The Reason Why Assembly Directions Come In So Many Languages

If anyone has contacted any customer service help desks lately, then you know about the overwhelming amount of jobs being outsourced to other countries. We all hear about it on the news and in the paper, but don't really comprehend how widespread this problem is. Logistically speaking, how can it be cheaper to manufacture an item, warehouse it, ship it across the ocean, re-warehouse it, deliver it and sell it for less than a rival company on the other side of the state? I personally do not know the answer, but it happens everyday. Now that we have this "global economy", will today's workers be the generation that live below the monetary standards of the generation before? Are we as a country too demanding of higher pay and benefits from our employer? Just a thought.
