Companies have one primary duty: increase shareholder wealth. That has never changed and will never change independent of where a firm is located. American companies have no such duty to what you speak of. And why should an American firm go bankrupt trying to compete by hiring works that produce a cost structure that is highly uncompetitive? Guess how firms get around this? By automating and firing their workers.Sure at the cost of American jobs. Stop being a corporate mouth piece. American companies have a duty to their country. Americans should be doing those jobs.
What you propose is to destroy American business by denying their the capacity to reduce their cost structures. SOCIALIST.
Explain to me how it is beneficial for workers and American to see firms go bankrupt. Besides, the slow reduction in jobs of certain industries gives America time to retrain for what it does best. America for the most part doesn't make textiles anymore. It designs computer processors. When every country does what it does best, everyone benefits as everyone can buy superior products at low cost. Win-Win in the long run. And you forget that Corporations provide large amounts of money to Americans through dividends not to mention innovation. Pfizer has something like a $9.5 billion R&D budget that it spends primarily in the US.I am for keeping jobs in this country. I am for preventing the middle class from disappearing. I am for laws that keep corporate greedmongers in check.
You do realize no one takes those seriously when they come from you? I see no reason to keep the middle class working in industries America cannot compete in. Hence why I'm on board with Obama's green energy initiatives. If we can start massive alternative energy industries in America, we can export the knowledge and manufactured products from those industries, and those industries will be solidly middle class. That and I hate petro-dictators.We? I take it you're a corp-ro-nazi! No wonder you see no reason to keep the middle class working.
Why do they deserve to be in America? Why does anything? Because it's American? That's a poor reason.Still --- those jobs belong in America. Americans deserve those jobs. The middle class MUST be maintained ... even if some big business asshole doesn't get a six figure bonus.
If you really want these jobs to come back, you'd lobby for a reduction in minimum wage and reductions in taxes to lower cost of living. No call center is going to pay its workers $25,000 a year much less $45,000. Maybe $15,000.
Highly wrong. Sweat shop labor is paid. Slave is not. Sweat shop laborers can quit any time. Slave labor cannot. Sweat shop labor is often paid excessive amounts more then the local minimum wages. Slave labor isn't paid at all. Sweat shop labor jobs are in high demand from locals. Slave labor isn't.Sweatshop labor is the same as SLAVE LABOR. You should be ashamed of yourself for asking that question.
Sweat shop labor > Prostitution.
Show me.No, you changed it, I changed it back.
Personal insults are a sign you have no argument.No. It makes you a pro-business neo con who cares more about profits than his own country. You should be ashamed of yourself.
Actually you unilaterally changed the topic.Again ... WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT PRODUCTS. We're discussing technical support and the IT industry.
I still fail to see a reason why we should mandate welfare for inefficient industries. I guess you're against exporting textile jobs too eh?
LOL. You're funny. At least I'm not promoting welfare.When you can do something besides tounge the anus of greedy corporate criminals we can finish this conversation. Until then ... spare me your neoconist, anti-American bull****.
