American vs. Foreign Employees

Presidential responsibility requires much focus on both the United States' economy and the
labor force. In order to establish a thriving nation of successful commerce and secure
employment opportunities for all Americans, it is important to create policies to ensure
that these goals are achieved. Therefore, an essential platform in my presidential race
would be the guarantee that although businesses have the right to manufacture their
products overseas, a law should limit the ratio between American vs. foreign employees to
at least 2:1 in order to improve employment rates in the United States.

One of the major reasons the economy has been suffering in recent years is the fact that
employment rates have plummeted. Workers are deemed unqualified for many jobs, and while
lower classes struggle to find work, the upper class enjoys extravagant salaries. In order
to balance the employment rate between the classes, the United States also must provide
higher education in order to better train and qualify more Americans. If there were more
skillful workers entering the work force, employment rates would be fulfilled rather than
depreciative, thus improving the nation's economy.

It has become a common business practice to conduct physical labor overseas, because it is
much more cost efficient to pay foreigners to do a job that Americans would require more
pay for. Most corporations have established a distinct ploy that calls for
design/intellectual labor to be accomplished in the United States, while the actual
manufacturing/manual labor is done in countries overseas. This has caused a decrease in

But despite the large number of areas in which our lives are concerned with money, economics is more than just the study of money. It is concerned with: · The production of goods and services:
