Chapter-5.4.2   Nine Signs We Are Under Judgment

5.4.2   The Outsourcing Of Our Jobs
 

One day while working for a large insurance company, I came upon the following verse:

Deuteronomy 28:43. “The foreigners who reside among you will rise above you higher and higher, but you will sink lower and lower.” *1*

At this time I will guess around 2008 or 2009, some floors in the corporate headquarters were predominantly filled with Consultants from Indea. American employees were being asked to train Indian representatives how to do their jobs, which were then being sent overseas, and the American employees were being dismissed from the company. This was not a trend happening in our insurance company alone, but in many companies across our nation! And if the jobs were not being outsourced to other countries, the entire operations were being moved abroad!

THE FOREIGNERS WHO RESIDED AMONG US WERE RISING ABOVE US!

This verse was being fulfilled before my very eyes.

In his artical, “Facts and Figures on Outsourcing”, by Rick Fulks on the LoveToKnow website (I am unable to determine the exact date of publication – estimate late 2010 or 2011) pegged the number of technical sector jobs lost to outsourcing in the 750,000 range. *2*. The top ten companies using
outsourcing at the time of the article were:
  • IBM 63,700
  • EDS 22,400
  • Dell 17,450
  • Cognizant 15,000
  • Siemens AG 15,000
  • General Electric 14,250
  • Convergys 14,000
  • Accenture 13,000
  • Computer Sciences Corp 10,800
  • Intel 10,426 *2*

In Katherine Peralta’s US NEWS article (published 12/11/2014), “Outsourcing to China Cost U.S. 3.2 Million Jobs Since 2001”. The title says it all! *3*

These figures do not begin to include the manufacturing sector. In Heather Long’s artical for CNN Money (published March 29, 2016), “U.S. has lost 5 million manufacturing jobs since 2000”, again, the title says it all! *4*

Needless to say, President Trump is trying to change this trend.

In total, 8.2 million+ jobs have been displaced from America since the year 2000.

 

THE FOREIGNERS HAVE BEEN RISING ABOVE US! THIS CURSE HAS RESTED UPON US!

 
America, where are you?  And how did you get there?
