The irony that a corporation named American Express would promote the outsourcing of American jobs is difficult to ignore, in fact it is downright
I understand the reasons behind outsourcing as it is to meet business needs, eliminate overhead and cut costs but I don't necessarily agree with it as
I have seen it ruin families, even turn cities into a ghost town just so these multi-billion dollar corporations can save a buck.
You might be wondering why a Canadian gives a damn about American jobs being outsourced? Let me explain.
As a Canadian who once worked for an American company that decided to shut us down and ship our jobs overseas I can definitely relate to the struggles
and anger when it comes to this issue. I also care about the state of the American economy as it directly affects me and those who are important to
me, plus Americans are good people and are continuously getting the shaft more and more these days, so yes this is an important issue to me
I came across this today and just could not believe what I was reading.
So American Express has the audacity to promote outsourcing of American jobs during a time of economic turmoil and actually try and portray it as a
good thing...I mean do they really think people are that stupid ?!? (rhetorical question)
I hate it when people piss on me and tell me it's raining.
I need to clear one thing up before I proceed, I don't dislike the people who are getting these jobs as the whole world is a gigantic business and
they are only accepting well needed jobs, if I were in their shoes I would definitely take the job. It is not them who should be blamed.
Many people consider criticizing outsourcing as racist/bigoted...that is not the case in most situations people are just sick and tired of being
screwed over by huge corporations that they have slaved for their whole life. I was with the company for 5 years when we got outsourced and it really
sucked. Thankfully I was lucky enough to go back to college in order to strengthen my skills for today's job market...not everyone is so lucky and I
feel for those who are left with nothing after years of commitment and devotion.
Americans should be outraged, and I am confident that many of you already are and I'm willing to bet that many members of ATS have been affected by
outsourcing in one way or another. It seems the only job security now days is to join the military and fight the banker's wars which make the same
corporations that are taking our jobs overseas even wealthier...ironic huh?
It's time for the people to take their countries back from the corporations that have completely taken over. These corporations have most politicians
in their back pocket so it's easy for them to get away with what they're doing. I know it is not exactly logical to tell a company how and where they
can do business but I believe there should be some rules and boundaries that better protect North American workers.
American Express, I will avoid anything you are associated with to the best of my ability for now on, not that you care.
