Corporations in the United States have fired thousands of workers while outsourcing certain manufacturing processes to countries where labor costs are lower than they are domestically. However, unemployed people are not able to buy as many goods as employed people, so these corporations will see lower revenues in the future as a result of the outsourcing.

Which of the following, if true, most strengthens the author's argument?

a) Most workers who have lost their jobs to outsourcing have been unable to find new jobs.
b) Many corporations that have failed to outsource manufacturing processes have seen their profits decline in the last few years.
c) When a company fires an employee due to a plant closure, that company must pay unemployment benefits if the former employee cannot find work.
d) Proponents of outsourcing note that closing manufacturing plants allows the United States to focus on creating higher technology jobs.
e) The initial investment in setting up a plant in a low cost labor foreign country is generally low enough that it is outweighed by the short term savings in labor costs for many corporations
