don't know when will Americans come out of their sleep. It's absolutely shameful to see politicians from both parties supporting big coporations in this.

V,

Wouldn't it be great if we could go in and clean house on both sides of the aisle? I think you'd be in agreement with me on that one. *grin*

The questions to ask revolve around the reasons for sending the jobs overseas, the reasons for importing the workers. What drives companies to do this in the first place? The knee-jerk response is profits, but profits alone is not answer enough. Profits is the reason for existing as a company. But why could it be that it is more profitable to act in the manner they do?

I'm thinking it's a combination of things, such as gov't regs, taxation, perhaps fewer qualified Americans or even qualified Americans expecting more than they should for entry level positions. There are likely more reasons, but I'd look to these first.

It really is a complex issue - but at the root of it all is government.

My husband and I own a small business. Government regulations and taxes make it very difficult to see a profit. The amount of money we have to bring in just to keep the doors open is disproportionate to what we actually end up bringing home. And we live in a state that is just as corrupt and bogged down in government regulations and taxes as the federal government.
Government controlled schools are producing unqualified, unmotivated individuals who want a free ride. It's hard to find good employees. Fraud causes Workers Comp to jump sky high. Insurance requirements are astronomical. Taxes are excessive. OSHA requirements are unreasonable. The list goes on and on...

The American Dream more often becomes the American nightmare.

Not only have O-BUM-a voters been had, we're "had" right along with 'em.
