     The thing that gets me is its our corporations,its our lobbyists, but ire is mostly directed at the third world&its masses.Sometimes i wonder if the pain of outsourcing might have been a little bit less if the country was,lets say,in western europe&developing.
      Generally,if its people in a poor country working in nike sweatshops for a few cents/hour, we make the right noises about the working conditions,but not too concerned about it.When its about white collar jobs moving out,shit hits the fan.
        My contract was abruptly cut twice when the whole department was outsourced.Moved on to the next gig.If things really go downhill in the future, i'll probably just start a small business.I try to keep in mind that if my country had been third world, I would have liked to see my country petition the WTO. If I had been born in the third world & educated, I would have  tried to look for legal ways to better prospects abroad. If i had zero schooling, had to take care of my family and it wasnt possible where i was, i am SURE i would have sneaked a border,jumped a ship,hitched a ride on the back of a truck.wont you?
      It never fails to surprise me, the veiled prejudices i have seen innumerable times in supposedly liberal coworkers.And quality? cut the shit out.Been long enough in this industry to know otherwise.

      You have raised excellent points. Instead of pointing out flaws in the visa system the author attacks foreign workers and their education with his prejudiced views.
