Stemming from this thread I want to have a discussion about the various issues in this election year without any mention of the candidates.
Let me make this crystal clear please do not mention ANY presidential candidate or party by name in this thread. Obviously I cannot enforce that rule, but hopefully people have had enough of the political bickering along party lines to make this thread free of that nonsense.
So here's the generic subject of this post, and what I want people to discuss: "Is outsourcing a problem?"
For those of you who don't know, outsourcing is when companies/corporations take jobs to foreign countries in order to take advantage of cheaper labour. This does cause the loss of American jobs, but the flipside is that with cheaper labour costs, theoretically in the long run the cost of the product (the cost to the American consumer) will decrease.
So is this a problem that should be solved by the American government? By the American people? Is it not a problem? If so why not? etc.
I won't chime in to try not to bias the thread from the getgo. Please, express your opinions without mentioning presidential candidates or parties. Thanks.
