No U.S. Job Gains From Outsourcing

James Flanigan (“To Ease Fears About Jobs, Put Imagination to Work,” Jan. 4) suggests that we in this country have to “suck it up” and to somehow use our “imaginations” to suddenly and miraculously land a “judgment, or pattern recognition job” that won’t be outsourced.

Oh, please. How many underemployed Americans over 35 are going to fall through those cracks? He’s implying that outsourcing is no big threat and that the more jobs we lose now, the more skilled jobs will come back to us eventually as the international market expands.

Good luck with that theory.
