Depends on what you want to do, and where. The neat thing about our system is that you can have any job you want. Qualifying for it, of course, is up to you. [;)]

Yeah!
It made American Unions to actually compete for the job, not just demand it, not like the "American way".
Wait a minute, free competition USED TO be American way.
it's simple..
which way would be more productive, to pay workers by the hour, or by how many widgets they could create?

of course the folks making the most widgets (mind you good widgets...) would be the most productive, and make the most money. a win-win situation.

this is the whole problem here. people seem to think society 'owes' them. f- that ...

One solution to the outsourcing is to cut all the transoceanic data cables and knock out all of the communication satelites. Problem solved.
rubbish .. isolationism only caused wars. big wars.

are you advocating disconnecting the internet as well?

I belive some people are working on it. So far they succeeded to knock down 2 towers.
Smart and willing to work people will always find work in this country. Take a look at all those thousands of illegals coming from Mexico. They don't even speak the language, but still finding a job is not a big problem for them.
I know, some would rather collect welfare, than do what those Mexicans do?

Because it is full of competition?

Because it ends up being unfair once someone that has more tokens decides to own the game[}:)]

RE: Outsourcing American Jobs

What does history show? World powers do not stay world powers forever. The Roman Empire. The sun never set on an English colony. French colonialism. Where did these superpowers go. The United States was a third world country. We industrialized. Our isolation allowed us to expand and supply the war machine of World War II. We then used our might to get Germany and Japan back on their feet. We started buying German and Japanese products. Corporation needed weatlhy Americans to buy consumer products. Salaries increased. Credit became available. People wanted cheaper goods. Outsourcing was invented. Now we have Wal*Mart and the ever present "Made in x" label. We used to see Made in Japan on everything. Now where are TV's and Toasters made. China and Korea. The superpowers of tomorrow. The United States will continue to fall into the mire that is France and the UK. Staggering unemployment and a service economy. In the meantime, we are at the cusp of another dark ages. Religious extremists will triumph and destroy the western devils. A strategic nuclear attack on the US will most likely occur in the next 5 to 10 years. THis will cripple our economy and drive us into 3rd world status. Look at New Orleans if you want to know what the US will look like. We will then be like the great Romans. All of their advances destroyed in a flash.

We should be so lucky. Rome wasn't destroyed in a day you know. It took hundreds of years.
We should be so lucky.
