Dear Working Families e-Activist:

While working families struggle, thousands of companies are shipping jobs overseas. And while 8 million of us are jobless, the Bush administration encourages these companies to export America’s jobs.


Today, you can confront the tidal wave of job exports in two ways:


First, click the button at right to find out from Working America’s Job Tracker which companies in your community or industry are shipping jobs overseas.

Second, tell President George W. Bush to stop encouraging companies to send our livelihoods to low-wage countries. Click on the link below to take action now:


http://www.unionvoice.org/campaign/stop_exporting_jobs/3b6dsk2h7nbewn


Working America, the community affiliate of the AFL-CIO for people who don’t have the benefit of union contracts, created the Job Tracker so you can find out what happened to those good, family-supporting jobs that used to sustain your community. Check it out now by clicking on the link below:


www.workingamerica.org/jobtracker


Nationwide, we’ve lost 2.7 million manufacturing jobs since President Bush took office, yet he continues to push for unfair, job-killing international trade deals. We’ve also lost 850,000 business service and information jobs, yet he supports tax incentives for job-exporting companies. In fact, Bush’s The Economic Report of the President, 2004 flat-out endorses job exporting: “When a good or service is produced more cheaply abroad, it makes more sense to import it than to provide it domestically,” it says.


Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), in contrast, has a solid plan to create and keep jobs here in America. He will end tax incentives for job exporting and ensure that U.S. companies moving overseas don’t get government contracts.


Tell President Bush we need good jobs here in America.

You also can download a candidate comparison flier on exporting U.S. jobs. Print this out for yourself or take it to your local printer to make copies for all your co-workers and family. You can find the flier at:


www.aflcio.org/issuespolitics/politics/candidate_comparison_pdf.cfm


Please forward this e-mail to your family and co-workers and encourage them to visit Working America’s Job Tracker today and to tell President Bush to stop rewarding job exporters.


In solidarity,

How exactly?

Are these folks suggesting that no jobs ever went overseas until Dubya showed up? Are they saying foreign investment is wrong? Perhaps they do not like all the German and Japanese auto plants that have opened up here in America?

Just curious...

Those plants opened because of import restrictions, not out of German altruism.

How you feel about it depends on where they shipped your job.

The American market is the least restrive in the world. And yes, it was not altruism, but rather good business.

Nonsense. I would love it if no company ever shipped jobs overseas. But I am not going to unfairly put the blame on this President when this has been going on since at least the late 1950s if not earlier.

Anyone have any idea how to balance the number of job openings vs. the unemployment rate?

IE - I wonder how many vacant jobs are on the market.


Mike

There are a lot of job vacancies here in this country due to the lack of qualified candidates. The workers of today want high paying jobs with little or no training and/or experience. This can be traced back to the education system that places more emphasis on going to college than guidance into real world life examples. Not everyone goes on to higher learning, and the result is a good many industries with no entry level quality replacement workers.

I've watched as the job sectors have changed positions. We used to be strong in good paying jobs in the manufacturing game, but now we are strongest in the service sector where salaries tend to be less.

Cost is usually the cause of these jobs leaving America. What most people don't grasp is the more you pay your employees, the more you have to charge your customers. Then the same situation is repeated, over and over again until it comes full circle. So after you get your raise, the price of bread goes up. You're still no more able to afford it than you were before the raise. Add that to the increasses in workplace injuries and lawsuits, employee benefits, workman's comp and every thing else the regulatory agencies put in front of the business world, it's not hard to understand why the exodus is major problem.

I don't agree that shipping jobs overseas is a good thing for the working man trying to make a decent living, but some of the blame must be put on the same people who have been displaced.

I also think that this trend is a temporary fix and that the jobs will return, but it won't happen soon and when they do, they will pay less in terms of wages and benefits.

DANG, now that's awfully patriotic. John Kerry would give up ever having sex again in order to help the common working man. ( Cause you know if he takes away all those tax incentives from the wife...he'll never get any from her again.)

Hmmm, I wonder if Cheney would let Bush do something like that?
