I believe outsourcing is detrimental to US economy. It takes many jobs that could readily be done by Americans. Outsourcing only leads to unemployment. Raising unemployment, all in the name if saving money. Outsourcing can be for any business, there is always a cheaper way for a large company to do something. Outsourcing itself has not directly affected me yet, other than having to deal with phoned in technical support from other countries and from other people that clearly cannot speak English. It very well could affect my future though. I am an information technology major, and information and technology both have very outsourceable jobs. Programming and information tech in general can easily be done by skilled enough programmers elsewhere. I would hope that in the future corporations will find a way to make hiring Americans to do these jobs more profitable.
