Over the past few years many American companies have outsourced their businesses and manufacturing to other foreign nations. The companies participating did this to cut costs, but mainly to cut their wages expense. Wages in other nations are a lot cheaper than those here in our homeland. Many US jobs were lost to the increase of outsourcing the US Companies without taking their employees with the move. The employees here were left without a job and income which help lead to the economic downturn. Since the end of The Great Recession the US economy just recently experienced, there has been a weak comeback of lowering the US unemployment rate.
