Clinton signs NAFTA

(Sep. 26, 2011) — Ever since the 90s jobs have been flowing overseas. At first, telecenter work was outsourced, and workers were callously asked to train their replacements in India. In some cases severance pay was used as leverage to compel American workers to train their replacements.

Why pay an American $15 per hour when you can pay someone from India $3 per hour? The telecenters were first because -let’s face it- telecenters are fairly inexpensive to shut down in one place, and set up elsewhere. It was an easy way for corporations to cut costs. When this began to happen, no one really complained except those who were losing their jobs, and anyone calling customer service and encountering a thick accent (“could you repeat that please, Sajwat”?).

Corporations were thoroughly enjoying NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) and other ludicrous trade deals as they saw their expenses drop and their profits rise.

Then the computer programming jobs began to be outsourced -again to India- but still lawmakers failed to see the fallacy of their globalist vision.................
