All you have to do is look at how many corporations have closed shop and opened their business in China for cheap low wages. Corporations want cheap wages here in the U.S. Whenever someone is being paid a good reasonable living wage, the people who are being abused by corporations with low wages revolt. Instead of taking their anger on corporations, they become jealous of the people who are being paid reasonable wages because of their unions. Do people honestly prescribe to the fact that businesses want to hire people at a reasonable living wage? They lobby against minimum wages!!! Could anyone raise a family on $7.25 an hour? Is your 10 minutes of hard work without benefits worth $1.20?

Although I feel unions are needed for workers to get a good livable wage or help prevent being taken advantage by their employer, their are some changes within unions that should be changed. For instance, unions will protect lazy workers or workers that are completely incompetent. By doing this it hurts the image of the company, causes lost sales, creates added expenses, and reduces overall productivity. I don't know too many hard workers including union workers who enjoy seeing someone loafing off.


You can thank the Obamites and Totalitarian nanny state types who think that regulation of every aspect of our lives is the answer. Regulation of industry has gone far in raising the cost of production. It may seem to you as if it's just stingy corporations who don't wanna pay for labor. However, in order to stay competitive, they must find ways to keep costs low. In the end many have opted to leave the country. Illegal immigration may seem like a neat way to keep costs down, but it depresses wages across the country. Remember, there are construction, mining, and agriculture jobs in Mexico but the pay is even less.
Now, Obama has promised that the cost of energy is "necessarily going to skyrocket" to use his own words. He promised to bankrupt the coal industry in order to push the liberal green agenda. If you want to really dig for the truth, the Green Agenda comes out of the Totalitarian desire by elites to control all the resources of the planet. think I'm kidding? Do the research. It's in all their literature. Here's a start for research on UN Agenda 21

The removal of bank regulations was one of the reasons the economy is in this mess. Lets just remove all regulations, it's just like having a kid minding a candy store.


So moving manufacturing overseas helps companies become competitive? In the long run, there won't be enough jobs here for people to buy their products! They've chosen lower wages over quality! They've taken risks with manufacturing products overseas with no quality oversight. Children toys are being painted with lead paint, and some products are being produced with known cancer causing chemicals. We were once known as the bread basket of the world, and now we import more pesticide tainted fruits and vegetables. Are you comfortable feeding your family and buying products that may down the road cause them health problems, or actually kill them? People in the U.S. have proven time and time again they are willing to pay more for a quality products rather than poor quality. Just look at the automobile industry for an example. American automobile manufactures were producing poor quality products during the 70's and the 80's. The Japanese automakers were producing reliable and quality automobiles. Japanese cars were more expensive, but the American consumer still purchased them because of the quality and reliability. The U.S. automakers lost huge market shares and whined about foreign automakers, but refused to pay attention to consumer demand for quality. You now have loyal foreign car consumers who will never purchase another American made car in their lifetime. And guess what, they teach their offspring to purchase foreign cars because of their experience. Instead of companies paying their CEO million dollar contracts and giving them added bonuses and perks, maybe they should focus on quality and the value of their workers who are the backbone of their companies success.
