Outsourcing of jobs has been going on for quite some now. Outsourcing has many pros when it relates to me. Personally for someone like me who is an Information Science major, outsourcing can benefit me in the aspect if I am looking for jobs outside of the U.S.  For example, if I was looking to apply for a job in India, companies would be more inclined to hire or offer a job to someone who has studied in the U.S. with some relative working experience as compared to someone in India who has little or no working experience. In relation to the United States, outsourcing hurts the country. With the introduction of outsourcing many people have lost their jobs since companies and large corporations can pay someone else much less in an another country to perform the same tasks that you do.  Companies can cut many costs and taxes they would have to abide by if it were in the United States.
