    If the minimum wage is $7.50/hour and your work is only worth $6/hour then your ass is going to be in the unemployment line. Its as simple as that.

    They sent those good paying jobs abroad because of the fact that they were paying so much. Nobody should get $40 an hour to build cars when people with University educations would be lucky if they got $40K starting salary.

    Last time I checked you cannot steal that which you do not own. If I as a businessman and choose to expand my business I can. The jobs I created are mine. I own them and can do with them what I please. If I choose to open a branch of my business overseas for what ever reason, should I not be able to do so? Are you saying I need to have permission from a committee who neather cares nor understands what I do? Should Michigan be able to sue Virginia because VolksWagaon moved from Detroit to Richmond?

    What does that have to do with the issue of buy American and outsourcing?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    You are free to move your business where ever the hell you want. However my country should be able to impose whatever tariffs it can to ensure that goods made over here can fairly compete with goods you paid some Chinese kids 2 dollars a day to make.

    Actually we replaced many of those good paying jobs with machines. Why pay a skilled spot welder a high wage when a machine can do it 24 hours a day without a single mistake?

    Scorpion ignores the reallocation of the economy towards a service sector base which has seen the growth of many high paying jobs. It's partially a reason why the real wage average hasn't gone down. Scorpion's assertion is mathematically false as if those good jobs were really gone, real wages should have declined. Instead, they have merely stagnated.
