It would be nice if Phyllis Schafley used the correct terms. "Outsourcing" is when a company chooses to have in-house operations taken over by another private separate American company for a lower cost than paying their own employees. Often, the same people can switch to the other company and continue to do their job, just for less pay. All employees involved, both those losing a job and those gaining are Americans. This whole article is about is actually known as "offshoring" - sending the jobs to another country because employees there will work for less. If we're going to debate something this important, let's be clear what it is exactly that we're talking about. "Outsourcing" and "Offshoring" are two very different things.
