You wonder why companies move offshore?

While I don't like offshoring, what can you do when you have jury awards like this. A former Price is Right model took maternity leave and did not have a job when she came back-as a model. So she sued and got-8.5 million dollars. If this is just one lawsuit, how on earth can companies do business here-8.5 million because somebody decided not to hire you as a model??

I have never been a fan of offshoring. Lost my long time job to it. I think government should put tarriffs to balance the difference .

But here is a woman who was a model-not a rocket scientist or a nuclear physicist- a model. She gets pregnant and of course she wasn't called back. She gets awarded 8.5 million dollars for that??? I mean , it is not even gubmnt, but a jury that awarded it to her.

Why would a business want to continue here, unless they absolutely have to??? 8 million dollars for this??

The jury members must have been blinded by her beauty and the female jury members turned lesbian the moment they saw her. Maybe she (secretly) promised the jury to split the award. I'm sure APOCALYPSEFUCK is Shostakovich can figure out exactly what happened here.
