That's by saving 1,000 American jobs being outsourced to Mexico. To those in the Rust Belt that confirms that they bet on the right horse on election day, November 8th. The symbolism can't be missed.
The incoming Trump Administration convinced Carrier, whose corporate parent is United Technologies, to forgo the $65 million they would have saved by outsourcing. In return, United Technologies will probably keep getting at least 10% of its revenue from business with government. Here is The New York Times article the Drudge Report links to.
But the question is: Can even Trump reverse the flow of jobs and one-on-one project assignments out of the United States? After all, complex global supply chains are the preferred platform for operating businesses in the 21st century.
And, on a more simple level there is dental tourism to locations like Mexico. Procedures there are billed at about one-third what dentists across the border charge. Will the new Administration be able to slap a surcharge on such services?
There are also middlemen like Upwork and Onlinejobs.ph which facilitate bringing American employers in contact with low-cost individual vendors overseas. For a white paper, ghostwriters in India might charge a fourth of what we ghostwriters in America do. If that's halted or even reduced, being in the ghostwriting niche can become great again.
There is that line from poet W.B. Yeats about not being able to able to separate the dancer from the dancer. Can the Trump Administration separate business from the capitalistic mandate to chase the lowest cost?
