I think this article does a good job of presenting the positive and negative
aspects of working overseas. My company Teaching Nomad has teaching job
vacancies specifically for China, we see people coming here for many different
reasons. For some it's truly because they can't find work at home, but
for the most part it's the experience of getting paid to travel the world
that people are looking for. I do believe that as our world becomes more
globalized, those with cross cultural awareness will be best positioned for
Everyone needs to settle down and take a chill pill. It's the natural
process of globalization and transitional migration of technology and cultures
from an empire on the decline and one on the rise. One hundred years ago it was
Great Britain and today it is the United States. Things change and when you are
number one, there is only one direction your can go, which is why my kids are
Both parties have failed to grasp what has been happening to this nation. (I do
feel Obama enjoys it.) We do not have the technology to build anything
electronic in our nation. Tool & die makers have nearly all retired.
Machine tools are phasing out of our economy. Steel...we still make some, but
less and less. Time/space does not permit explaining the causes and solutions.
The root cause of our problems rests with liberals. Destruction of our country
remains a goal of liberals everywhere. I don't see any hope for changing
Guys!?! Why are you looking at this for someone to blame. Read it again and
see what it is saying. There are opportunities to be had! Do you think when the
British East India Company posted someone to Hong Kong or Calcutta in 1850, they
whined about the Tory Prime Minister? No they gladly took the opportunity for
them and their kids! We have lived in 7 countries. My daughter's 9th
grade school trip was biking across inner-Mongolia and band trip was to Manila.
My son's soccer away games included Budapest and Sofia. They have seen
true poverty and income inequality. They love people from Asia, Africa and
Europe. My working skills have come from several cultures and I am better for
it. Whether we/you like it or not, the world is getting to be a smaller place
and those who see that opportunity will be those that benefit from it. My kids
missed their grandparents, but when they were home, they really cherished the
time. We missed much, but gained perspective in the trade. I am happy, my wife
Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush Sr. and Reagan all supported the free trade policies
that have transferred jobs to Communist China. You don't like
it now? It never mattered if you liked it. Congress was paid for and not by you.
Now we'll get a taste of what Mexico enjoys by leaving your
family and wiring home whatever money you can at the end of the month. Love that
free trade? Where goods are free to roam wherever they want but people have to
ask permission? Don't impede the natural migration of the toaster!
I also blame Obama,,, In his speech the other night and all through his
re-election, he touted over and over that the economy was growing and doing so
much better, when in reality , more and more people that want to work are
suffering and struggling to find work, because businesses are having such a hard
time keeping up with all the government orders, and health care is just the
latest...I fear we are never going to see the prosperity of the 1990's
into the 2000's again..And when everyone realizes that all the money and
effort that go into giving to people that have no intentions of ever giving
back, is going to break this country
Right on!Look how well it has worked for Edward Snowdon!
Come on Thid Barker . . . How can you blame Obama for the failed policies of
Right Wingers?The best thing self-described "Conservatives"
can do for this nation is just stand back, stop obstructing progress, and let
the Democrats fix all those horrendous Right Wing Mistakes.
How very sad what America has become. Thank you Obama!
