2. How does it affect job availability?
The reality in some nations is that they are in need of particular skills but don’t have the manpower. On the other hand, others have the skills but because of low demand for a job related to that skill, people resort to looking for a job somewhere else.
Offshoring does not take jobs away from the people living in a particular country. Both work and job have no certainty; however, worldwide organizations who are considering offshore outsourcing must be able to establish a comparative benefit both domestically and internationally.

Certain factors affect what wages are given to outsourcing providers for companies that resort to offshore outsourcing. Among these are skills or expertise, experience or background, cost of living, power to trade individually or with unions as well as supply and demand. Factors that aren’t typically considered are gender and race. For location though, there’s no need to equate wages from the client to outsourcing provider.
