    LOL you continue to err. If two companies are in competition and one has to pay higher labor costs than its competitor for the same quality labor what does that mean?

    It means that one company has a better paid labor force that the other companies laborers probably would want to work for.

    that might be true if the competition was limited to the same state or city and the same work force. that once was the case.. its no longer true

    that is a fairly worthless statement since american labor is now competing against much cheaper but equally capable labor.

    I thought we were talking about America and jobs here moving to high quality lower priced labor areas.

    The guys who make 7000 dollar Perazzi competition shotguns have more orders than they can handle. Top of the line craftsmen are not at issue. Its people making American made general manufactured goods like forgings, (valves and heavy pipes) basic machinery etc who are getting thrashed.
