(noun) An excessive desire to acquire or possess more than what one needs or
deserves, especially with respect to material wealth. This is the reason
that companies are outsourcing overseas... let me tell you folks, this is
not conducive to the US economy, and for that matter customer service.
Remember when commercial industrialization moved overseas because "Pharmaceuticals,
motor vehicles, and electronics would be more affordable?"
they were more affordable... because they needed to be. Thousands of
Americans lost their jobs to countries like China, Mexico, and Japan. Fat
cats in board executive positions did this so they could keep their
multi-million dollar houses and wives... though they had little or no
knowledge of what their company really did. The dedicated blue and white
collar worker got screwed.
in the mid-1900's America saw itself losing money and jobs to foreign
nations from such commodities as textiles, ore, and fossil fuels. As a
result, we came up with this little thing called a tariff tax. Like many
policies, this has not been revised for quite some time. Why? Peso-nality,
golden rule, economic advantage... basically, "greed."
you want to put an end to makeup wearing CEOs $50,000,000.00/yr salaries,
then make these outsourcing companies accountable for lost American jobs.
Increasing taxes to indigenous citizens while outsourcing jobs is biting the
very hand that fed you. The only resolve here is tariff taxation of
outsourced resources. Yes, employers complain that overseas technicians are
more educated... and to those companies, I ask, "How much investment
have you placed in your US employees in the last five years?"
the rich! Hold your position! Now I do not recommend aliasing out your
administrative scripts to the point that Apu will never be able to
understand your dialogs, and nor do I recommend that you hide logic bombs or
trojans, take a moment if you will and inform your employer that you
understand and are compassionate about your company's success goals, but
ensure them that only you can do "your" job... after all, they did
the same to the board.
Dick went to confuse the board on it's projected earnings, you diligently
did your best to ensure that the latest worm would not affect your company's
resources. He got a $5,000,000.00 bonus... and you, got to keep your job?
Remember the logistics managers are a part of the (L) users group. Seldom if
ever do they understand the toil you go through day-to-day, and they remind
you that they could replace you in a heartbeat... unless of course? If you
don't believe me, then please feel free to press 5, 7, 2, 9, #, 4, and 1, at
the sound of the tone... followed by your pin number, company number, and
SLA number... followed by the # sign. We'll get back to you as soon as a rep
