Real simple solution.
Put tariffs on EVERYTHING imported to make them priced they way they should be and stop taking advantage of cheap labor.
This gives the US companies the incentive to move back and provide jobs for our people. If the companies all complain about the high tariffs, cut them
off cold turkey and see how well they survive with no base to sell to. Then if they fail from their own unchanging and stupidity, another company will
pop up to provide the service the way we need it handled.
Then once a majority of the companies are manufacturing back in the US, and everyone has decent jobs and a little extra money, just slightly increase
the prices so you have a little bit larger profit margin, and everyone wins.
The Government wins because we now have a bigger, better taxation base both from the companies and the working citizens.
The Companies win, because now folks can actually afford their useless products and they have a happier work base
The Citizen wins, because now they have a decent job and money to buy foolish things with.
Do you know how crazy it sounds to hear that our government shipped our jobs out of country. They cut their ownselves by doing so. The tax base
reduced from fewer workers and fewer companies here paying any taxes. Make it to where its PROFITABLE to have the company here and alot of this will
go away. It may mean higher prices initially to get readjusted, but more people will have jobs and can afford it after a short time. Sheesh, its not
rocket science people, and we should be DEMANDING this solution and holding anyone inhibiting said outcome accountable. They are traitors to our
country, themselves, and our all of our great citizens. Screw the folks in China or Mexico or Japan if it means taking care of own. we cant help them
if we cant help ourselves.
While I agree that we need to look at tariffs...
Unfortunately, it's not quite as simple as you state - it may make the Chinese, Indians, et. al. mad at us and no longer buy our goods.
I think a better use of energy would be to address why jobs are leaving the USA - and address those. For example, our schools suck, healthcare is
expensive, poor work ethic, highest corporate tax rate in the world, and other red tape. Tariffs may be only one small piece of the puzzle.
