IT COST SOO MUCH TO PUT AN AMERICAN TO WORK...TO PUT AN AMERICAN TO GET PAID: $40,000 OR $50,000 A YEAR A COMPANY IS GOING TO THINK, IF I GO ABROAD FOR: $50,000 A YEAR I CAN HIRE 2 PEOPLE GETTING PAID: $1,000 A MONTH WHICH IS: $24,000 A YEAR, SO DOUBLE THE WORK, WHICH STRENGHTENS MY COMPANY AND I GET TO KEEP: $26,000 WHICH I CAN USE TO GET RICHER OR EXPAND THE COMPANY, MAKE IT STRONGER, PLUS THE TAX BREAKS AND THE FREE BLONDES THEY GET ABROAD AS APPLAUSE...NOBODY HAS THOUGHT OF DOING THAT...
NOBODY HAS THOUGHT...THE: $50,000 OR $40,000 A YEAR THAT I COULD USE TO HIRE AN AMERICAN, I AM GOING TO HIRE: 2 FOREIGN PEOPLE GETTING PAID: $1,000 A MONTH WHICH WILL BE: $24,000 a year SO DOUBLE THE WORK, WHICH STRENGHTENS MY COMPANY, AND WITH THE: $15,000 A YEAR OR $26,000 A YEAR I AM GOING TO HIRE AN AMERICAN AT MINIMUM WAGE...SO FOR THE PRICE OF 1 YOU GET 3....PLUS IT HELPS THE USA....

You got that right pumpi.
There are countries where you can get 10 people for $50,000.00 year.
Make it overseas and sell it to stupid americans.

The time has come for our unions to travel overseas and organized the workers in Taiwan, China, North Korea, Russia, Lybia, Egypt, Iran, and Iraq. Let them bring to those countries the Uptopia they have brought to America. This message is especially for SEIU.

To help solve the problem of import and export of products between countries is that imports and exports should be limited to products that a country can not manufacture enough of or have as a natural resource for itself.

I don't agree that higher wages are hurting the jobs here. Hiring overseas is not a panacea - it includes more training, lower quality, longer backlog, transportation costs, etc.

The problem is all the pensions, taxes, and benefits required of companies doing business in America. The huge pension burdens have largely come about because of the runaway unions with power gained from political cronyism. Companies (and local governments) are paying enormous pensions for people who are no longer working for them. And many of those pensions have horrendous benefit calculations, which is why New Jersey (for example) ends up paying toll collectors 6-figure pensions for as long as they live.

Who do you think pays for all this? We all do, through higher taxes and fewer employment opportunities.

Everywhere unions are removed from the picture, the situation improves for everyone -- the worker and the company. And that, in turn, improves the entire country, by improving revenues to the government and by growing the economy.

We should not be demonizing companies. They certainly should be punished for doing illegal things, such as hiring illegal aliens, but the main problem is the plague of the powerful unions and their ties directly to politicians.

Unions are trouble and expensive, and there should be no govt employee unions.
