Should companies that outsource jobs receive tax breaks equal to the employers that keep jobs within a country's borders? If yes, why do you feel that philosophy is acceptable?

Thank you for your answer that hits the nail on the head. Greed and the love of money over country is destroying us. Well, perhaps not those on the top of the food chain, but certainly the majority of the population.
100% right i agree with you.. Every company should give more importance to customers or clients. And so if they want cheap prices and better quality then the best choice is to outsource and that's by no means wrong..
Thank you Panzer Kumar. I see nothing wrong with outsourcing in order to produce products at the price customers demand. At the same time, I think companies that outsource should not receive the same tax benefits as company that don't.
You make some good points. Your views and others can be boiled down to the fact that we live and operate in a global economy, and accordingly everything cannot be done in our backyard, city, state or nation.
Yes. I also like the fact that you bring up the point that employees want high wages and so if a company needs to provide a product or service at a particular price point, then the company doesn't have many choices beyond outsourcing.
High wages and expensive benefits are part of the issue. I wanted a high wage at my last job and I had good benefits, but we were not competing with a foreign entity. We have to find a way to balance the scales. Reducing income taxes would be one way
I have a friend who earned a good living as a virtual assistant in the U.S. But companies started going overseas for her type of service and she was no longer able to compete with the prices. Plus, I agree with you about lower income taxes, Larry.
I agree with most of our views, the point is not competing but cooperating. On the whole both companies and service firms abroad both get benefited and it indirectly benefits US by bringing in more money in terms of taxes.
