  •  I've actually had conservatives call me a racist (8+ / 0-)

    because I oppose outsourcing. The basic rant is, "Don't you want to bring wealth and prosperity to <random country>? You must be a racist!" It's one of their clever twists on reality. What I resent is outsourcing jobs to countries with near slave labor policies and the ability to dump toxic waste unchecked. And healthcare? Pensions? Anything resembling workers rights? Forget about those. If they actually had to pay living wages, hire enough workers to not have 80 hour work weeks, offered benefits, and paid for proper disposal of their wastes it still might be cheaper to have a plant in Shandong, China. But I doubt it would be cheap enough to ship next to every job they can think of overseas.
