Jobs and Joblessness

I found this piece in the Mercury News about a Tech group warning of global competitors very interesting. They say that "There is no job that is America's God-given right any more. We have to compete for jobs as a nation."

I have been thinking about this for a long time. As a culture, we always choose the lowest price. We do not choose higher price items that keep jobs in the country. For us to keep on doing this, our labor has to become more valuable. We have to prove why we deserve to make the money we make. If we try to protect jobs from being offshored, the companies that cannot do that will lose their edge to foreign companies.
