    i don't think the government is very effective at regulating anything, or doing anything else efficiently for that matter.

    As if the free market does a great job of regulating itself. Nice deep recession we're having.

    Why would a competing corporation hire them for more money?

    Yes....they could do that and still make money, but your argument rests on the belief that corporations are altruistic and look out for the interests of the workers. That myth has been disspelled for decades.

    BTW....I don't have "hate" for coporations, I simply disagree with the idea that so often gets pushed by the GOP that America and WE are lucky to have corporations and should be grateful for whatever they are willing to give us.
    I believe that Corporations are lucky to have America and should be grateful that WE as a country allow them to operate and should be happy with the large profits that our system provides them, without allowing their greedy tendency to always require more.

    You tell em' comrade, we'll defeat those nasty ol' capitalists. Let the socialist elite decide what's good for the people.

    What is the difference when you have the corporate elite deciding what is good for themselves and exploiting the workers for their own benefit?
