How is outsourcing affecting American Citizens, its not only taking jobs away from us Americans but is also hurting our US economy. Outsourcing is when a company such as Apple sends jobs overseas to a country such as China and has factory workers there assemble the product for a much lower price.

Outsourcing jobs does lower the price of products but jobs should stay here in the US to build our economy and give American’s their jobs back.

The products that are made-in-China replaced the made-in USA gradually and nowadays it is hard to find the products which are not made in China, all over the world. The US was the biggest supporter of the growth in Chinese Economy and the National power, unintentionally. China was able to take over world’s processing industry because America gave up the industry. It allowed China to become the world number one merchandise manufacturer in these days.
California Congressman Joe Baca once said, “Products made in china are cheap through the exploitation of the work force. Every time we shop, we are driving the nail further into the coffin of manufacturing jobs (Joe Baca).” Congressman Baca hit that that nail on the head, but whose workforce really being exploited? In recent years there has been much discussion of offshoring; whether it be a call center for when your computer breaks, or the manufacturing facility for the air bag that could save your life – what is that little label worth to you. The facts remain clear, every time a company closes its facilities to move abroad many Americans lose their jobs. At first people weren’t too worried when the low paying factory jobs packed up and left, but now middle class tech jobs, and even high level engineering jobs are leaving our country.

When the Gold Rush started, there was a really bad disease that had gone all over southeast China.

Since they did not find gold, they were forced to take on jobs, which were hard work and low pay since they were immigrants. Most of them worked on the railroads because "the Gold Rush had fueled the demand for rail lines to link the east and west coasts of North America."

In this flatter, people of US complain about the job, manufacturing things that moved to china because china being successful day by day to emerged as a center of manufacturing offshoring. The reason for moving to china is to save the cost and if one company move to china then the only factor remain for the rival companies to move their companies to china for manufacturing goods.
