America is in bad Shape today Because the Education System has Failed Us . High Skilled Tech Jobs need Workers Trained in the Sciences to Fill them.

Why not fire those four people who don't work and hire some that do? Those two guys are probably fed up and guess who they are blaming? Management!!
I guess everyone in china are great workers with positive attitudes? Thats why their lives and work conditions are so shiny and golden right? Or is it that they are only offered half of what the job is worth because greedy american managers take their jobs over to third world countries and feel like they can pay half the wages?
Perhaps the problem is that anericans feel sold out by multinational businesses who would rather bolster another countries economy and # on americans. Or managers who hire 6 people and allow 4 of them to stand around?
What a crock. The foul practices of multi-national corps is the problem. Not the work force. People have to work. When these corps took labor overseas, jobs disapeared!!
AND, you would rather bring over visa workers than find qualified help in your own nation? WTF are you on? It's people like you making decisions like this that have drug this nation down. Not the work force.

Would you argue that this poor work ethic that seems to be trending in American born workers is a reflection of Americans as a whole? Pure Laziness? Perhaps a since of entitlement? A mentality that "Work should be fun", or "Work is not the top priority, I am." Kind of thing going on?
If not, what do you attribute this pattern to?

Troll thread or not, he's right about one thing, globalism won't stop and it will only get worse for non-skilled workers. The only thing Trump or any other leader can do, is try and fix the education system for the 21st century.

It takes a lot to work and gain skills. There's also more family contribution towards learning in other countries. I remember a couple years ago here a story was posted which showed a Chinese family, their son had just become a doctor and it was mentioned that the parents sat down and did homework with their son every single night until the day he graduated. The comments ridiculed the family for coddling the child, but that's precisely what lets people learn.
In the US we have less involvement and basically tell children to learn it on their own.
Another difference I've found is that other nations tend to train people more narrowly, while the US isn't nearly as broad as I think we should be, we teach much more broad knowledge and accordingly when writing job requirements we require that broad knowledge base when overseas jobs may not have those requirements.
