Re: [hreg] Gallup going global
- Evelyn: We are living in an age of Globalizatrion, which has changed this world for better or for worse. Moreover, we live in a world where no one is independent, but we are interdependent. The whole idea of outsourcing started when Reagan tried to abolish Unions (Fired several thousand Air Traffic Controllers). This gave the green light to companes like GE to close many plants and send the same task to be done elsewhere. And then the GREED, and fear of environmental regulations, overtook the Corporate Moguls for more profits to get these items made in a foreign land where they didn't have to bother about UNIONS, benefits and pensions, thus keeping a lions share at the top of the Corprate Pyramid. The shareholders didn't care less at that time, till they faced unemployment from closing of plants, but it was too late to do anything. Thus the mighty prevailed over the weak - a fruit of CAPITALISM!----- Original Message -----From: evelyn sardinaTo: hregSent: Sunday, July 30, 2006 11:07 PMSubject: [hreg] Gallup going globalBashir:I can see how attractive getting things from China can be. They can always provide the least expensive everything including... ... hearts, kidneys etc. Excuse the humor!I can't help to think that the way I choose to spend my money and who I give it to, directly affects another human being somewhere else. Any comments on this? We have been recently chosen to do the global surveys. Some of our interviewers are in jail. I don't know if we will be able to get them out. I know some of them are just happy to be alive. They were arrested in China. In case you are wondering about how any of this is related, let me just say that I have no clue, but somehow it all connects in my head. Other than, we should start arresting interveiwers here in the U.S. too (LOL)....Do you think there are social implications that need to be considered? By the way, I as a consumer I buy articles made in China so I am not trying to be judgemental. I would like to know your opinions.Respecfully, Evelyn
