Let's be outraged by corporate job deletion


Corporations behaving badly

"Georgians to Legislature: Make job creation top priority" was the headline of the Atlanta Journal and Constitution this weekend.  Why wasn't the headline "Georgians outraged at multinational corporations for automating, outsourcing and exporting way too many jobs"?  Is it better for the world to build stuff half way around the world and transport it here?  It's only better for the corporate bottom line not for you and me.  Unfortunately our system rewards this behavior, and we tolerate it.
