Interesting look at how offshoring squeezes U.S. middle class

A friend of mine pointed out this very thought-provoking piece from the New York Times. I just finished reading the Steve Jobs biography, and I lived in San Jose when Apple was founded and started to grow. Today, I edit a magazine for the woodworking industry, an industry dramatically challenged by overseas manufacturing and new technology. All of this makes me wonder what we have wrought. In emphasizing what Steve Jobs called "insanely great" products, we've lost track of the workers in the equation. Maybe that's a little insane, too.
