As sad as it was to have the big factories and steel mills of the Industrial Revolution, using the desperate and the disenfranchised as practical slave labor, so the Union bosses taking the dues of the working man while driving industries overseas are equally horrid. The thing that astounds me is the fact that our government subsidizes the big businesses that leave our Country with tax breaks for business expenses to move, and does not tariff the imports in cars and other goods from abroad.This has to stop now. Likewise NAFTA has caused more social and economic issues than it has helped in Mexico. Do your countrymen a favor, refuse to put a price on principal , buy American.

Sorry, but begging for a factory job is pointless, unrealistic, absurd, silly and dumb. Better off protesting for health care and food stamps.

Wouldn't rather work for $10.00 hour with self pride to feed your family then be on food stamps?

You question is unrealistic. All $10.00 an hour factory jobs are gone and NEVER coming back. So yea, I would rather have health care and food stamps. But if you don't then enjoy suffering while you wait.

Listen, I was putting this out there so people would jump on it. You must have a job and not be suffering! Again wouldn't you work for $10.00 an hour? And BTW some factories are reconsidering coming back. I was JUST letting them know that I would work UNION FREE, the true reason they left!

Who is paying your healthcare and food stamps...just curious?

Technically, China has been paying. This is because the super rich stopped paying taxes in 1981.

If a lot of people would work for $10/hour union free jobs would indeed come back.
