    Your assuming jobs are just gonna spring up.
    The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking.

    Companies tend pay toward marginal productivity. If they can hire you a below your marginal productivity, then why wouldn't they hire you?

    BTW states having a MW is not unconstitutional

    Marginal produvity is higher here than most workers from China. Fact is, we are better suited for different work. So while China has a relative advantage in labor-intensive manufacturing, we are better in information technologies, finance, etc. Surely you've heard of comparative advantage and aren't engaging in the Luddite Fallacy.

    Your listing industries that have no way near enough demand for the amount of people you suggest they can employ.Yes this is the classic arguement it doesent matter about losing the "old jobs" because through education etc are people wont need them.How many people do ya think can work in finance and IT ?

    Look up the Luddite Fallacy before you try to guess what I'm arguing!
