An Example of Why Our Jobs Go Overseas

A real world example of why so many of the jobs in this country have gone overseas - seen by me personally yesterday.

Two licensed electricians take 4 hours to run a 3 foot piece of conduit. Not the wiring, just the piece of pipe which will hold the wiring. The majority of their time was spent joking, talking about their golf game, answering text messages and calls. A good piece of time was spent figuring out how they can milk the job for a couple of more days and some overtime.

They left the job at 4:00pm, talking about how it was going to take at least another half a day to run that piece of conduit.

I am sure that these two fellows would be among the first to complain about jobs going to Mexico, or China, or India ...
