How can there be such a thing? If everything is made overseas, what mythological faith in the future makes us believe that we can do the good jobs here, with the actual industry overseas? Why? They can more cheaply do the "high end" stuff overseas, too. What future does the US economy really have?
Heck, we can't even work for McDonalds anymore!
Of course, when the credit dries up, all the big box stores will dry up, too.Norm Augustine, former CEO of Lockheed Martin, says that even McDonald's jobs are no longer safe. Why pay an error-prone order-taker the minimum wage when McDonald's can have the order transmitted via satellite to a central location and from there to the person preparing the order. McDonald’s experiment with this system to date has cut its error rate by 50% and increased its throughput by 20 percent. Technology lets the orders be taken in India or China at costs below the minimum wage and without the liabilities of US employees.
