Alabama Puts the Out in Outsourcing
As part of a growing trend among lawmakers seeking solutions to the unemployment crisis, the government of Alabama is welcoming Chinese outsourcing projects to employ American workers.
It's a stunning reversal for Americans who, only a short generation ago, found themselves losing jobs to Chinese workers in the outsourcing boom of the 90s. Now, to those with the capital to invest, it seems that recession-ravaged Alabama is as good a place to source as any.
And politicians are only too eager to roll out the red carpet, with special tax credits being offered to offset anti-dumping duties for manufacturing processes that can be damaging to the environment.
