The AFL-CIO is providing a new online soapbox for employees who've seen their jobs moved overseas. The union has launched a new Web page that lists 200,000 U.S. employers who have engaged in such "offshoring." Dubbed the Job Tracker, the site compiles its data from a variety of government reports and media resources.
The union's goal: Lobby politicians to stop offshoring and boycott companies on the list. Find the site at www.workingamerica.org/jobtracker.
Advice: Take a quick look to make sure your company isn't mistakenly listed. If it is listed correctly, plan a response now to potential media inquiries.
