They remind me of the partially well intentioned, but absolutely clueless legislators who initiated the "three strikes" criminal sentencing movement in California decades ago.
Unintended, and unexpected consequences are usually the most severely detrimental ones.

California wasn't the first, but it had so much of the dieversity to escalate the costs.

You don't seem to understand why protectionism is a bad thing, the rest of the world is far more prosperous due to labor intensive industry moving there. The US is actually doing more manufacturing than ever, we are just making higher valued products.
Creating a company that is U.S.-based and taking those jobs overseas is, in my opinion, screwing over America. Keep those jobs here. Keep the money in our economy.

As I've also said, the impact is more than just economical. Look at what Texaco has done in the Amazon. China's pollution is ridiculous because of not on their own manufacturing, but the manufacturing we ask them to do.

We need to take care of our own before we go "civilizing" other nations.

Interesting how certain American companies are vilified for their overseas operations while others are not. Nobody ever complains about GM, GE and Apple.

Q: What is the American-Israeli victim cult?

A: The American-Israeli vicitm cult is avery large class of voters, people conditioned to trade votes privilege. Victim cult people are conditioned to rationalize their privilege as necessary to equalize their status as compared to an oppressor class counterpart. This is the opressor-victim paradigm...

men oppress women
white oppress black
straight oppress pervert
gentile oppress jewish
gringo oppress hispanic
healthy oppress disabled
occidental oppress asian
settler oppress native american

The victim-oppressor bifurcation process, along with the vote-trading-for-privilege process is sometimes referred to as "Diversity" or "social justice" by victim cult mavens.

The universal oppressor of american-israeli victim cult people is the so-called white supremacist. The white supremacist embodies all of the oppressor class attributes:

men
white
straight
gentile
gringo
healthy
occidental
settler

Victim cultism requires a totalitarian national socialist central government with unlimited law making power to enforce the cult privileges.

Similar to communism, which is a dictatorship of the proletarian class, victim cultism is a dictatorship of the victim class. In fact, the mavens who invented communism also invented victim cultism.

Communism demonises the bourgeoisie class, and produced the Gulag and Holodomor horrors. Similarly, victim cultism demonises the healthy-white-straight-gentile -male class, and has produced endless horrors in the mideast, and a police state in the US.

That's assuming a lot. I only named one company because it was a specific example. I believe I have also stated that I think ALL American companies should stay in the United States. Texaco happens to be one that not only takes its business overseas, but also destroys the environment and refuses to help clean it up.

Some companies are politically correct to the left, including not mentioning their off-shoring activities. The reasons may be unions and government ownership (GM), political donations and phony "green initiatives" (GE) or anti-establishment fanboy liberal hipsterism (Apple).

So all politically conservative companies are legit, huh? There aren't any companies that back conservative politicians that don't exploit the cheap land and labor overseas?

Who said that? I'm simply pointing out leftist hypocrisy. It never fails to amuse me when I see unions crying about jobs going overseas while GM now has more plants in China than the US. Mr. Xi doesn't do the UAW shuffle.

In the big picture, everyone's a hypocrite. Big businesses do double damage by taking their production overseas. Not only do they take the jobs away and increase their profit, but they make it difficult for smaller businesses to break into the market legitimately here in this country. I think it's time our country penalizes companies that take their business off American land. Maybe another TEFRA too. Small business owners need a chance to thrive in this country. It used to be doable, but not so much anymore. I've worked for two major corporations in my life, and two small businesses. I found everything about the small business to be better. And better yet, it was based in this country.

Chevron?

Texaco was merged years ago.

If the manufacturing is done in China, it's Chinese GDP. "Theirs" and "ours" doesn't apply.

You claim that you want to enforce US standards on overseas factories owned by US Hq'd corporations, but now you don't want to civilize other countries???

You're an older guy, recall hearing "the starving kids in China", not anymore.
The reason "you people" stay unemployed is because you have criminal records, use drugs, and have kids out of wedlock. Admittedly, drug penalties should be rolled back, but the rest are the fault of personal responsibility.
Not to mention the competition from illegal Mexican labor.
NAFTA helped destroy our US workers...damn Clinton for that! While it is true many Black men have a felony, it shouldn't be expected for them to starve because a bigot won't hire them.

I've done contract work in a lot of companies, and I know for sure many of the whitemen in those places are felons! The prison tats on their necks, forearms, and fingers tell the story.

Drugs! I'll bet a dollar to a donut that if urine test were done randomly in Corporate jobs as they are in blue collar ones, 1/4 of the workforce would be unemployed. And it's your Republican governors and mayors that have allowed Mexicans to slide into this country at boarder states. The business community loves that slave wage labor!

I don't want companies from the US going overseas period. We don't have a hand in civilizing China. And we're only interested in countries that can offer something for us. There are lots of "uncivilized" nations out there that America could care less about. And moving into a country, setting up shop and paying a pittance in wages isn't really helping these people.

China's manufacturing is largely driven by America. Many of the products we consume are from there. We could very easily manufacture some of these items ourselves and create jobs here.

My ex-boyfriend worked for Bill Lager of ECOT. He had been told that many of his employees (Bill's) routinely smoked pot and some were even coke heads. The only reason they got rid of one guy is because his addiction ended up getting him into legal trouble and it was an embarrassment for a company that exists to educate children. Another friend of mine is marrying a lawyer. Her fiance went to Vegas for another friend's bachelor party. All Wall Street guys. They had rented cabanas and on the inside were mounds of cocaine.

Drug use is not a black thing or white thing. It isn't exclusive to the poor and it isn't exclusive to the rich. The only different most of the time is the type of drug that's being abused.
