Outsourcing has a solution, and the President and Legislators can help to solve this problem. To compete with foreign countries, the U.S. Government must create more jobs here in America for the American people to rebuild the economy and protect the environment. The Government should prohibit companies from outsourcing jobs to foreign countries and protect American jobs by creating programs that will help us make the change to new jobs. Job training opportunities, financial compensation like tax breaks for job creations, health benefits and salary should all be included. The U.S. Government has to give corporations financial incentives to keep the jobs here, such as tax incentives.

Now this has become critical due to increasing number of international assignments. Yet, this has placed a great challenge for international firms HR practitioners. In order to minimize these, they are coming up with different HRM functions that will help employees, which are from different cultural backgrounds to work together. One of these critical function is expatriate’s pre-departure training
In the past fifty years the economy of the United States has changed dramatically, whether it be the social or economic status. What can be said is that with the current recession that has taken place the lives of millions of Americans are being affected everyday. More jobs are being cut, and newer job opportunities are being taken away because of insufficient funds or lack of education. What I am planning to propose is a budget that will drastically change the way the economy has been looked upon in the last century. More so I plan to introduce a way to fit a newer form of a capitalist economy into the government system, mainly to increase the percentage of American work force between seventy-five percent to eighty-five percent to preserve better living conditions.
Efficient employee relations has become an increasingly important issue for employers, the inclusion of a diverse set of employee based functions has become progressively important for managers to consider as part of a wider overall organisational strategy. In recent times there has been a wide increase in aspects of employee involvement and participation throughout organisations. It has become evident that from further offering employees a ‘voice’ throughout a business; it can further lead on to concrete advantages for employers, employees and organisations as a whole. (Wilkinson, A., & Fay, C. 2011) As trade union membership continues to decline throughout the UK, employers attention has shifted on to forming individual relationships
As we have increased globalization and extended trading with the reduction of tariffs, the implementation of NAFTA, and the organization of the WTO, it has become easier for business to hire workers in countries with lower wages. This has caused many manufacturing workers across America to loose their jobs. Over the past several decades, as free trade increased, the gap between the affluent and the middle class has risen dramatically. Buchanan believes that free trade is brining the decline of America, and our government is doing it to our own nation. They are increasing foreign relations and trading in an effort to bring about world peace.
According to this perspective, the global imperative for outsourcing accelerates as firms evolve from sellers of products and services abroad to setting up operations in foreign countries and staffing those operations with host countries or third party nationals (Greer et al. 1999). Most corporations believe that in order to compete globally, they have to look at efficiency and cost containment rather than relying strictly on revenue increases (Conner and Prahalad 1996). As companies seek to enhance their competitive positions in an increasingly global marketplace, they are discovering that they can cut costs and maintain quality by relying more on outside service providers for activities viewed as supplementary to their core businesses (Mullin 1996; Grant 1996). Other researchers have identified several outsourcing issues, trends and strategies that companies take in establishing and effectively managing their outsourcing activities (Sinderman 1995; Carney 1997).
Do the proposed union rules by The National Labor Relations Board and the Department of Labor help workers and support job creation? Two major components of the proposed legislation are snap elections and the formation of micro unions. According to James Sherk of the Heritage Foundation, these measures would undermine employees’ rights and discourage job creation. Data from a Hearing before the Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor and Pension Committee on Education and Labor, on February 8, 2007 entitled “Strengthening America’s Middle Class Through the Employee Free Choice Act” will be used to support Mr. Sherk’s position. The final question is, what are the ramifications to employees or business owners who want to exercise their freedom of choice to reject unionization?
(Sasanow, 45) A recent survey shows that 18 percent of all companies made their matching contributions this way. Now for small, fast-growing businesses this would not seem as much of a risk since these companies' stock are generally on the increase. But for some large corporations, this is a great risk for employees since a lot of their retirement money is now based on how well the company does. Some say that because contribution matching is now based on how well the company does, then employees will strive to do a more efficient job in order to increase the overall stock price of the company, which, in turn, will increase the amount of retirement they will receive. Now the problem of timing comes in again.
Citigroup Corporate Social Responsibility Evaluation Corporate social responsibility has become a hot term in the past few years as corporations have become larger and even more powerful. Watch-dog organizations have been formed to monitor the actions of corporations and report “rogue” companies who do not mean their standards for being socially responsible. Recently, many companies have started to issue corporate social responsibility reports along with their annual reports. Citigroup, a financial services firm is one of these companies. Citigroup is one of the largest companies in the world.
