U. S. Outsourcing Millions Of Jobs

Posted on Thursday, October 20 at 11:00 by 4Canada
Some U.S. industries - from call centres to film production - have come to Canada. However, in a speech to a business forum organized by the Vancouver Airport Authority, Federal Industry Minister David Emerson said U.S. protectionism makes his blood run cold. "If investments are systematically and continuously biased toward the United States because of border risk, we've got some big, big problems in Canada." Yet much U.S. apprehension is a result of U.S. companies shipping U.S. jobs outside the country. Emerson's speech didn't touch on the fact that in an increasingly global economy, where corporations are able to subvert the rules we make to protect stable livelihoods for ordinary people, U.S. protectionism is just one element in the equation. http://www.thetyee.ca/News/2005/10/19/USOutsourcing/ [Proofreader's note: this article was edited for spelling and typos on October 20, 2005]
