Do you think your America job is in jeopardy, or safe?

and before you answer, keep the following in mind.

Over the past 5 years, hundreds of big companies have cut thousands of jobs. I'm sure when you hear the news, you think, "those poor saps". But do you realize the flak that these job cuts cause?

Here is a partial list of companies that have announced either downsizing, or off shoring THIS YEAR ALONE.

HP, Kodak, Pfizer, Ford, GM, Chrysler, Hershey's, MascoTech, Dell (moved support to India), Best Buy, GMAC financing, Bank of America, Cisco, Krogers, Farmer Jack, multiple management levels at Home Depot, WalMart.

Now, realize that it is a proven fact that for every one good paying job that leaves your area, your local area also loses 3-5 outside jobs. Jobs that depended on the cash from the above companies employees buying things.

Hair salons, grocery stores, retail stores, accountants, doctors, dentists, lawyers, gas station attendants.

So I ask you, is YOUR job really "safe" right now? And why do you think so?

Update:

Just asking as I am conducting a non-scientific experiment... thanks for your time...

    Not my job, I am an automotive forensic expert and am needed to testify in court for Lemon Law complaints, I do think that if the American company would try and compete with the making of products a little cheaper it would cause more people to use the American company's, Company's move because the labor is cheaper so in turn causing things to be made cheaper else where, this is why were loosing jobs in America. I'm considering starting a sew factory for products that use cloth in there products in hope to keep jobs here in America. As for my job as a mechanic, not in the near future. Good Luck and God Bless your new project.

    No job is safe because of the trickle down effect. When someone loses their job to outsourcing , they will cut down on their spending at home. It's that simple. The best job security is in jobs where you have to be there in person and it is something close to what people need to live. Healthcare, maybe not billing, but jobs with people contact. Supermarkets, Post office workers, trash collectors, etc. The direction our country is going is scary.

    he's no longer A KING!!!! Nowhere does he have the authority to % that he could desire to alter the U. S. from the floor up. we are 50 sovereign states (as sovereign as a Honduras, France, or England) united by a difficulty-unfastened forex, a difficulty-unfastened border, and a federal armed forces. We have been under no circumstances meant to be merely "united statesa." the rustic, we are the "United.....States.....of united statesa." simply by fact the states are in North united statesa.. The states created the federal government and the federal government is subordinate to the states. He has no precise by any potential to improve one united states in his image.
