Grow Up America: Jobs Belong To Employers, Not YOU

So … when it comes to the economic ills that seem to have become one of life's routines, it ironically is we who bear much, if not all, of the blame.

More specifically, I am referring to jobs created by U.S. companies and whether or not those jobs should be offshored, or, as many of you routinely portend, do they "belong" to American workers.

We can start with the dispassionate reminder of America still being a society governed by the Rule of Law, and, inasmuch as sourcing offshore labor has not [yet] been declared criminal, all U.S. private sector created jobs belong neither to American workers, nor foreign laborers, for that matter.

Quite often we hear waxing claims that not only is it wrongful for companies to ship "American Jobs" offshore, but it is unethical and, in fact, some believe it is unAmerican.

Pathetically, many Americans are astoundingly ignorant, when it comes to business and economics, and their ignorance is a Leftist ruse to convert American sycophantic ignorance into "legal tender" for controlling minds, souls and votes. 

For far too long, we have allowed people to grow up believing that companies should feel obligated to create jobs merely for the sake of hiring jobseekers. From such thinking is to be inferred that companies exist to create jobs, versus its true purpose of wealth creating profits for its owners.

Yes, I am keenly cognizant of the belief among some millennials and others that companies should not be allowed to make and retain a profit. Then, how would a company grow and add more of those jobs that Leftists want to commandeer?

To put it bluntly, if a company is able to compete without hiring even a single worker, it would be "black letter" business prudence to do so. Why should it? Businesses are not charities, and I couldn't be more emphatically clear.

Cutting deeper to the political bone, the American consumer actually is his/her own enemy in this case. The trend of jobs being moved offshore exists because Americans are uncompromising in their pursuit of a narcissistic, high "quality of life," while demanding that such lifestyle costs them less, less ... LESS.

Just how many times can the penny be shaven, before the nickel must weigh in?

Big Box retailers exemplify the consequences of this paradox. Their size, mass and buying power allow them to deliver EDLP (Everyday Low Price) guarantees through sinfully brutal negotiations and, thereby, meet the ever-escalating low-cost consumer demands, while sustaining product integrity.  

Consequently, the sails that ferry jobs offshore are filled by a gale force called a spoiled consumer, low-cost expectations have become a subculture unto itself and show no signs of abating. 

If American companies are ever politically, socially or legally required to remand job-hires to on-shore American workers, a rude awakening would bring inevitable and extreme hiking of consumer prices.

Given that certain swaths of the country are under siege by organized labor unions, whose negotiated terms lock in heavy, inelastic price burdens for goods and services, all products and services would be required to absorb the higher cost of U.S. workers. Adding to this pricing model would be federal minimum wage requirements.

So yes, all jobs could fly home to roost, but at what peril?  

But, then, I suppose that is the cost of ... American job ownership.
