As a requirement for operating in North America, the big corporations must be forced to divulge where their customer service centres are located (at least their two biggest ones) - and then let the customers use that as one of their factors in doing business with these companies.

In all honesty if we want the US to rebound from the, for lack of a better term, recession we need to push our representatives to push and get businesses to bring their stuff back to the US.  Outsourcing is one of the big reasons our economy is having issues.  It isn't the only reason it is just one of the majors.  That and people thinking they are above certain jobs and letting illegals take them and send that money out of the US to their families somewhere else.  I am guilty of thinking a job was to under me to take it and I paid a high price for that.  I am just saying if we want things to get better we need to do what we can to get big companies to stop outsourcing our jobs.  I want to be a Network Admin and one way to get there is to do the grunt work, i.e. Helpdesk support or Tech work.  I like doing the tech work but that is not my goal to stop there.  Another thing is that people need to stop being so concerned with having to have the most money.  If you can pay your bills, get food, support your family and put some away each month into savings then I would say you are doing fine.  It is the mind set of, "Oh I have to have this $100 pair of pants over this $20 pair that is just as good."  Things like that I have learned the hard way, thankfully it was while I was still under my parents roof and wouldn't really suffer any long term damage.  I guess what I am really saying is learn to live with what you have and just because it is more expensive it doesn't make it better.  My favorite pair of jeans btw is a pair I got on sale for $5 at WalMart and they have lasted longer than any other pair I have had and they are the most comfortable.

I agree somewhat. They definitely need to entice them to bring operations back. However, the only way to do that is to reduce or eliminate taxes. If it is cheaper to make something there and ship it here, then that is what  they will do. Their strategy is shortsighted though, because by making all the cuts now, they will not be able to save money by cutting jobs later. I have first hand experience with the off shoring of jobs, and I can tell you that companies still haven't learned the true value of an existing company. In my area alone there have been several companies that have moved their entire overseas operations back here because of the issues with quality and service that arise over there. I have to deal with the same thing myself. The quality of the work is different.

I am thrifty, too. However, I have to draw a line at some rich, elitist politician trying to reduce my standard of living to equal others in other nations. I am a single parent with two children. My expenses only go up. If my salary keeps shrinking or goes away entirely, it has nothing to do with my skill. I have survived 38 consecutive layoff cycles over the last two years, because I focus on staying on top of things. However, eventually some clueless MBA that wants to make a $7.8M bonus will decide to eliminate a $60k position for 8 $7k positions, and not think twice about my family.

agree... people have gotten used to this absurd notion that they are entitled to stuff just because we are in America... also many of whom do have jobs act like they are doing a favor to the customer... well that customer will go online, make a few clicks and find another company that wants their business. If you are in IT, spend some time in the trenches, get smart, stay updated and you will be fine. Also, don't expect a bmw as a signing bonus.

The evil and greedy corporations (sarcasm) outsource because it's what they need to do to stay competitive in today's economy. Instead of wagging a finger at these companies and trying to make them feel guilty our government needs to get out of the way, reduce restrictions and regulations, reduce taxes, and get rid of labor unions.

If you started a company with the choice of paying Joe Union $30/hr or paying Overseas Inc. $10/hr for the same result the choice is clear if you want to stay in business and make a profit.

after listening to "The world is flat" it becomes quite apparent that the US companies have to outsource to stay in business. I would hope that the profit made by these companies are getting reinvested in infrastructure in the US.

 but lets be fair and not rule out greed. I mean Comcast is making "record breaking profit" and AT&T is the second largest Telecom and yet AT&T (still?) couln't fix a outage in San Fansisco for WEEKS, and cant support the iPhone load from NEW York, while Comcast caps bandwith because we use to much.

All the white they say "We have the best infestructure" and yet globally our broadband is in 17 place, for gods man Switzerland has more coverage then us, do you know of ANY tech industries in Switzerland?

AT&T and Comcast can act like DBags because they have very little competition and they know it. But that's another topic all together.

For some, it’s been easy.
But most have had to sweat it out.
The tight economy has forced out-of-work adults to take jobs that normally would have been filled by young people. And that’s left fewer options.
Competition from older job seekers is the top reason cited by experts and teens alike for the dearth of employment opportunities this summer, it
s hard to find summer jobs for 15 year olds now.
Eighteen-year-old Paige Kueck applied at a half-dozen places before finally landing a waitress position at Fat Boy’s, a Louisiana restaurant owned by a family member.
“The economy is bad right now,” Kueck said. “Adults are taking the jobs more than teenagers.”
Seventeen-year-old Monica Harris feels lucky to be working at Hardee’s in Monroe City this summer. A lot of her friends still are filling out applications.
“They said it’s just more hard to find a job,” Harris said. “They say they applied everywhere and couldn’t get anything. I work a lot. I appreciate my job because I have one.”

no doubt... the ceo's have started acting like politicians now... only care about the stocks going up when they are running the show... while running the company into the ground and jumping off with a golden parachute... f*ckers

As usual, nekollx, you have some good points!  In fact... you are on the verge of convincing me to move to Switzerland.  Good internet, good food, cooler climate (which I like), and lots of fresh fish... I'm there!!

What a real shame, IT is becoming more & more like manufacturing in that the U.S. can barely keep those jobs here as well.  I've been in IT for about 10 years & I'm very thankful for my job.  I'm currently studying Computer Forensics because that's a job sector getting larger in the U.S.
