    They don't ship jobs off because of "regulatory burdens", they ship them off for cheap labor in countries that are not fortunate enough to have the kinds of protections we take for granted here. Decent working conditions and living wages are not burdens. Sorry. I don't feel bad that Burger King, a multi-billion dollar fast food chain, doesn't want to pay it's workers back at least half of the value their labor creates for the company.

    Wait - what? Burger King isn't buying Horton's for the cheap labor. And Canada is a pretty fortunate country. BK won't be outsourcing most jobs and the working conditions and living wages won't be sacrificed.

    Why should Burger King do that? They aren't a welfare organization, they are a for profit business. If you dont like it, dont eat there. Maybe you should open up your own burger chain and compete with them if you think you know better. I am sure there aren't many regulator hurdles out there to stop you.

    You can't outsource food preparation. The shipping time is well in excess of target times for Burger King.

    I don't have an issue with outsourcing per se, but I do object to the government encouraging it. What this person did as a business person is dealing with his environment. What he would do as a legislator is highly relevant.

    I wouldn't brag about it, though the man does have a point.

    I remember when anti-2nd amendment trash used to say the same thing about OBama. Sure he tried to ban guns at he state level, but now that he is president he won't attempt do that you are just paranoid.Then some mas shootings that the media cared about happened and Obama came out of the anti-2nd amendment closest. I guarantee that cock sucking anti-American piece of **** running for office will encourage outsourcing once he is government and he has the opportunity to do so.

    I agree. BK technically isn't outsourcing anything that I'm aware of.

    I don't eat there and that doesn't change anything.
