The US Department of Labor has certified more than 93,000 jobs have been lost to outsourcing or trade competition in the time since Donald Trump became US president. The figure was slightly higher than the annual average of about 87,000 in the preceding five years. According to Good Jobs Nation, a group that advocates for federal workers, more than 10,000 jobs at federal contractors have been sent overseas since Trump was elected, or more than double the average annual amount during Barack Obama’s presidency. The outsourcing trend comes even as Trump has warned companies against taking jobs away from the US. In the Philippines, outsourcing companies continue their wait-and-see stance before further investing, due to the lack of any actual action against outsourcing in US policy.
