Every large company I have worked with has frozen hiring in high cost countries and only allow new people to be added in locations in cheaper locals.

When an onshore product team loses enough people due to retirement and/or job switching the entire product line is shipped overseas.

Nothing can be done to stop this. It is happening in Europe with robust worker protection laws and in Canada and the US.

The only thing that will stop this shift is a change in the cost structure. i.e. the cost of living has to come down in high cost countries but that will take decades with all of the vested interests.
