Fiat announced that the new Fiat 500, a sub compact car, said to be the fuel efficient car to save Chrysler, will be build in Mexico. In reorganizing Chrysler the Dodge Mini Van and several of the Charger line (built in the US) will be eliminated. The US backing two Green Car Companies with large loans which creates new job for Europe and the car is designed for the rich – selling for $90,000 to $110,000 each. So much for Creating Jobs in America.

Well, put yourself in the companies' owners shoes, if your business was going down the drain and had to choose between two employees, one who is American that will ask you for 20/hr or a foreign guy (not an illegal immigrant) with the same qualifications but will cost you 5/hr Is a very debatable discussion but very simple at the end. You can't blame the decision makers, after all they have to look up for themselves first.

I can see your point in there. I am having the same thought like yours. Being a citizen in a third world country that decision by US employers to outsource their labor outside the country is a very much welcomed decision. I am sorry that labor in the US is affected by these outsourcing policy being adopted by some other companies but I think they are just thinking for the survival of their businesses as well.
