How do you outsource engineering and software jobs? Serious question, wouldn't they then just be Chinese jobs?

Outsourcing is usually referred to with unskilled labor.

Tons of skilled jobs are outsourced, particularly anything you can do over a computer. Like programming and animation.

Outsourcing of animation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sure, there are racist people in Germany. Just as there are racist Chinese in Canada. Just as there are racist African Americans in the USA. Just as there are racist white people France. It doesn't mean the country as a whole is racist.
I prefer not to judge based on racists in a given country, area, city or forum.

I judge based on the reactions to it. How accepted is it, and how many people call it out as being wrong.

software jobs are outsourced to india, and the filipines for lots of solid code writing for extremely cheap. The north americans then discover tons of bugs in the code and fix it but overall it's cheaper. they're certainly not unskilled but the skill and attention to detail is much less than here, for a tiny fraction of the cost. outsourcing at its finest.

software jobs are outsourced to russia and germany for superior skill for varying prices compared to here - they are extremely skilled in those two countries with software.

engineering is outsourced to china, yes i meant "chinese jobs" for that one lol

You see similar concepts in the oil and gas business too, involving shady construction mehods that have to be routinely reworked to Canadian standards, but ultimately cuts corporate costs.
