It's all BS. Companies don't care about nothing but BIG BUCKS. I worked for Sylvania Lighting for 15 years and last year they closed the plant and moved it to China!
I am now making $7.00 an hour less and driving 120 miles round trip to work every day. I'm 59 years old and this is the best I could do!
I can't even afford to buy any more parts for my 1981 corvette, but at least I do not have to sell the vette, yet!

That must be the reason that General Mills' local cereal factory is full of people, with various 4 year degrees, operating machinery designed for the lowest common denominator of laborer. They are doing this instead of what they are trained and educated to do.
Going up to your ears in debt with student loans isn't worth it when the jobs are given to foreigners or the pay is lower than that of the average dump truck driver.
With this kind of crap going on it's no wonder people are giving up on secondary education.

I'm not a Kerry supporter, but...
The Heinz thing is a myth:
As far as jobs going overseas, most corporate businesses that don't outsource don't make it. One trend that has started is employers offering unemployed Americans jobs with the same salary as they would pay an outsourcer (Middleman) for the same job done by an overseas worker. For example, instead of Joe CEO paying $42K/year for a web programmer in india, he pays the same amount to an American worker.
Can't wait for the election to be over myself!

A question for the political genius' of the site:
If Kerry wants to buy "low cost Canadian drugs", HOW preytell, does this support American drug companies and THEIR EMPLOYEES?
flippity flop, flippity flop....

Kerry and jobs overseas...
I like how Kerry says he will keep American jobs from going overseas. That is pretty funny. Heinz, owned by you know who, has most of their workers overseas. He can't even keep his company here. What kind of example is that?
