    What is too low of a wage for a worker in another country working for a outsourced...

    this question is aimed at those who support outsourcing.

    What is too low of a wage for a worker in another country working for a outsourced company?
    This American dollars not Liberian or Canadian dollars.


    $7.25 per hour(US federal minimum wage)
    $6.25 - $7.24 per hour
    $5.25 - $6.24 per hour
    $4.25 - $5.24 per hour
    $3.25 - $4.24 per hour
    $2.25 - $3.24 per hour
    $1.00 - $2.24 per hour
    $0.50 - $0.99 per hour
    $0.00(forced labor) - $0.49 per hour
    I don't care how low of a wage they work or if they were forced to work.



    The reason I did not put "what ever the going wage is that country" is because that answer is nothing more than a cop out and not an actual answer. If you do not care if people make 50 cents or only pennies an hour or simply do not care if they work in forced labor camps or prisons then have the balls to say that is what you support.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: What is too low of a wage for a worker in another country working for a outsource

    The wage just above the area where there are more jobs than people willing to work them.

    I'm against price/cost ceilings and floors, so it's easy to tell why I may have some contempt for minimum wage.

    $0.00(forced/slave labor) - $0.49 per hour
    I don't care how low of a wage they work or if they were forced to work.
    How about an intellectually honest poll option:
    [x] I don't care how low their wage is, but they shouldn't be forced to work.

    No it isn't. If someone in Indonesia is willing to make shoes for 50 cents per hour, it's because he considers that a good wage.

    It is impossible to answer a question like this without knowing the cost of living. If you can get everything you need plus a little left over for 10 bucks a week, then 25 cents and hour is a decent wage.

    More than likely it is because that is all that company is offering.

    If you truly could care less how low their wages are is there really a difference between 5-10 cents an hour and slavery?
