Many U.S. companies are hiring ... overseas

One reason why U.S. unemployment remains as high as it is

The Associated Press

Corporate profits are up. Stock prices are up. So why isn't anyone hiring?

Actually, many American companies are — just maybe not in your town. They're hiring overseas, where sales are surging and the pipeline of orders is fat.

More jobs created out of the country, than in. :( Maybe things will look up in '11 in this area.

We all know that out sourcing has been going on for a long time and now there are reasons for it to keep growing. Big companies, especially the ones that are so big they're international could care less about what country they hire people from unless it is affecting profit. I'm sure if they can pay someone less in another country, they will hire that person. Maybe people in the US may have to start moving to other countries to get jobs, just like how people were coming to the US to get jobs. Who wants to come to the US now? That trend has been changing very fast. I guess it's all part of the "change" we kept hearing about.

Well, it looks more like the current out sourced jobs are not coming back to the US any time soon and more jobs will keep going out every day. Probably with the way companies operate in today's sickening climate, the only way for jobs to come back to the US is for the government and the banks to keep doing what they've been doing for a while.
