I have an answer for everything...you may not like the answer or it may not satisfy your curiosity..but it will still be an answer. ~ Kal'Stang
My mind and my heart are saying I'm in my twenties. My body is pointing at my mind and heart and laughing its ass off. ~ Kal'Stang
If every competitor in the marketplace is helping raise the living standards of these other nations by utilizing their far less expensive labor and very high numbers of technically trained candidates (we prefer liberal arts in the U.S,. and wonder why we import so many tech jobs, dur), you will not compete with them if you don't either do likewise, or find some earth shattering innovation AND are able to keep it secret, to compete.
Else, you lose, and you are then unemployed and all your employees are unemployed and the business is sucked up by a foreign entity.
The notion that foreign labor is desirable because they make fewer demands is absurd when compared to the real reasons and real risks.
You have a choice. Don't compete globally, or compete. Your choice. I personally don't like to lose.
