When you look at the big picture it is amazing that someone can run a plant in China, ship stuff here from China and still do it cheaper than if they manufactured it here.
It not just China either, Mexico is a huge problem as well.
I agree, our system is in need of a serious makeover. What was once was a helping hand has since turned into a life style. I feel the biggest problem is that it is a trending issue that is going to bankrupt our country, however, I digress.
I will say that I know a lot of people that are working for $10 an hour and happy to have the job.......
