-- Some states have lost a lot of manufacturing jobs to Mexico, particularly Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee. The Economic Policy Institute, a research group supported by unions, released a report in 2011 saying U.S. workers have seen nearly 700,000 jobs go to Mexican competitors.

assessment when she says that it's better to lose jobs to Mexico than China because Mexico is closer. What? This dope is just a corporate shill trying to justify the corporate robbery of the American people.
