    Default How do we end globalism?

    Outsourcing kills jobs in america.

    Employers have no reason to hire in america because it costs too much to pay workers.

    Legislation is led by special interest groups who sway the brain-dead majority whatever direction they choose via media and lobbyists.

    So how is one to end globalism and outsourcing in America?

    Increase wages for workers overseas.

    Actually there are many unfilled jobs right here at home, despite the unemployment rate. Various sources put the number between 3-4 million. Some of these jobs require more technical skills than the typical applicant has, but there are other reasons as well.

    From MoneyMorning:
    Too few young people are learning trades, so as older workers retire many aren't replaced.

    For example, one-third of all trades workers in Alabama reaching the age of 55 are retiring, and a lack of qualified welders has delayed the construction of a power plant in Georgia.

    "Too many people have turned up their noses at trade school to go to college, and now I am paying for it," said Matt Sher, owner of Day & Night/All Service in New Hyde Park, NY.
    And from The Atlantic:
    I've seen some surveys with employers who talk about problems finding workers with traditional workplace skills--showing up to work on time, having basic literacy, needing workers who can problem-solve. That's not new technology in play--some employers have always complained about these skills being absent.
    Unemployment isn't caused only by outsourcing. Americans have lost respect for jobs that don't require 4-year college degrees, and apparently have lost the basic work habits of generations past. Perhaps instead of exporting jobs we should import more workers - to set a better example.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Peter Schiff brought up this problem in "The Real Crash". In the past, young workers acquired work skills and experience as interns, but today there are regulations which discourage the hiring of young people and interns. The Obama administration passed regulations prohibiting companies from using interns to do independent work or to replace a full time worker. Companies can no longer hire someone to learn a trade under the tutelage of a senior worker without paying them a minimum wage, so many young people today are deprived of the opportunity to learn new skills.

    The reason for outsourcing is high taxes and stupid regulations. There is a "hiring tax" of around 22% levied on every US employer in the form of payroll taxes (FICA and MICA), workers unemployment insurance, and local employment taxes. The solution is to never vote Democrat; it really is that simple. Federal regulations result in a $1.75 trillion burden on businesses in the US and the states add another trillion in additional costs.

    Then the pay for those jobs should increase until they start being attractive. I hear this "young people don't want to learn trades" being said over and over, both in the US and Europe, but if you check the starting salary for trades, you will see that they're often very low. Thus, going for white collar jobs is a often a very rational decision.

    You don't. The only thing to be done is to sit back and let it run its course.

    That is of course unless you have a magic wand by which you can confine businesses to a single country.

    One would think the pay will increase. The "law of supply and demand" does not always work as advertised. The people I know in skilled trades actually make a decent living, the main downsides being (often) lack of health benefits and sometimes seasonal fluctuation in work availability, e.g. for roofers. Women have finally discovered these jobs, and some areas have programs specifically aimed at recruiting women into apprenticeships. It's about time. The pay once one has some experience is usually much better than that of the average office worker.

    Mandating a strict isolationist policy and destroying the economy leading to political instability and the inevitable collapse of society would be a good start :P
