They are currently replacing older US, UK, CA workers with younger, less expensive foreign remote workers. (Indian, Mexico, Manila). It's their 2020 strategy to save a dollar.

The headquarters was moved out of the US a few years ago. It was thought in order to work with other nations they didn't want their location seen as centered here. I was told the US is seen as bullies. Now as much as legally possible they are replacing all workers with foreign workers, or filling the gaps with them.

It's the outsourcing of the American workers. It's called globalization.
