The chart is also dumb in the fact that it compares job growth to population growth in increments of only 4 years. It is weak propoganda at best. Think about it, let's say there are 5 million kids born this year, but only 1 million jobs are created. That doesn't mean there is negative job growth, the job growth really only affects the people born 16+ years ago, which makes that chart extremely irrelevant.

You didn't know, IBM sold their PC division a few years ago to China's Lenovo.

No one is loyal to Americans anymore! This is a disgrace since American workers is what helped make IBM the giant it is today. I hope their stocks fall when this comes out, maybe then they will get it. While the execs make millions in bonuses, everyone else gets the boot.
So now that outsourcing is affecting you, you are concerned and want help.
Where were you when those manufacturing and IT jobs were sent overseas?
Now you will have in depth knowledge of what itís like to have to accept a job that pays less than half of what you were making at IBM. You will finally understand why America is in such a financial mess.

To answer your question ďwhen is this all going to stopĒ? When everyone is laid off and all the jobs are being done overseas, thatís when. After all isnít that why you care, because it affects you now.
