    Yeah, it has absolutely nothing to do with the decades old trend of moving manufacturing jobs overseas, where they can freely pollute and pay their workers slave wages to work in unsafe conditions.

    Ok but what about the part of jobs going overseas. Why not challenge in the context.

    Wow. Brilliant, just absolutely brilliant. Step away from the keyboard, pour yourself some tea and pat yourself on the back for the best posts of the day.

    “A trend brought on by greedy, corrupt unions.”

    You could legitimately argue that some companies move operations because of overreaching/corrupt unions. I wouldn’t doubt that there are some unions that have those issues. That doesn’t account for the factories around my area that moved operations overseas despite not being unionized. It doesn’t explain the several people within the non-unionized company I work for who are currently training an outside vender from India how to do their job before their positions are eliminated in 3 months time. It doesn’t explain the low pay and deplorable conditions that many overseas workers have to put up when American jobs are moved there.

    Employee union greed doesn’t explain the Bangladeshi garment factory fire that killed over 100 employees. Employee union corruption doesn’t explain the conditions, low pay, and long hours endured by sweat shop employees making products for American companies.

    Brought on by greedy, corrupt business people, who by and large vote Republican.

    A decades old trend funded and aided by our own govt!

    A trend brought on by greedy, corrupt unions. But no liberal is EVER going to admit it.
    -
    Why should they admit to such a blatant idiocy? Leaving helped the Unions how? It weakened them while the corporate businesses got stronger. Maybe the Plutocrats should do the acknowledging in this quarter.

    Agreed, humans are flawed. We should not cater to those flaws as Ayn Rand did. She positively raised them to exultant status instead of leaving them as vices.

    “… Bangladeshi garment factory, etc…” All good points. We are in a global economy. Lower costs are not the only consideration when a business makes decisions. Boycotts of products does make an impression, too. Consumers choose what they buy (except in the communist state). And, consumers can be motivated to buy only USA.

    I see you have reacted to being unfairly accused in a general post about “liberals”.

    So now you know how conservatives feel when there is a blanket post saying all conservatives are:

    Waging war on women….ludicrous

    killing grandma ….. shoot we ARE grandma

    and so on.

    PLUS you are spot on in your comment.

    Of course it does. They have to be competative or they will go out of business. It may be an unfortunate, vicious cycle, but it’s reality.

    @churchillwasright

    So….. greedy unions are to blame for non-unionized companies moving operations over seas? I’m not sure how that works.
