just don't think $10 hour jobs are going to save the US. Ask your mom or dad how great it used to be, they always say growing up they had nothing. If the current average person lived like they did back then they would have plenty of money. If I didn't have 2 cell phones, internet,3 cars,buy cds,eat out 5 times a week, go hunting every other weekend, play softball, buy guns, go see movies the week they come out, have the kids in baseball and kick ball and all the other crap I waste money on I would have plenty of money. Mom has been in manufactoring her whole life at 56 years old she brings home around $300 a week working for a defense contractor, imagine if she was on an assembly line building toys. I could go get a warehouse job right now making 10-12 bucks an hour...whoo..hoo, jobs are there, but nobody wants to work for that crappy pay. Please quit watching "why we fight", find another video to worship
I guess Trump is an idiot then? I would expect a business man like himself to love china but when he starts saying we are stupid and need to make a change that should tell ya something. I think he realizes that things must change and sees what its doing to his own country.
They wont be $10 an hour jobs, there will be so many jobs and they will need people to do them therefor they will pay good money for decent people not to mention, the greater opporunities that will come with it. Back then we encouraged immigration because we had so much work to do and not enough people to do it. Supply and demand, this is how it used to work, this country was built on this, it worked before and it will work now.
You left out the fact the kinda money mom used to make before her job was outsourced, last one being Nokia where she made $18 an hour soldering cell phone BY HAND with all her benefits and 401k she had before the plant was shut down and moved to mexico.
How about the christmas bonuses she used to get that bought all of us gifts, and the fact she had a stable job with opporunity to move up which her own father had done and she would have if she had been allowed to keep her job? Both my granddads worked at the same job for 30+ years and retired with a decent pension and made decent money after they had worked up to it. Sounds pretty damn good to me, id love to have that chance!
I know the reason they had it so hard at first was just because they were lazy, not that they were working and not getting anywhere. Dad joined the marines after grandpa told him to get a job, join the corp or get out. The reason mom makes so little now is because she doesnt have a degree, defense contractors make VERY good money, ask you friend that worked at Lockheed. You know about that.
You couldnt live on 10-12 bucks an hour with 3 kids without being on food stamps and every kind of government aid you could get. So yea, you could get a job but if you still cant afford to live on your own what good is it?
