debate rising over job migration |
The migration of jobs, ranging from call-center operators to computer programmers, to countries with lower labor costs like China and India. The movement, known as offshore outsourcing, is growing, Mankiw acknowledged. But he said it was "just a new way of doing international trade" and "a good thing" that would make the U.S. economy more efficient and would free U.S. workers to eventually get better jobs. - (as slave laborers)

Meet the pissed-off programmer. If you've picked up a newspaper in the last six months, watched CNN, or even glanced at Slashdot, you've already heard his anguished cry. He's the guy - and, yeah, he's usually a guy - launching Web sites like yourjobisgoingtoindia.com and nojobsforindia.com. He's the guy telling tales - many of them true, a few of them urban legends - about American programmers being forced to train their Indian replacements. - (Svejk)

Tech Workers Help Companies Export Their Jobs |
U.S. companies are asking technology workers to help export a new product: their jobs. As programming and other computer services move to low-cost locations in India and China, some workers are in the awkward position of training their replacements. Software developer Mike Emmons recalls his shock two years ago when Siemens AG, the German telecom equipment giant, decided to replace him and his colleagues with lower-paid programmers from India.

trade surplus "only $53 billion"|
The trade imbalance is smaller than official US estimates that 2003 will show a record shortfall of $120 billion.
Everything imported from China is not made by an unemployed American worker.
It would be in the interest of the majority of Americans to not import anything - unless under high tariffs.

Legislative Alert: Activate Congress to Reject the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA)
Background: The Central American Free Trade Agreement, which was negotiated last month, will soon go before Congress for its approval. The administration is using CAFTA as a significant steppingstone to facilitate the even broader and much more dangerous Free Trade Area of the Americas, which envisions the ultimate merger of all nations of the Western Hemisphere under a European Union-style supranational government.
Fortunately, CAFTA may be the most politically vulnerable of the series of FTA's designed to set the stage for the FTAA, the granddaddy of them all. Building opposition to CAFTA is an opportunity to build a foundation of opposition to the FTAA.
Request: Contact your representative and senators now in opposition to CAFTA. Then persuade others to check out our Stop the FTAA web site and do the same.

VF Jeanswear's move to Mexico|
I lost my job 12-19-2002. It makes me sick how they made us put those stickers on each pair of jeans that said "PROUD TO BE MADE IN THE USA" That was the mid-80's and at lot changed with that company since then.
We all have President Clinton to thank for his concern in Foreign Trade. As far as I am concerned he was NO president!
