    How do you feel about American companies either importing product and exporting work?

    I'm very upset with any American company that exports their production work outside of America, especially when we are in so much trouble in regard to our present economy. Every one of those jobs matter now more than ever, and none of those companies seem to be in any hurry to create more opportunities for those of us who are out of work and losing our possessions due to them maintaining their bottom line and answering to their stockholders.

    Truthfully, I could care less whether other businesses want to import products or export their work (outsourcing). Especially since most of those jobs are jobs that we American's really want little to do with anymore, which is why I find it so interesting when people complain of lost jobs or potential employment (like telemarketing, I mean, doesn't anyone really want to be a telemarketer?). Those jobs that most of us find lame or redundant, go to people in countries with most of the luxuries we have. Though the real point, is that they work much harder for those same jobs. They show up on time, they stay loyal to whatever company and they do it without asking for more. Granted, I think it's really lame when certain companies outsource and then pay the people horribly, regardless of the rules of capitalism, they could at least give them decent wages. I have similar negative feelings towards companies that take advantage of mass child labor.

    Now, all that being said. In my own business, I prefer to conduct everything on as local a scale as possible. If I can buy my supplies, tools, products or services down the street, I will, even if it costs more than it would to order those same things from someone in Indonesia through ebay. I prefer it this way, because I feel that local businesses and consumers can impact their cities and states better through keeping the focus on local commodities, services and products. It also results in healthier foods and cheaper services in the long run.

    Even still, there are times when it's really nice to be able to ship something in that was made elsewhere, whether that's a neighboring state or a whole other country. It could be that the quality is better, or that the commodity just isn't available where you are.

    Besides all that, the way I look at the whole import/export/outsourcing thing, is that any job that been outsourced, shouldn't be focused on anymore. With those jobs out of the view, it becomes time to think about what new innovative thing that can be created, or service that can be provided. It could be the old service but given much better quality, or it could be something entirely new.

    DON'T GET ME STARTED on this one!

    I'd have to write an entire book, and not a single word would be either polite, ladylike or compplimentary.

    In short, my opinion on the matter is not printable here on Hub Pages! 

    It is the ruination of our country, and that's the long and short of it, and as polite as it gets.
