I hear you and agree! But as long as the U.S. consumer continues to buy cheap merchandise (usually from Wal-Mart) made in a country where the labor rate is $1 a day, we will continue to lose manufacturing jobs!Another US business bites the dust! Our economy is supposed to be doing so wonderful, according to Bush and Fox news, yet people's jobs continue to leave this country. I hope this is an issue that becomes very important to in-coming democrats and receives the action it deserves. The US population can't all work for Wallmart or McDonalds!!
If we impose a tarriff, those same consumer won't be able to buy anything, and....our products that ARE selling overseas will stop selling because they'll start charging us a tarriff!!!
If we want to stop this trend, we gotta make something that everyone wants, but that they can't make!(P.S. unionizing and demanding more money from a company that's already about to go out of business won't solve it either.)
