I the 80's GM handed out stickers saying.Please Buy The Cars Your Neighbor Helped To Build.

..... All prices include wages and other costs. If wages are high then prices have to be high. Customers will buy whatever is cheaper, if quality is nearly the same. Obviously in other places wages are lower and therefore prices of their products imported to here are lower because of free trade and globalization. So it's no use producing more here if not enough people buy made-here products. BOO-HOO!

Hey Quitter,Your job is next,so keep buying cheap goods made offshore and see how your wages are going to be chopped in half and even move south were wages are you are so ignorant..cant wait to see your face when your own boss tells you that you cost him to much money here with your high wage, so if you don't take a fifty per cent wage cut they are moving south....
