Tom Friedman from the Times of New York ( TONY ) answers questions about his recent work singing the praises of off-shoring. Read the article here.

A. Yes, the reason that white collar job outsourcing has gotten so much more attention than blue collar job outsourcing is because white collar workers tend to vote more and know how to complain and write Op-Ed pieces for The New York Times.


Do you agree with Tom's answer?

BTW, it is for Tom's job that a new person is needed.

Maybe. Maybe not. Part of the problem is that when blue-collar jobs were going, we were exhorting them to learn white-collar professions such as IT. Quite a few of them did.

Nobody's been telling us where we can find our new professions!

Unless you happen to believe the "we'll all become entrepeneurs" line.

BTW, how does the topic relate to the question?

Back in college I spent considerable time analyzing election data from NES (considered to be the most comprehensive data source in this area). It turns our there is little different in turnout across education and income levels. They may write more op ed articles (I never analyzed that data), but white collar workers definately don't vote in significantly greater numbers than blue collar workers (at least not on a national level).
