    Default More outsourcing of jobs

    We don't have young kids anymore and have no reason to shop at Toy r us but this shit is getting out of hand..

    Toys ‘R’ Us Brings Temporary Foreign Workers to U.S. to Move Jobs Overseas

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/30/us...-overseas.html

    For four weeks this spring, a young woman from India on a temporary visa sat elbow to elbow with an American accountant in a snug cubicle at the headquarters of Toys “R” Us here. The woman, an employee of a giant outsourcing company in India hired by Toys “R” Us, studied and recorded the accountant’s every keystroke, taking screen shots of her computer and detailed notes on how she issued payments for toys sold in the company’s megastores.

    “She just pulled up a chair in front of my computer,” said the accountant, 49, who had worked for the company for more than 15 years. “She shadowed me everywhere, even to the ladies’ room.”

    Time to send a message to Washington.

    When a company needs to increase profit they cut labor cost to the bone. Labor costs aren't every thing..they are the only thing. You may call it greed or you may call it macadamizing profit or you may call it capitalism at work. Why there are so many billionaires and millionaires in the US . they don't care!

    Maybe they are outsourcing jobs to prepare for a possible Bernie Sanders win. The money Toys are US saved by outsourcing they will pay the hit on increased taxes from the socialist Bernie Sanders

    Why do you have such a problem with corporate taxes bean? If they pay them, rather than dodge them, many a problem would be solved.

    Toy's R Us must be having financially difficulties.. They closed their "flagship" store in Manhattan citing high rent.. F.A O Schwartz in New York City was like landmark.. Saying they were looking for another location but that seems to be more smoke and mirrors..

    FAO Schwarz toy store in NYC closing July 15

    That is the main difference between the the right and the left. If Toys are US was certain the left would not win the Whorehouse they would be certain there would be no tax increase and possibly a tax cut which looks certain by all the repubs campaign promises. A tax cut usually stimulates growth and hiring

    The corporations pretty much run this country now. Don't see where that has helped any of us.
