MN2020: Minnesota Ranks 12th in "Job Off-Shoring"


By Tom Niemisto, Video Production Specialist February 14, 2013

New data from the US Labor Department indicated that Minnesota lost 2,525 jobs to offshore outsourcing in 2012. That's 12th highest in the nation.

According to the Minnesota Fair Trade Coalition, it's a byproduct of free-trade market forces that put profit over standards. Jobs in technology and manufacturing have moved abroad, where wages and environmental standards are lower.

It's time to keep strong jobs in Minnesota with trade ties that strengthen the Minnesota workforce, not start a race to the bottom.

1. Why Is It

that you seldom see those who are supposed to be fighting for us in DC and closer to home are not the ones are ever concerned about the bleeding of jobs on a daily basis? Are they getting paid so well by those causing the bleeding? Are they paying far too much attention to their constant goal of election and re-election? Is it far too complex for their tiny brains to wrap it around such a basic issue of jobs/survival/roof over head/food for the family?
