Foreign Companies Manufacturing in America

When our 'on-shore' is someone else's 'off-shore'

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

It might seem that globalization is a continuing and ominous threat to America's workforce. New York Times business correspondent Micheline Maynard, however, says foreign companies can help American communities — especially as they hire Americans in tough economic times. Maynard is the author of a new book "The Selling of the American Economy.” We're also joined by Amy Lindsay, a former Estée Lauder employee, now a factory worker for Toyota in Indiana. She tells us about her own experience switching from an American employer to a foreign one. Our own Todd Zwillich gives us an insider's view on the recent congressional decision to extend unemployment benefits again.
