27. Speaking as an American
2: No. Speaking as a non-American, I can assure you that there is nothing immoral about employing non-Americans, any more than there's anything immoral about employing Americans (do you think that companies that employ Americans but make profits in other countries should be penalised?). In a clash of interests between poor Americans and rich Americans, one should usually side with the former; in a clash of interests between poor Americans and poor people in other countries there's no such "presumption of rightness" on one side.

Speaking as an American, there is something wrong about companies receiving tax incentives, moving companies from cities where they've been 50 years and currently enjoying tax breaks, moving overseas to enjoy 1) slave labor wages; 2) loose to no regulations; 3) horrid worker conditions and inhumane working environments when the country they're currently in has 10% unemployment.
