Who pays their check? That's right, a citizen of our country, because they're cheaper.
Actually, a citizen of "our" country pays a portion of their check. As does a citizen of a number of other countries. This is called "free trade" and
Now, the portion they are paying isn't mandatory, it's voluntary. If you want to support only American Workers then you need to purchase only items
that are engineered, manufactured, marketed for, and sold in your country. If you own a Dell, HP, Asus, or any other major computer or cell phone you
are part of the problem you're whining about. To emphasize: YOUR purchases are dictating where jobs go and who is getting those jobs.
Just FYI, the call center we outsourced to in India didn't save us any money. Our major reason for going there was because the call center we were
utilizing in the US was performing poorly, and when their contract was close to expiration we looked into other options. India provided a highly
educated group that had a history of great performance. Numbers were much better on an individual scale too. For example, less employee turnover,
higher individual levels of education, better overall performance and even with complaints about "talking to some desk-jockey in India" our overall
customer satisfaction grew. I won't name the company I worked for but it was a MAJOR one. One who's commercials probably annoy the crap out of you,
like they do me.
