U.S. firms shift jobs from America to countries overseas

If we reduce the corporate tax from 35 to 25% those business won't send the jobs overseas, and the boom in our economy will be enormous!

The Wall Street Journal reports:

U.S. multinational corporations, the big brand-name companies that employ a fifth of all American workers, have been hiring abroad while cutting back at home, sharpening the debate over globalization's effect on the U.S. economy.

The companies cut their work forces in the U.S. by 2.9 million during the 2000s while increasing employment overseas by 2.4 million, new data from the U.S. Commerce Department show. That's a big switch from the 1990s, when they added jobs everywhere: 4.4 million in the U.S. and 2.7 million abroad.
