but my main question is globalization good? what do families do when there job is lost to someone in other country who can do same job cheaper
there are lot of jobs which are being off-shored on the basis of cost, those are are left jobless have to settle with lower wages and impacted their family life so are we in a vicious circle where corporate will continue to offshore jobs then how does the economy survive when people don't have jobs they don't spend economy is impacted or am i making it too simple and there is a wider good for everyone in this
yes it may not belong to campaign forum but still a question in terms of how people are getting impacted by globalization and job loss and is there a better approach!!
If its not a campaign within the remit of this board, it goes there - esp if it involves non-uk considerations.
i think what everyone needs to remember is that person in another country doing the job cheaper is just the same. they're trying to support their family too. people (not you specifically, but i see it a lot especially in rags like the daily mail/express) blame these 'foreigners' for stealing their jobs instead of lobbying the blame at the feet of the people who truly deserve it: the big bosses who do everything they can to get most profit for themselves. they're the ones cutting costs to fatten up their shares and bonuses.
the disparity between the 1% and the 99% is SHOCKING. yet our government is complicit in continuing to let it happen. trump's administration are complicit in letting it happen. those factory jobs are never going to come back to america. he knows that, the businesses know that, everyone knows that except the people desperate enough to believe the lies. the royal bank of scotland, that was bailed out by OUR taxes, posted a loss of billions. yet their bankers continue to cash in their big salaries. same with the rail services. delays on end yet big bonuses for the bosses. even government itself.
the inheritance tax that hugh richard louis grosvenor avoided on his £9 billion fortune due to our tax loopholes would have paid for the NHS deficit.
little bit off topic but tell me who is UK/america first for? because it sure isn't the regular people who live there.
