10 facts you should know about outsourcing

Offshoring remains one of the most pressing economic issues of the presidential campaign, but concrete solutions appear as elusive as ever. President Bush White House advisers have defended the practice of sending jobs overseas as economically sound, though President Bush himself has been uncharacteristically mum on the issue. Democratic challenger John Kerry continues to call for federal contract work to be performed by American workers "wherever possible." To help U.S. workers find better, higher-paying jobs, Bush has proposed doubling the number of people served by a major job training program and increasing funds for community colleges. And on Oct. 22, he signed a bill that encourages Senator Kerry companies to reinvest money earned abroad in the United States by temporarily taxing repatriated income at a low rate. Kerry also proposed such a temporary tax holiday, but his campaign criticized the new law because it allows companies to defer taxes on overseas income.
