Why is most of our manufacturing going overseas?

    Outsourcing has become very common among corporations in the US. This is often because it can save the company money. When jobs are sent oversees, the company in the US does not have to provide those employees with benefits. They also don’t share the cost of running that sector of the business, an expense which is called overhead costs. The outsourced jobs are also usually very specific, so the company across seas can focus on providing solely that service.

    In addition, companies sometimes send jobs overseas to avoid increasing land and property costs and taxes. Employers generally can pay employees less depending on that country’s wage laws. Also, workplace safety laws (OSHA in the US) may be much more lax in other countries. All of these things equal more revenue and possibly added productivity, both of which are things every business strives for.
