Insourcing Hits Close to Home

Um, for Canada that is.

My girlfriend and two of her American coworkers lost their jobs today. She worked at a company based in Canada.

Subtract three jobs from America.
Add zero to three jobs to Canada.

Prosperity baby, that's what I'm talking about.

Oh, and by the way, we live up here in the Seattle area. Can't blame this one on the housing market. It's holding up just fine (so far).

There's some good news. My girlfriend saw it coming. She already had an interview lined up (for this coming Friday).

There's also some bad news. Her coworkers didn't see it coming and thought she was being paranoid. In fact, one just bought a house a few weeks ago.
