    Why comment when it is easier to just laugh? Hides a lack of a valuable comment.

    its called Patriotism. some companies & corporations love their country and value their contribution to America's economic health, and some love profits more than their nation.
    I'll answer, not all companies have the ability to move to foreign labor markets. Large corporations can but not many small business, but many of the small and mom and pop businesses outsource jobs right here at home to 20 million illegals.

    Yes they do. As do larger companies. This is one reason why we'll still be talkign about illegals a decade from now no matter who is elected.

    you have to deal with the fact that if others in other nations are willing to provide equally competent labor for 3 dollars an hour, those who pay 30 and hour for the same labor are going to go out of business
    Do you think Adam Smith the author of the Wealth of Nations (1776) would agree with your comments???

    I beg to differ, a shop owner that owns a dry cleaners in Nebraska or a coffee shop in PA, is going to go to what country to outsource what. Or how is a motel owner supposed to outsource to what country to do or save what?

    Not at all. There are plenty of regulations on business now, that unions have become little more than organized thugs is apparent today. Tell me, when was the last time you can remember that a union strike had anything to do with safety in the workplace? Or for that matter child labor? No, they are nearly 100% today about strangling the business for ever more until that business can no longer sustain their business, then that business either goes under, or moves out of country, and the libs blame it on greed.....It's greed all right, greed from a small percentage of the total workforce that are only recognized as the workers of America by the democrat hacks that cater to them.

    YOu seem to have misread what I said. Yes they do refers to hiring illegals. Re-read.
