Besides the United States Outsourcing Jobs to Tax Haven Ireland, Turns out There Aren’t Enough Trained People in Ireland for those jobs, but wait US Businesses are Also Recruiting the Irish to Work Here at Home in the U.S., Disregarding the Millions of Americans out of Work, Part 4

Update July 10, 2012

Click on titles to see the latest or should I say the same old story that these are the same jobs U.S. companies could not be filled in August 24, 2011.  Only thing different is now the numbers are 2500 rather than 2000.  In-spite of what these reports may say the fact is already discussed in August 2011 the the reason why there were vacancies because their were not enough skilled workers to do the job in Ireland.

US firms have 2500 vacancies

Irish Times – ‎Jul 6, 2012‎
The American Chamber of Commerce in Ireland’s annual workforce activation survey, which tracks employment trends in US firms here, shows that, of 195 US companies that responded to the survey, 75 per cent are hiring. With vacancies in areas such as ICT

On May 16 2012, National University of Ireland Maynooth conferred an honorary degree on Thomas Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, because of his push to bring American Corporations to Ireland. As the U.S. Chambers of Commerce underminds the American public and this Republican lobbyist organization is expected to spend millions on political campaigns ads against the President.

In March the U.S. Chamber of Commerce tweeted this.

uschamber: RT @FreeEnterprise This St. Patrick’s day, the Irish are not just relying on luck for economic recovery: http://t.co/iJaXl0UR

“So I can tell you that the American business community still sees Ireland as a good place to invest. There are too many strategic advantages here for global investors to ignore for very long. I’m going to make sure that U.S. companies get the message when I return home.” Thomas Donohue, CEO and President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (May 2011)

The things that are happening under our nose here and abroad. We should take a hard look at, while so many people are out of work how the U.S. Chamber operates. U.S. Chamber of Commerce pushes and tries to influence American companies to move to Ireland while there are Americans are out of work. The U.S. Chamber’s answer to that is to blame it on the President, while it is the U.S. Chamber that is undermining the U.S. economy. American companies under the U.S. Chamber’s Commerce thumb have gone out of their way to hire someone of another country, while there are people here in need of jobs and are just as qualified. I am revisiting this topic because it goes deeper than the fact that Ireland is a tax haven; while there is a recruitment for American Companies to create jobs in Ireland, there is also a recruitment for the people of Ireland to come to the United Stated to fill American jobs.

Another fact I like to point to is that there are 2000 jobs in Ireland but there are not enough people who are trained enough to fill them. I have included statements and Publications that claim this, such as statements from an Irish publication where Joanne Richardson talks about the dismal look of the Irish filling American jobs. Joanne Richardson is the Chief Executive of the American Chamber of Commerce in Ireland representing 600 U.S. companies. In that article Ireland recognized that they needed to increase their education and skills required for certain jobs, but yet the Irish are being recruited and are offered Visas by U.S. business to come here. Hence do what was the fuss with the U.S. immigration bills and laws.

(*** I first published this story in August 24, 2011 and as of May 26, 2012 it is possible for that 2000 number of jobs being unfilled could have changed)

So what of the millions of Americans here in this country who need these jobs. One thing about these jobs are that they are high paying jobs. Some of the companies in Ireland are your pharmaceuticals and IT companies.

Regardless of how well-paying these jobs there are 2000 jobs that remain vacant in Ireland. There are more than 2000 unemployed people in America that could have easily and readily qualified in filling those jobs from the beginning. You could not tell me out of the millions of Americans that there are layed off that there are none who don’t have the skills to qualified for those positions; we also have our college/university students who could have filled these positions. In January 2011, Intel was one of several companies that plan do create more jobs in Ireland. Intel announced a $500 million constructions project at the Leixlip facility that will producing more jobs in Ireland.

There is an increased demand for Irish employees to fill labor gaps in the U.S. hospitality industry, according to leading business organizations based here.Brendan Barry, the president of Irish Business Solutions, an employment agency based on the east coast of the U.S., said there is a great demand for Irish people to fill service industry jobs. “If I had the right people tomorrow, I would put over 100 people to work tomorrow,” he told RTE News. “Every one of those jobs are genuine jobs that I have on my books ready to fill if I can get the right people that can get a visa.” “We are targeting the Irish market because of the natural hospitality instinct in our culture,” spokeswoman Angela Herrington told IrishCentral.
“The level of customer service and educational level is outstanding and their willingness to go the extra mile is what makes the Irish worker so desirable.”
The company places over 900 people in hospitality jobs each season in private country golf clubs in South Florida.
“We offer jobs for prep cooks, chefs, bartenders, servers, bussers, hostesses, golf attendants and spa clerks,” Herrington added.

I have to wonder at the audacity that American companies have sunk so low they will try to make the American public that they are incapable of doing the work. I’m guessing there are probably millons on top of millions of Americans qualified for these jobs, and by the way doesn’t American companies seeking Visa’s for the Irish to work fly in the face of all those immigration laws and bills that basically signal out certain groups of people.

June 16, 2011
U.S. firms based in Ireland are struggling to fill over 2,000 vacancies, according to new research.
The latest ‘Workforce Activation’ survey from the American Chamber of Commerce showed that 90 percent of companies were eager to recruit skilled employees. Some 109 firms took part in the survey. The research also found that 30 percent of advertised vacancies are taking more than three months to fill.

The are currently almost 100,000 people directed employed in over 6,000 U.S. firms in Ireland.
Over 800 graduates were hired by the organization’s affiliated members in 2010. This figure is expected to rise by over 20 percent to just under 1000 this year.”

http://www.irishcentral.com/news/All-Irish-need-apply-Growth-in-demand-for-Irish-to-fill-US-service-jobs-123955934.html

Americans have been accused for our lack of skills, so I guess outsourcing was to serve the purpose of finding a qualified labor force for the jobs.

June 16, 2011
However Ms. Richardson said that the 2011 results continued to highlight deficits in key areas such as Mathematics and Sciences and points to the need for a continuous review of how these subjects are taught in schools.
“In the 2010 OECD Pisa Report, Ireland ranked 26th of 34 OECD countries in terms of mathematical literacy, and is described as significantly below average. Failure rates of almost 10% in ordinary Maths in this year’s Leaving Certificate suggests that our standings will continue to disprove. The Government has committed to improve our standings in this international report and this must be delivered upon, and will need a renewed focus on the teaching of Maths at all levels”, said Richardson.
“In terms of science subjects, we are seeing no discernible improvements in these subjects. Failure rates in higher level Physics and Chemistry are higher than last year and the State Exam Commission asks very pertinent questions in terms of the structure of the examination papers and whether students are being encouraged to take science subjects beyond their ability. These questions deserve to be studied in full and answered if we are ever to improve the overall performance of students in these critical subjects”.
Ms. Richardson said she was surprised at the drop in students studying accounting and the relatively poor results for higher level Business and Economic students. “Irish students have traditionally performed well in business subjects which have been popular career choices. We need to understand why students have performed poorly this year and take the necessary actions to prevent any further decline. The poor performance this year should be an exception rather than the start of a downward trend”.

How ironic when the fact is the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Tom Donohue has been saying for years Americans are not trained enough to do the jobs these companies are offering, only to have Joanne Richardson, Chief Executive of the American Chamber of Commerce in Ireland which represents more than 600 US companies in Ireland. Her statements were made on August 16, 2011 which contradicts years of what Tom Donohue has claimed. I guess she didn’t get the memo.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a strong hold of the Republican Party that represents businesses around the world. He has called the outsourcing of American jobs acceptable, but as she see from Irelands on headlines and leaders, that the they do not match the high profile jobs that are being offered in Ireland. Here is just one statement of Tom Donohue with an interview with Lou Dobbs in May 3, 2004 about Americans and their level of education to the job. I have included one statement hear and the rest below towards the end of this blog to demonstrate the hypocrisy of those that had helped and encouraged the outsourcing of American jobs. If you had to rank who has been mostly involved and outspoken in outsourcing American Jobs, Tom Donohue from every instances seem to be the one ranking number one on that list. To see the weblink to that interview I have provided as well as the rest of Donohue’s statements between Lou Dobbs involving Americans and job the job skills/educationthey can be found below. (This was not the only time Donohue referred to American’s lack of skills for a reason to outsource)

May 3, 2004
DONOHUE: All of the intellectual property at home here and the profit’s coming here. Last sentence. The big fundamental issue that we need to understand is we are short of skills in this country. Five years from now we’ll have 10 million skilled jobs and we haven’t got the people to fill.

DOBBS: Let’s talk about this straight up. One, we’re not outsourcing because we can’t find the talent here. We’re outsourcing because of the Mackenzie study verifies it, (UNINTELLIGIBLE) will verify it, because if’s cheaper expect if we’re not doing on that basis, I’d love — we got over 600 companies right now, it’s growing rapidly, of people who can’t find the talent in this country, then shame on you guys. Because…

Back then even in 2008 their was a recognition of Ireland growing dependence on Foreign countries, one of the main ones being the United States.

Nov 5, 2008
Shapiro said, “Ireland must wean itself from dependence on FDI. A low corporate taxation rate is not the most important factor moving forward, it goes beyond that. The next stage is not FDI but a series of policies that actively promote spillovers from FDI corporations to Irish indigenous firms. The best way forward is for young Irish people to become entrepreneurs and force existing business to compete and become the best in the world. If you look at the Chinese model, FDI is a transitional strategy, not an end game strategy, that creates a lasting impact. The key to Ireland’s next stage is to make the entire economy a modern economy and not one that depends on the success of foreign companies.”
Aoife Corcoran came to the U.S. on a trial basis three months ago and is working as a trainee bar manager in the Galway Bay Bar and Restaurant in Annapolis, Maryland.
“I am the only Irish person working here in this bar,” she told RTE news.
“I thought I was going to come, earn some money and leave again but they really want to get people involved here, it’s completely different.”

From Paul Gleeson, consul general of Ireland, a letter sent to the Charlotte Observer (Advertisement???):

These are exciting times for the relationship between Ireland and the Carolinas. Three months ago, the ribbon was cut on Ireland’s first ever consulate in the American South and our first new consulate in the United States since 1933. The consulate, which is based in Atlanta, will be charged with building better business, tourism and education linkages between Ireland and states like North Carolina. And the timing could not be better in that respect; on May 14th, direct daily flights commenced between Charlotte and Dublin, Ireland’s capital city, courtesy of US Airways.

That is good news for Irish businesses looking to explore all North Carolina has to offer and we are planning a trade mission for September to highlight exactly those trade and investment opportunities. We believe it is good news too for the many dynamic Charlotte businesses looking to expand into new markets overseas. Ireland has suffered from a property market collapse and its effects on our public finances and banking system, but we remain one of the top 10 easiest places in the world to do business, according to the World Bank. We have a low corporate tax rate of just 12.5 percent, making us a superb option for foreign direct investors looking for an English-speaking gateway to the European Union. We also have a highly skilled, highly educated workforce – the World Competitiveness Yearbook ranks Ireland fourth in the world for availability of skilled labor, fourth for having a culture open to new ideas and sixth for labor force productivity. Irish labor costs have also improved relative to other eurozone economies. There is good reason why eight of the top 10 global pharmaceutical companies choose Ireland as a place in which to do business.

President Barack Obama will visit Ireland next week and we hope tourists and university students in Charlotte will also consider making the trip. There is outstanding value currently, with costs down across the board, and whether your preference is for luxury five-star castle hotels or our famous bed-and-breakfasts, you can be guaranteed our traditional 100,000 welcomes. Ireland is also one of the fastest growing destinations for U.S. study abroad students. And with Dublin about to assume the mantle of European City of Science in 2012, there is great potential to develop new linkages with North Carolina’s formidable research triangle and some of the brightest researchers anywhere in the world.

This new chapter in the long and inter-twined story of Ireland and North Carolina promises to be an exciting one and will hopefully do justice to those who came before. For more than 250 years – since Arthur Dobbs from county Antrim in Ireland served as governor of North Carolina from 1754 to 1765 – people from Ireland and of Scots-Irish and Irish descent have played a hugely significant role in the history and growth of this part of the world. These remarkable men and women helped to build and then re-build the South and are the reason Irish customs and traditions continue to thrive today in states like North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee. It is our hope that the new consulate can somehow pay tribute to that incredible legacy. And that is perhaps best accomplished by building new linkages in business, science and culture of which generations past could not have dreamed.

Lou-Donohue interview (Statements on education and outsourcing)

DONOHUE: Let me take the issue, the domestic issue. That’s when you go to the northeast and the Midwest states like Ohio and Michigan and somebody said all of the jobs have gone away. Many of them have gone to the south and the southwest. The second issue, people don’t outsource just for price. They outsource for confidence and for skill. And the insource issue I’m talking about comes in two forms. Number one, they’re the absolute service, when people come here to buy services and get jobs done here whether it’s finance, ill’s labor, it’s clerical, whatever it is, and that’s $60 billion a year more than we outsourced. The third issue goes on the question of why do people outsource and why do we support it? First of all, I was just there and then you go in those places and it’s full of American products, but the fundamental issue.

DONOHUE: All of the intellectual property at home here and the profit’s coming here. Last sentence. The big fundamental issue that we need to understand is we are short of skills in this country. Five years from now we’ll have 10 million skilled jobs and we haven’t got the people to fill.

DOBBS: Let’s talk about this straight up. One, we’re not outsourcing because we can’t find the talent here. We’re outsourcing because of the Mackenzie study verifies it, (UNINTELLIGIBLE) will verify it, because if’s cheaper expect if we’re not doing on that basis, I’d love — we got over 600 companies right now, it’s growing rapidly, of people who can’t find the talent in this country, then shame on you guys. Because…

DONOHUE: No shame on us. Shame on the education system.

DOBBS: And shame on you because you haven’t been a very impressive stake holder representative because in your community, what are you doing for education, what you’re permit in the political system, with your wealth and your power and your influence with public education is inexcusable.

DONOHUE: I would like to thank the American business community to run the public education system.

DOBBS: I didn’t say run it. I said influence it.
