No it wouldn't. It would drive industry even further away from the states.
Businesses, like people, do not react well to forceful ultimatums. They get your message that you do not like them, and they move on. They do not come back for even more browbeating and control Mr. Buckwheat.
They wouldn't go very far if their product was banned from the U.S. Of course, I know the United States government doesn't have the balls to stand up to big business, so no need to point it out. You can take up for the outsourcers as much as you like. It still comes down to cheap labor, as I pointed out.$45 dollars a month salary is a compelling reason to bail, and turn around and ship the product back into the U.S. for billions in profit. That doesn't bother you?

Really?
So what if a company can find good workers at a price they both agree upon? That is what they are supposed to do.
$45 to a Vietnamese worker is a good wage in their economy then apparently.
The unions priced themselves out of the market and their employers could no ;onger compete on the world markets.
If an American company does not pay that $45, someone else from some other place will.
When a product can be made overseas, and then transportation costs are added, and the product is still competitive on the shelves in the US, it is not the fault of the company. It is another cause that makes American labor so over priced on the world markets. The labor force themselves, and their own greed.
In my town a one bedroom dump is $500 a month plus like $200 for utilities. And other basic barely get by monthly cost would be another $500. So $1200 a month is needed for one person to just get by in a average size Midwestern town. HOW DO WE COMPETE WITH SLAVE LABOR WAGES IN CHINA MEXICO AND OTHER THIRD WORLD HOLES????

I mean in the USA for a company to be here and make profits like they do with slave wages in china they would have to be TAX FREE AND FOLLOW NO EPA REGS AT ALL AND NOT MAKE FACTORY SAFE TO WORK IN AND PAY WORKERS HALF WHAT THEY GET PAID NOW...

TELL ME HOW DOES THAT WORK....Without import tariffs we can NEVER compete.
Unless landlords cut rent by 95% and food and other cost get cut by 95%...

Because while fools like you are out flapping your gums about how unfair life is, and it's all someone else's fault, the Mexicans are filling those job spots you idiots turn down, and then they send the money to their own starving families in Mexico.
Now you know.
Mexicans live like animals and have 40 people in 3 bed apartment also.

Point is this if we just cut off welfare and foodstamps and all aid it will turn the USA into a war zone crime with go up 10000% and we will spend twice as much money on more cops and new prisons and home owners and renters insurance will go up by ten fold and rape and murder and robbery will sky rocket....YOU WANT TO LIVE IN A NATION LIKE THAT????????

So you think 40-60 million people homeless starving and turning to war and crime is good for the USA??
And why does a Mexican living in mexico care?
No empire lasts forever. The burden of the Afrikans on the US is enormous. They will also be the first to feel the pain when an economical collapse strikes. Im not talking about some strategic Govt bailout program or manipulation of the stock market or oil prices either. Im talking a catastrophic financial depression that makes the Great Depression look like a cake walk. You see when the Depression hit in the 20s the Afrikans were working to better themselves. Nowadays the small percentage that do are vastly outnumbered by the black bums. That's a fact. Nothing racist at all. This time around the luxury of welfare, food stamps, grants, entitlements, affirmative action and other giveaways have created a monster. A big BLACK monster that has no job skills or experience in the workplace. And much less that hungry desire to better themselves that their ancestors had at the turn of the 20th century. Its gone and so will the new Afrikan be gone also. Its a no brainer. Of course civil unrest will follow with complete chaos starting in the cities. I hope to live long enough to see it. That will be a time of reckoning. Oh happy days! God Bless the 2nd Amendment!
Ill ask a few mexicans that live in Mexico if they care and get back to you. Im as American as the Revolutionary War and have served my time of Patriotic duty therefore I feel completely qualified to voice my opinion from whatever part of the globe I hang my hat. Freedom and Liberty are not to be taken lightly. Neither are the men and women that provide the service for you to enjoy them.

I live by the Patton philosophy. If I must lose 10,000 men in battle to gain an objective I want to do it in the shortest time possible and not drag it out. Dragging it out hurts moral and the ability to carry on. The same goes for your silly example of cutting the freebies for our resident POS that are occupying the lands that my ancestors fought for, won and built. I want to get the problem behind us. Bring on the threat of 10,000% crime increase and lets eliminate that threat once and for all. I refuse to be held hostage by a bunch of Goddamn welfare bums and given the opportunity Id buckle up in a New York second and lead my platoon into the meat grinder knowing that we would not simply survive but triumph decisively to take back the America that is ours!

When ANY situation becomes an added burden of expense on a business, the business is forced to make changes in order to maintain their bottom lines.

Our free markets have been under attack from the progressives for quite some time now. They must collapse the dolalr and create chaos in this country before the people will be willing to accept even more "hope and change" and put the final nails in the coffin of our constitution. That Mr. Buckwheat is their end game, and you had better wake up and believe it.

Do you know why Rome fell???? There is 4 main reasons.

1. There military was massive and spread out all over the world.
2. They imported most of what they needed to survive.
3. There was rich and poor and not much inbetween.
4. The government made laws that only benefited the very rich.

That is historical fact so don't bother arguing...

My riches are not in dollars or gold or silver you twit. I consider myself rich because I have a warm place to sleep, food to eat, people who have my back, and a warm fire tonight as it's cold and raining tonight. In my book, a warm fire is better than anything.
You go ahead and horde your riches. I'll enjoy mine Mr Whiner.
