Why American are out of work
I've noticed that almost everything we purchase is made somewhere other than the United States.  As I was Christmas shopping I saw specifically an incredibly long list of items made in China: clothes, socks, shoes, handbags, wallets, coats, hats, under garments, umbrellas, dishes, silverware, glasses, cups, toasters, coffee makers, microwave ovens, blankets, sheets, towels, picture frames, rugs, pillows, furniture, cameras, cell phone accessories, calculators, office supplies, tools, computer parts, printers, book covers, blank CDs and DVDs, blu ray players, televisions, television accessories, yard equipment, building equipment etc.  The list just goes on and on and on.

The only thing I've found that isn't made in China is the food I eat, however, the containers the food is sold/shipped in is made in China.

Because hardly anything thing is made in America any more, Americans are out of work; not because they are lazy, unskilled workers, but because American companies are greedy.  They have all or most of their products made in China, then think they can sell the products to Americans who are out of work living off of an unemployment check that eventually comes to an end.

The worst offender of putting Americans out of work is Wal-mart.  I know Wal-mart workers thought I was trying to steal something in the store or was just plain crazy when I was picking up stuff and angrily putting it back down, talking to myself about how it doesn't make any sense for there not to be anything in the store made in America.

Another reason why Americans are out of work is because most corporations have all or most of their customer service outsourced to India.  Even the credit bureaus have their customer service in India in some cases.  Believe it or not, collection agencies have their customer service/collectors in India.  Employment agencies are based out of India or Indians own the employment agencies in the U.S.  I've done contract work for many years, most of which comes through employment agencies.  The last three years most of the recruiters who call me are from India.  An American can't even get a job as a recruiter to tell me about a job in America or call and threaten me to pay my bills if I can't pay.

It's a sin and a shame that Americans can't make a living in their own country.  I've half jokingly said I might become a citizen of China or India so I can get a job.  That might be what it comes down to for a lot of people.
