    I got the news that as of the 17th of this month, verizon is dumping all of their american based contractors and offshoring those jobs to india. Won't be long before other companies start doing more of the same as well as dumping their financial responsibilities to employees like pension funds.

    Where is/are america/americans headed?

    anyone see the major class split coming again, like it was in the early 1900's?

    Globalization will be a huge issue in the 2008 Presidential race. It was the main reason that the French voted against the EU Constitutional Treaty. Corporations will show no sympathy. They are looking for every possible way to reduce costs and declare increased bottom lines. What will prevent high paying American jobs fleeing overseas to cheap unregulated labor markets? Nothing. Except perhaps much higher American worker productivity, already the highest in the world.
