Business is out to make money, they will go do that the most efficient way they can. Paying a worker a dollar a day is slave wages but in a third world country it's better then what they get.
So they left and the leadership let them do it by setting up the business game to help every other country in the world and crush us!
Why do we have them if they harm our nation?????
I live on 75% of what I made 5 years ago because people making 100k a year decided to stick it to the working class people of the US.
Unions are selling out their people also because they support the dems who are 1/2 responsible this tragedy!
If we do not remove the leadership and replace them, we will be a third world country in less then 50 years.
900 billion in outgoing funds to China and other nations due to trade imbalance is depleting the money available in the US.
Thus they must deficit spend to keep the economic balloon afloat while our enemies buy up our businesses and move the production overseas.
They called it free trade, but it is not FAIR trade, business here can not compete against a dollar a day workforce no matter how much automation they have!

does anybody out there remember a teen hang-out in Bassett called the Bengal Den. it was located near the bridge across from the old high school. i really miss a lot of the businesses that were located along main street in Bassett. it's like a ghost town now and it is so very sad.
