Ok, so what do you recommend we do about it? The regulations aren't helping, the unions sure as hell aren't helping! I'm all for getting jobs back over here and having more working tax payers and maybe even a lower tax rate. But why should anyone buy american when it can't compete? Do you expect people to pay alot more just because of patriotizm? And even if they would, how could they with so many out of work and the government and unions trying to do all
the wrong things to make sure business can't and won't stick around?

I suggest we continue the slow, economic recovery we are on now....retail sales were up again, this month....re-elect the President and try to drastically limit, what chinese goods we do buy, trying as always to buy american or even euro, if possible....

How about allowing people to shop across state lines for healthcare plans?

It is typical for there to be some economic pickup these months. They are called seasonal jobs. It's not a good indicator of economic recovery and Obama has nothing to do with that.

IF Obama is re-elected, thousands of companies, YES thousands will cut hours to under 30 per week per employee, to avoid the diaster of obamacare !There is a solution, DON'T re-elect Obama, as then Obamacare will be repealed or defunded and healthcare can be dealt with more sensably. All you Obama voters, don't say you weren't warned !

That's not blackmail, that is reality. Businesses will not stick around as they are further taxed and regulated. Once the cost of business is too high, whats the point? Businesses and business owners are in business with the purpose of making money, not necsessarily to provide us with jobs, and definately not to provide us with healthcare. The fact that they have a healthy business with demand is what merits the employment. So, Obama and business regulation equals unhealthy businesses, unhealthy business equals unemployment, unemployment equals less demand, less demand equals more unemployment.

I can't stand all the tricks, CVS and Winn Dixie use, like reward bucks and having to have a card....why all the bullsh*t? If you are already shopping there, isn't that enough? Publix is probably the biggest success, in the south, and they don't ever do that....

I like Publix too, partly because they still have the decency to observe a bunch of holidays that other stores do not, some of them patriotic. It's not always bottom line or bottom dollar with them. And they don't have self check out! You should never use those, no one should!

A new list just came out today with maybe 40 more companies that are starting to cut most employees to under 30 hours, so as not have to provide health insurance as well as less overall hiring, to save up what would be profit to pay the new penalties. Any business owner with 50 to 100 employees would be foolish not to follow this trend. I feel sorry for the hourly worker who believes Obamacare is a good thing...

OMGosh! where ever shall we buy our Chinese goods if they aren't enough employees to ring up our sales! Oh that's right they have those self check out "thingies" so they don't have to pay real breathing cashiers. Poor working people annoy me anyway. They look so...unhealthy.

Take the company Sensata for instance they makes their employees work 8-12 hours a day 7 days a week and pay them just .99 -$1.35 an hour. This is how money is made people! Unfortunately regulations,laws that requires companies have to pay people the minumum wage and benefits if they are full time is killing this country.

Why just this weeks another lovely Sensata Bain Capitol owned company in Illinois had the opportunity to train Chinese workers to take 107 expensive jobs off the hands of US workers so we, the consumer can pay even less, while we the investors earn even more. It was so sweet of them to take down the US flag and put up the Chinese flag for the Chinese.

I mean really, everyone will soon switch to creating jobs the *Romney-Bain-Way as was revealed in the February 2011 Sensata (Bain) SEC Filing went on to say: Attractive cost structure with scale advantage and low-cost footprint. We believe that our global scale and cost-focused approach have provided us with an attractive cost position within our industry. We currently manufacture approximately 1.1 billion devices per year, with approximately 90% of our production in low-cost countries including China, Mexico, Malaysia and the Dominican Republic.
...We have achieved our current cost position through a CONTINUOUS process of migration to low-cost manufacturing locations, transformation of our supply chain to low-cost sourcing, product design improvements and ongoing productivity-enhancing initiatives.~February 2011 SEC Filing page 80

Instead of loosing US jobs to other countries why can't we lower the US wages to say .75 cents an hour or hire more illegals? You wouldn't believe how much harder my housekeeper works when I cut her wages. Companies would run back to the US to create jobs and I could find all sorts of bargains at my high end stores again. Yes Romney will bring BIG CHANGES. Things are looking up.
Well they are for some of us. Not for these people but they weren't going to vote for Romney anyway so why should he care?
