Is My Job Going Overseas?


A Backup Plan for Income Security

You've just heard a department like yours in the company has been eliminated with the jobs going abroad. Similar jobs in other companies have been downsized; no hiring. How long will my job last?

Sometimes our job is eliminated by technological advances. Other times it is caused by workers in other places only if service at a much lower cost. The mission for lower cost labor has occurred throughout history, and in the case of the United States, began with labor-intensive tasks transferred from state to state. Now, the jobs are transferred to other countries.

Slaves provided cheap labor in the South, while slavery was not common in the North. It has been said the Civil War was as much a war about future business and power going to the Southern states, due to a cost advantage, as that of the horrors of slavery and the desire for equality among people.

Online passive income comes to us all day, every day. Online business also has the advantage of flexibility. If one of our offerings declines, there are many other goods and services we can provide via the Internet to people all over the World-we are not confined by where we live.
