Corporations here in the US are already importing engineers and other highly skilled workers.
The last company I worked for, a profitable company with over 400 employees, decided to relocate to Mexico....just for the sake of increasing profits to boost stocks for shareholders. It was the only reason it was done. Everyone at my factory lost their job...although they had the option to MOVE TO MEXICO and still stay with the company which virtually no one did. I actually had to train my replacement who didn't speak a lick of English. I even had a translator with me at all times. They were going to pay him less than 2 dollars an hour...but I had to do it or risk the chance of losing my job and hence unemployment benefits and a 1000 bonus if I stayed till my end date. I had to have a buffer till I could find another job. I'd also like to add that my former workplace was NOT in a union. We never fought for anything there. They treated us well. our plant manager actually cried as he told all 400 of us at the same time that we were losing our jobs...he was losing his also as well.edit on 11-3-2011 by David9176 because: (no reason given)

All worldly governments are corrupt and always put themselves or those they want above all else. Then we need to put in place a council pretty much like a jury.
The only laws we should have to adhere to are common sense, so in other words if you do harm to another person or destroy something of theirs then you have to answer to the council. Everyone would have to sit on this council at some point as we would rotate out of it.
This is the only way to change the seemingly innate nature that all politicians/leaders seem to fall in line with. Greed and corruption would be gone as all living humans are equal and no one would have complete power. This seems to me the intentions of the founders of USA but has been stolen away from us by greedy people.
