Outsourced jobs have extended well beyond the manufacturing sector to include white-collar professionals, particularly in information technology, financial services, and customer service. Outsourcing Americareveals just how much outsourcing is taking place, what its impact has been and will continue to be, and what can be done about the loss of jobs. More than an expose, Outsourcing Americashows how offshoring is part of the historical economic shift toward globalism and free trade, and demonstrates its impact on individual lives and communities.
