Track offshoring of Ohio jobs

Working America has unveiled a new web tool, "Job Tracker," to identify what companies in any location are engaged in outsourcing.

It looks pretty idiot-proof. Just enter a zip code or industry or company and it produces results. The zip code method generates a regional report.

Admittedly, outsourcing and offshoring are complicated problems. But clearly, the one-sided, naive and short-sighted support coming from some sectors of the business community and the Bush administration is insane.

In the words of Treasurey Sect. John Snow, "You can outsource a lot of activities and get them done just as well at a lower cost. . . When a good or service is produced at lower cost in another country, it makes sense to import it rather than to produce it domestically." John - there is a few hundred thousands workers in Ohio that would love to outsource your hide.

Already, 1.2 million jobs have been shipped overseas during the Bush years.
