Unity in action
Charlie Kimber's explanation of why immigration does not lower wages was excellent (Socialist Review, March 2014).
If immigrants are supposed to lower wages, then you would expect the offshoring of work overseas to do so as well. But my experience is that this also isn't the case.
In 2000 we were outsourced with the specific intention of moving the majority of our work to India, ie we were subcontracted and offshored, working for our previous employer as an account.
It was not looking good.
