    Once our workers could stand in solidarity for better wages and benefits.  Now, if they do so, their jobs are outsourced to China.  

    The only workers who can't be outsourced are public sector employees (although they're trying hard to outsource teachers with privatized schools) which is why goons like Christie and Walker attack them.  They've already made American workers wage serfs, now they are trying to finish the jobs with local, state and federal employees.  The speed in which this is being accomplished is breathtaking.

      Hard for people to earn a decent wage with almost slave labor in China.

      So unclear it was a good idea to let them into the WTO particularly when they don't allow their currency to float or treat their own people like garbage.
