I think I mentioned this earlier, but this year I hired more foreign born (green card) employees than citizens. I think I also mentioned that I don't care as much anymore. They all seem very sincere in their motive, to become U.S. citizens, and most of them will. Offshoring still bothers me a lot though. Especially when, while the rates are less than we pay here, they are still many multiples of a StarBucks employee's salary. And then there is China, going gangbusters in every direction. Not to worry, I see movements to double the salary of workers in the fast food industry. Now if that is not an example of a nation ignorant of even basic mathematics, I don't know what is.
Same old game I guess. I want my son to do what he enjoys but I teach and push him so that he is never at the mercy of the "game".
