Outsourcing is the process of taking away jobs from Americans and replacing them with people in other countries who will accept a smaller wage for the same task.  I find this to be an important subject considering a lot of Americans are suffering from unemployment.  I think that our countries first priority should be helping out our fellow Americans rather than saving money to give someone in another country the job instead.  I believe this is a problem not only due to the unemployment in America, but also because the people they are giving these jobs to are not as qualified as most Americans are, and therefore America is in fact paying less, but for less efficient service.  People lose their jobs all the time due to this outsourcing and I think that is not fair because it shows that although our country takes steps all the time in trying to help the unemployed, they are not stopping the one of the main causes of it.
