    <p>As a patriotic and proud citizen of the United States, I have a story to share that has not only impacted my family, hundreds of colleagues, but also current and future United States workers.</p> <p>As I watched the grim faced Disney Executive, it was obvious that bad news was going to be delivered. The dead silence was broken when the Disney Executive made a harsh announcement. All of you in this room will be losing your jobs in the next 90 days. Your last day of employment for this company will be January 30, 2015. Your jobs have been given over to a foreign workforce. In the meantime you will be training your replacements until your jobs are 100 percent transferred over to them and if you don’t cooperate you will not receive any severance pay. Also, if we don’t feel confident that we have captured everything that you do we can, at our discretion, keep you longer than the 90 days until we have captured everything that you do with this job. Don’t discuss this meeting with anybody else in the company. Everybody in the room was appalled at the message. I was completely silent thinking how this was going to affect my coworkers and how I was going to break the news to my wife and children back at home as I was the only person in my home with a steady job. How would I pay for all the expenses that go along with a home, a wife, and children?</p>

    NAVY DOLPHINS’ WORK WILL BE OUTSOURCED Robots to pick up animals’ tasks, like some detection of mines Like the factory worker and travel agent before them, some Navy dolphins trained to hunt down mines are scheduled to be replaced by computers in five years. However, the Navy’s marine mammals aren’t going away. Military-trained dolphins and sea lions will continue to be used for port security and retrieving objects from the sea floor — jobs they are still better at than machines. The Navy’s $28 million marine mammal program, headquartered in San Diego, uses 80 bottlenose dolphins and 40 California sea...
  • Outsourcing Hypocrisy

    During the month of July, Barack Obama relentlessly attacked Mitt Romney with bogus charges of outsourcing American jobs during his tenure at Bain Capital.  Hypocrisy has become standard-operating-procedure for the Obama White House and campaign team.  However, some new information suggests that if Obama really wanted to rail against the big outsourcer he should have been talking to the man in his mirror. The Obama campaign spent millions on television ads accusing Romney of being the "outsourcer-in-chief."  But, when scrutinized by political truth-testers across the nation, the accusations proved to be false.Glenn Kessler, The Fact Checker at the Washington Post,...

    The Obama campaign may be attacking Republican rival Mitt Romney for investing abroad, but it is not shy about raising campaign cash overseas. Last week, the campaign held a fundraiser for American expatriates in Shanghai, raking in large sums from those benefiting from the sort of personal and professional investment overseas that President Barack Obama has cast as unpatriotic in a recent attack ad against Romney.

    Curious: didn't see any stories on this outrage on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, MSNBC or read about it in The New York Times-Democrat or The Washington Post-Democrat: About a year ago, Xerox told some 600 employees, many of them engineers, that their jobs were being transferred to an India-based IT services firm. How has that worked out? Neither company is disclosing detail about what's been going on, but information is leaking out about some layoffs. The move by Xerox goes to the heart of the outsourcing debate between President Barack Obama and the presumptive Republican nominee, Mitt Romney. It involves...

    SNIP The Obama campaign apparently loves to ding former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney with the charge of “outsourcing.” On several occasions, we have faulted the campaign for its claims, apparently to little avail. Now, all of the claims have been combined in one 30-second ad, with the added incendiary charge that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee was a “corporate raider.” Let’s look anew at this material. SNIPRegarding the other claims, concerning Canadian electronics maker SMTC Manufacturing and customer service firm Modus Media, the Obama campaign tries to take advantage of a gray area in which Romney had stepped down from...

    WASHINGTON -- President Obama is barnstorming the heartland to boost US jobs in a taxpayer-financed luxury bus the government had custom built -- in Canada, The Post has learned. The $1.1 million vehicle, one of two that Quebec-based Prevost sold the government, has been tricked out by the Secret Service with state-of-the-art security features and creature comforts. It's a VIP H3-45 model, the company's top of the line, and is used by major traveling rock bands. "That's the more luxurious model," Christine Garant of Prevost told The Post.

    Boeing illegally put its second 787 Dreamliner assembly line in South Carolina in retaliation for strikes in Washington and should be required to build the line in Washington, according to a National Labor Relations Board complaint filed Wednesday. The board's acting general counsel filed the complaint in response to a charge that the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers union District 751, backed by the national union, filed on March 29, 2010. A board administrative law judge is scheduled to hear the case on June 14. The complaint says Boeing executives "made coercive statements to its employees that it...

Rick Perry and lunch with a group that included Carl's Jr. chief Andrew Puzder, who is considering moving his headquarters to Texas. No burgers were served. Then they took a tour of the Capitol, where they were recognized as honored guests on the legislative floor. One...

Unfortunately for the middle class, much of the rest of the world does not have the same minimum wage laws and worker protections that we do. Therefore, the massive global corporations that...

The scientific survey was conducted October 26-28 by long time pollster Frank Luntz. The poll asked various questions regarding their union leadership and the 2010 midterm elections. The poll found that 60 percent of union members oppose their union...

    Volkswagen plans to pick Mexico as the site for an engine plant to serve its assembly plant in that country and the automaker’s Chattanooga factory, according to a report. Automotive News reported Tuesday an announcement could come as soon as today. Last month, Frank Fischer, chief executive of VW's operations in Chattanooga, told the Times Free Press he didn't expect the engine plant to come to the city. “We said, ‘Please do it,’” Fischer said in August. “We were supporting it.” But VW officials were looking at manufacturing capacity and consumer demand in locating the plant, he said. Mexico had...

Siemens will supply wind turbines capable of producing 600 megawatts of electricity, enough for 240,000 households, in Ontario. It will also provide 98 turbines for an Oklahoma wind farm, enough for 227 megawatts.

So what happened in Ohio when Democrat Governor Ted Strickland got his mitts on some of Obama's stimulus cash? Why he gave it to a company to fund a call center that is operating out of El Salvador, Central America, of course. Jobs for Americans? Heck no, jobs for El Salvadorans! And why? Because it was a good deal, you see? Earlier this year Governor Strickland's Department of Development awarded a...
