About this title


Spanning four countries, including the American heartland, Mexico, Honduras and China, this book tells the story of jobs permanently lost to foreign competition. Playing a global game of leap frog, an American manufacturer of wire harnesses (electrical system) for cars must abandon $7.50 an hour Michigan employees for cheaper labor south of the border. When Mexican factories are outbid by a Honduran manufacturer, the company moves again only to finally relocate in China where workers make $5 a day, exactly what Henry Ford paid in 1915. Beautifully photographed, this fascinating book documents the political, social and economic impact of an untold labor story that impacts workplaces around the world. Ron French is an award winning reporter for the Detroit News.

From the Publisher:

Students of Thomas Friedman's, The World Is Flat, won't want to miss Ron French's fascinating take on the new global economy. Here is a book that goes beyond everything you have ever read or heard about outsourcing and shows precisely why globalization is no panacea for the third world. A status quo ante approach destined to bring back the "good old days" of the underpaid and overworked, outsourcing has become a code word for chaos in many job markets. No job is safe as long as employers can pull up stakes and move in the middle of the night, leaving their workers shivering in unemployment lines.
