Bill Clinton?
Bill Clinton was involved in passing NAFTA, which removed tarriffs for trade between the US, Mexico, and Canada. He isn't responsible at all for China taking American jobs.
American excess is responsible. We demand too much pay for the uneducated people who work in the factories.
We are arguing right now in Illinois over the minimum wage. Illinois is trying to pass a bill that raises the minimum wage to 10 dollars an hour. That's over 20,000 a year.
In Beijing, the Minimum wage is 2400 dollars a year. No manufacturer can compete with that.
Tarriffs help.
A tarriff is a fee that is payed when importing an item made in a foreign country. Years ago, the tarriff on imports was high enough that it didn't pay to move the factory overseas. Now, with minimum wage as high as it is, it's far more profitable to manufacture in China. We've done this to ourselves. Move the minimum wage back down to 4 dollar an hours, and the jobs come back.

Uneducated people in the factories????If it wasnt for those loyal and patriotic folks in the 1940s we'd all be speaking Japanese or saluting Hitler now.I guess we can depend on China to supply us with new weaponry to defend our sorry,pathetic azzes.Best thing could happen to us is the dock workers on the coast to go on strike permanantly.

I'm not insulting factory workers. My point is that factory workers are laborers, and are usually not college graduates. Yet, the unions in America have driven the price of labor to as much or more than what other countries pay their surgeons. And even non-unionized workers are paid more than in other countries. The government pushes for higher and higher minimum wage so that they can get more tax revenue from employers. In the process, they have pushed companies out of the country and completely eliminated any chance of America being manufacturing powerhouse again.
