From Lou Dobbs show last night:
|An SI Board Since December 2003|
DOBBS: Each night, we are reporting here the list of companies, American companies, exporting jobs to cheap labor markets overseas. We have been asking for your help in identifying those companies that are exporting America. Now, we have already received thousands and thousands of e-mails from you. And, of course, we have to confirm here, our staff does, with each company, that those companies are indeed exporting those jobs.
It is a laborious, time-consuming process, but one that we are fully committed to. Friday, we reported to you first set of corporate names. Tonight, we add to the list the companies confirmed to be exporting America. And over the next weeks and months, we will be bringing you thousands of them, it appears, but tonight, Aetna, AIG, AT&T, Boeing, Cigna, Cisco Systems, Coca-Cola, EDS, KANA Software, Lucent, Maytag, NCR Corporation, a leading maker of ATM machines, by the way, based in Dayton, Ohio, and Prudential Insurance added to the list.
Obviously, we knew that there was a tremendous problem for our economy in the shipping of these American jobs to cheap labor markets overseas. That's why we began our series of special reports on "Exporting America" about a year ago. But I have to tell you, we have all been stunned at the number of companies all over the country that we are finding out are exporting jobs.
So we ask you to continue sending us the names of the companies you work for or you happen to know are exporting jobs to cheap foreign labor markets. Please send them us to at LOUDOBBS@CNN.com. We'll continue to report them to you each week as many evenings as we possibly can and to continue what has become a nightly dialogue on this critical issue.
