Events have recently shown that the top rungs of the American corporate ladder are populated by looters and freebooters who are devoid of any sense of social responsibility. For decades they have been exporting jobs by the hundreds of thousands, destroying the economy of the society that made their riches possible.
Look at Mexico, America. You are looking at your future unless you start to do something about it. Make the effort to support businesses that support American workers. Work for a new social contract in the US.
Unbridled capitalism is a poker game in which, eventually, one guy walks away with all the chips.
