I travel to China.
Chinese people work circles around lazy entitled Americans out of necessity.

If my employer could move operations overseas, he would probably do so in a heartbeat because of regulations, Global Warming costs, taxes etc,etc. Unfortunately for him, we can't do that because we are a delivery company.
Some good news about China though. Some of those jobs are coming back home. It seems as the wages of the Chinese get larger and ours getting smaller, it's starting to make more sense to manufacture here at home where our customers are instead of having things made over there and hauling them back over here. It's also my experience that Chinese goods are cheap, unreliable and defective. We had several of our customers get stuff from China and in a matter of time, they quit using Chinese companies because it wasn't worth sending the garbage back and forth until it was produced correctly.
American jobs coming back home:
