What makes you think they will give the jobs back when they can profit from it.

No. Because without the demand, hiring more employees would simply put you on the fast track to being broke. It's like having a lemonade stand, and nobody is buying. Would you hire more employees? Or wait until the demand went up? Think about it........

Outsourcing is why America is a rich country. Think about it. In China they make shirts, TV sets, toys, plumbing parts and all sorts of other stuff. Much of this gets shipped to the USA.
