    name of the game today is oursourcing.  Let specialists do all the dirty

            'If' is the key word indeed.


            Ah, one of the many corporate euphemisms for jobcuts.  It's a bit
    like collatoral damage in military jargon.


    Outsourcing is another word for paying people starvation wages. they can do
    it cos there is some poor sod ready to take thier place if they don’t like
    it, and no social security. Things may be ok in the West ( though we are not
    without our problems), but they sure ain’t in other places.

    And no i'm not left wing, i just don't blind myself to the fact that
    capitalism has its problems, as well as its benefits. If the win win
    scenario was applied it might help. Unfortunatyly, trade is rarely between
    equals, so the win win scenario is not used.
