Well don’t look now but all of the Corporate American Management Teams
across the United States of America
have decided at least 20
years ago that outsourcing
the Design, Development and Manufacturing
of their Product Lines is
better for the U.S. Citizens that previously performed the professional career responsibilities, the craftsmanship and manufacturing Quality!
Just think back to the late 1980s
and into the 1990s
how management touted how important it was to obtain a MBA
and how Y-O-U
could help solve the corporation's problems. In 2001 & 2002
I was involved with a big reverse engineering project build at a Major Corporation while other department managers were claiming how wonderful their engineers and production staff were working together but
the upper (Greedy) echelon had decided to outsource
the product lines to help save money. The employees were informed that there would be some furloughed personnel. There sure was, all three shifts of engineers, technical supporting staff and naturally the factory production people. The only
people that remained were the managers without employees.
Good Oi' Corporation was furloughing personnel at an alarming rate and the people left were dumped with two to four other personnel responsibilities besides their own. If you couldn't keep up with your new and your own responsibilities, your management wouldn't help you succeed, no they would find a way to relieve you of your responsibilities even if it broke the corporations own Code Of Ethics and out you would go!
Engineering personnel and career responsibilities were being outsourced
to China, India, Poland, Russia, Japan, France, Spain, Brazil, U.K., Ireland, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Israel & Canada
just to name a few countries and our own U.S. Citizens
kept being forced out the doors! This corporation wanted to shut down a few facilities in India
but were rudely awaken that the Indian
Government didn't have a "Good Sense of Humor"
for that baloney so the Indian
Government nationalized the corporation’s facilities. Another miscalculation by the inept Corporate Expert MBAs
there were 150,000
full time employees worldwide, today there are 67,000
living and working outside the U.S.A.
non-citizens. Made In the U.S.A.
means nothing to our industries or our own U.S. Federal Government
and this concept has happened at I.B.M.
, other major corporations and at numerous Defense
contractors across the United States of America
. In fact you better pray that the U.S. Federal Government doesn’t involve us in another War with Japan
because Northrup-Grumman has their Military aircraft manufactured there.
The latest news this Major Corporation has been tagged with, is "A Chinese Female Spy Caught with Corporation Top Secret Software Files" regarding the "Worldwide Public Safety Markets and Our own U.S. DoD Secret Files at O'Hare International Airport!" Again, the "Corporate American Management 'Expert' Team MBA Members"
were caught with their pants down. None of those Executives have a Clue
regarding what the Communist Red Chinese will do to get at our secrets. Long ago I heard the Communist Red Chinese workers work and help their Government first
and every U.S.
corporation secondly. Ah Yes, "It's going to come back and place a huge
bite in the United States of America.
Here’s something to really think about, in the spring of 2004
, our Executive Branch, the Congress and the Senate colabrated with Industry and quietly Passed
a Department Of Labor Law
raising the bar for all U.S. Citizens to manadorily have 4-Year College or University Degree to be employed in industry or government. The Department Of Labor abolished people having non-degree job titles or exempt pay grades going forward, even though those personnel knew the career positions and could perform the responsibility as good if not better in some cases.
Now if you are sitting out there with up to 1 credit hour short of a 4-Year degree performing Engineering work or otherwise, you’re now considered a technician pay grade. If you have an Associate Degree which now is equivalent to graduating from High School, you’re also considered to be a technician pay grade. Say you attended a Vocational School for 1 year or longer, graduated with a Diploma you are working as a non-degree Engineer performing the same responsibilities that your engineering peers are performing, you’re no longer considered to be anything better than a High School graduate and will be removed from the career and company you devoted your life too. Industry considers you’re an instant I-D-I-O-T!
Now for you people that possess a BSEE
or a BSME
or whatever your major was in, Industry with the help of our Government has provided you with an advance step backward. Instead of utilizing your knowledge, the Upper Echelon has decided that you now need your Masters Degree
plus a State P.E. Certification
before you can Design anything for the “said” corporation that employs you. Here’s the “Catch 22” on the State P.E. Certification. You must work in your design field for two (2) years minimum before being allowed to take the State Professional Engineering Certification Test
and a Passing Grade
but you cannot
work as a Corporation Designer till you possess the State P.E. Certification and a Masters Degree in your discipline. Industry and Government have you people stuck between a Rock and a Hard Place.
Since our Middle-Class Americans are being dissolved and our Pay Scales are dropping, “Who’s Going To Finance the Federal Government’s Budgets?”
