I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
The amount a worker costs an employer per hour is usually a good bit higher than what the worker makes per hour.
If I paid a guy $30, he was usually costing me more than $50 an hour.

The fair thing to do would be to find out if American workers would like to move to China for a better job.
Maybe they'll get lucky. Maybe their son will get picked on. Maybe he'll hate it. Maybe he'll seek to defend himself through the instruction of a washed-up maintenance man.
Wait, that sounds familiar...
GM by forming the JV for hybrids and electric vehicles will sell more cars then it would otherwise, make more money then it would have otherwise, it will be able to support more R&D in the US then it would otherwise, GM shareholders will make more money then otherwise. Heck GM might be able to export high value parts to China to be put in these vehicle creating jobs
But no jobs were lost, and no jobs would have been created in the US if GM did not form this JV. As GM would not be able to have sold the electric/hybrid vehicles in China if they were not made in China (labour costs and the chinese credit)
Conservatives believe the government is incompetent, and seek to elect people who will prove it
Ignorance is Bliss Bliss is the same as happiness US Christian conservatives are the happiest in the US according to studies Do you see a connection?

Most of the 2,100 workers here are poor migrants from the countryside who have come to this industrial hub in southern China for jobs that pay about $120 a month.
Qin helps make plastic toy trains for Wal-Mart, but says she cannot afford to buy toys for her 9-year-old son. "In four years, they haven't increased the salary," she said.
Li said these factories often require employees to work as many as 80 hours per week during the busy season for $75 to $110 per month
