In GATS? I have no idea, but the scope is very wide. It only matters if government money is involved. If the government pays then maybe GATS rules apply. Generally it tries to make sure that everything is done via its partcular set of lenses. Yes, its entirely possible that foreign countries might be involved if they are cheaper.
“services“ includes any service in any sector except services supplied in the exercise of
a service supplied in the exercise of governmental authority“ means any service
which is supplied neither on a commercial basis, nor in competition with one or more
They (foreign firms) might actually be very well suited to certain kinds of work.
The problem as I see it is:
1.) Its depressing to wage scales, and likely to make entire industries pay much less than today, basically denying lots of people jobs that they might otherwise be able to do. Some of those jobs are really had and deserve decent pay.
2.) once ut begins it becomes an entitlement and cant be turned off, unless with withdraw from GATS which at that point might cost hundreds of trillions of dollars, money the ciounty wont have, because we’ll be reeling from the loss of jobs and tax money
3.) Also it will kill Social Security to have a great many perhaps more than half- the better jobs its entirely possible - skilled workers, teachers, nurses, doctors, IT specialists, engineers, etc. replaced by other ones who make much less (around minimum wage will probably be the norm) and leave after a few years wanting to take their money out.
