I’m not real familiar with the Mexican job market but it seems the only jobs available are for teachers or travel agents. There are 4 in San Pedro
Garza Garcia, Mexico and the ones I’ve checked out require speaking fluent English. I see this may benefit one of us Americans but don’t see any
opportunities for the Hispanic community. I can’t give live links but anyone can look for work abroad and come to the same conclusions in Mexico. We
need to fix that!
If we gather enough officials in all of our local areas we may be able to solve some issues.
This controversial subject has been eating away at me lately. What to do about illegal aliens and what to do about US companies outsourcing overseas.
I put these 2 together as a solution. My ancestors came over from Germany in the 1860’s and became citizens legally. Why is it more difficult now
days to become a US citizen? I am torn on how to address the issue. I do however think all those children born here or were raised here to attend our
school all their lives should have the same rights as we do no matter which nationally they are. They are innocent children going about their daily
life and being denied driver’s license’s when they turn 16, not able to go to college, etc. All of our ancestors immigrated here.
I’ve always been opposed to outsourcing and Corporate America certainly isn’t doing its part to help bring America out of its economic malaise,
mostly due to government regulations.
Here is my answer; Let’s make Mexico a wealthy Country! Outsource to Mexico only. It may sound crazy but would be a beneficial, lucrative
It would solve drug wars, build schools and hospitals in Mexico, create millions of jobs there and help the border problem. It only benefits the
United States and Mexico to do this. I assume I’d be jumping their fence in 2016. Mexico is our neighbor, as is Canada. I don’t know if I agree
with the North American Union but this can be handled a lot better than ignoring it all these years. I see both the US and Canada have health care
for most, did someone forget about Mexico? We are joined at the hip.
When I see China, India, and the Philippines building new skyscrapers and enjoying the wealth we provide them I’m thinking this money should be
invested in our neighbor. We could all enjoy that prosperity, going to lavish Mexican Vacations, seeing their economy blossom. Allow them passports
and the money comes back to the US and elsewhere. I know it isn’t that simple.
Just these few companies General Electric, Caterpillar, Microsoft, Wal-Mart, Chevron, Cisco, Intel, Stanley Works, Merck, United Technologies, and
Oracle cut their workforces by 2.9 million people over the last decade while hiring 2.4 million people overseas. Why overseas? Why not next door?
One way to help accomplish this would be let big corporations bring money they have stashed overseas back to the U.S. at a dramatically lower tax rate
creating less of a need to outsource. The place to start is lowering the corporate tax rate which is now the highest rate in the industrialized world.
The Philippines overtook India in call center seats in 2011. Its red hot there and their economy grew by 6% last quarter. Does anyone have any idea
about how to transfer the wealth to our neighbors in Mexico. We would need Mexican leadership that we can work with. I’d create a contract Trade
Agreement with the Mexican government that in exchange for giving them these jobs they are not allowed to outsource this work.
Companies could still prosper since the cost of living is a lot less in Mexico their dollar would go farther to outweigh the labor expense. Not
similar to China manipulating the dollar, rather we consider doing this the honest way. It would still be cost effective, no overhead, continue low
operating costs, save on seasonal problems, and hire internal staff for control and regulations and this is more cost effective for communication
barriers and interpreters that need training overseas. . Simply re-write the US/Mexican corporation tax code, those same dollars would fund their
hospitals and have adequate medical testing equipment.
Another huge asset to this is less phone stress to call overseas and try to understand what they are trying to say other than “thank you mam”
“so sorry mam” I apologize mam” they must apologize at least 8 times during each call wasting our time. Spanish and English are already easily
My forefathers fought and died for the Union but now I have many second thoughts about this, especially with the Twinkie workers at Hostess. Get
real!!!! The US is falling apart and the EU is close behind being held together with duct tape. We must do something. I wish ATS allowed petitions but
they do not. The days seem long gone from when I turned over an item to see the words “made in Mexico” Does anyone agree? I’ve sacrificed my
values I’ve placed on my strong support of Union work so that my Country can survive. I think we must all reevaluate our futures and that which is
being passed on to our children.
If we can’t get our US jobs back let’s give it all to Mexico and throw in unlimited US/Mexico work visas going both directions for US workers as
well. I say we give Mexico those 2.4 million, overseas jobs ASAP, since it’s apparent we won’t get them back. That is my solution on this
subject. I welcome any ideas.. Would you prefer those new skyscrapers, hospitals and colleges built overseas or in our back yard? We police the world
and send aid across the globe, yet we neglect our neighbors. It makes no sense.
On the other hand if China wants to play this way we can also devalue our dollar. A weaker dollar makes overseas travel more expensive for Americans.
So what! A weaker dollar makes imports more expensive and that’s really the point right?
Each job that is outsourced creates a new US competitive opportunity! We need to take advantage of these and there are many! I see many benefits to
implementing the plan with Mexico. It will also make the borders a safer place for all. Ignoring this subject has gotten us nowhere beneficial. We are
talking about millions of jobs and TRILLIONS in cash.
I believe we not only deserve the American Dream for generations to come but a dream for all to become self sufficient and prosper. Government has
failed us. They need to loosen up regulations and act quickly. I think we need some Senators on board here. I don’t have all the stats on tax codes
in Mexico and other obstructive decisions the US has placed on this plan but it can’t possibly be that difficult to accomplish.
I know many may think “just kick them all out and build a fence” Many of us know that doesn’t work and have some sort of humanity. It may be a
dream but I’d personally love it to see Mexico flourish, and not only in Cuernavaca, Guadalajara , Mexico City, Monterrey, , etc but in all corners
of the Country. Can you see the benefits from such a plan? I want our US newspapers to say “Job Openings in Mexico” to benefit American workers
traveling there, as well. It’s kind of one sided right now, yet it’s left as a hot potato that no one wants to address.. I’ve traveled to parts
of Mexico, both good and bad and the children I have seen in poorer areas should be addressed now.
I have no personal benefit from this and don’t live near the border. If I see it so do you. Wouldn’t we all like to look over that fence and see
prosperity and growth?
