Description
 
Offshoring, also known as offshore outsourcing, is the term now being used to describe a practice among companies located in the U.S. of contracting with businesses beyond U.S. borders to perform services that would otherwise have been provided by in-house employees in white-collar occupations (e.g., computer systems designers). The term is equally applicable to U.S. firms offshoring the jobs of blue-collar workers on textile and auto assembly lines, for ex., which has been taking place for decades. The extension of offshoring from U.S. manufacturers to service providers has heightened public policy concerns about the extent of job loss and foregone employment opportunities among U.S. workers. This concern is especially pertinent to policymakers because of a national unemployment rate persistently exceeding 9% despite the end of the latest recession in June 2009. Contents of this report: Introduction; The Development of Domestic and Offshore Outsourcing; Current and Future Prospects for Offshoring Jobs; Trends in Worker Displacement: 1981-2000;  2001-2008. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
