a) worrying about Microsoft-type firms inability to hire dirt cheap labor - genius.
b) duh, we can have the handful of manager jobs if we work with an outsourcer of dirt cheap labor just over the border. gee, that will help create jobs in the U.S.
This site is loaded with the idiocy of desperation, flailing around trying to satisfy the requests of globalists.
So many U.S. politicians are so stupid that it would not surprise me to hear them call for a reintroduction of slavery as a way to boost employment.
Yea, it will keep the Fortune 500 happy !
Perhaps they'll call for throwing out the Constitution and imposing the Chinese legal and governmental system on the United States - then we could cost justify bringing jobs back home.
I have yet to hear one highly-educated idiot actually mention the only real reason for keeping jobs in the U.S. - simple nationalism. It works for every nation, not just us. Every nation should avoid large trade imbalances. This means the management of every business should (duh) be concerned about the nation they are based in ! Is that so difficult to understand ? Maybe the economy needs to go farther in the dumper for them to get it.
There are plenty of people on both sides of the border with the knowledge but they don’t come cheap and can’t be made to disappear easily if they become a problem.
They are not completely wrong.
Like it or not, nearshoring with Mexico and Canada is getting steam. Far-shoring is losing luster as distance, language and time zones all start to weight on it heavily.
This could be a good plan for Catholic companies, if Canada allows them to have religious freedom. And right now, Canada has a less socialist tax structure than the US.
What do you think happened in the early 90's! something very similar...
* Workers came to Canada because it was easier to get a Visa their.
* They lived their because the dollar was stronger and they got more apt for the money offset by the montly speed pass.
* But they drove into Metro Detroit everyday with the speed pass.
* They worked for the Big three as Contractors doing FEA and all high end engineering fields that we didn't produce with everyone getting degrees in crap like gender studies...
I saw this with my own eyes
