It's not "Big corporations" or "Mr. Obama" to blame, it's us folks. The American labor force and its unions have simply priced us out of global competition. If you were CEO of a major U.S. corporation, wouldn't you cut your labor costs for larger profit margins?

Sure blame the unions- after all they demand a high wage.Gee. I guess $8-$10 per hour is just to high when they can get Mexican workers to work for $2-$4 per hour.But then look at the cost of living-the living conditions(not to mention the drug war) and the work ethic over their.

Think about it Mark, corporations like any other business are in it for the money if we (Americas Government) would allow for a better business climate here in the states these corporation would not go offshore to set up shop. These corporation are being driven out from high wages to even higher regulation setting and until our politicians realizes this they will continue to leave our shores in droves

Agree.

The good thing it is to our neighbor to the South. We should at least keep
these jobs in this hemisphere.

Left out the fact these big CEO's are getting large bonuses while sacrificing
these jobs also. The big companies give their CEO's extremely large bonuses
even when the company is doing bad. These bonuses are into the millions of
$dollars$.

It keeps the population of Juarez employed with decent work. This
is better than them working for the people in the business who
supply the USA's illegal substance craving. The jobs will put
families more at ease of decent work instead of worrying about
family members joining the illegal substance business to put
food on the table and pay the bills.

What does it tell you about a company when they move jobs to the Murder Capital of the World? I'm sure their American management officials will be thrilled to travel there everyday from El Paso.
