  •  Try 1.75 an hour on for size, while you're at it. (3+ / 0-)

    A worker on an assembly line in a maquiladora in say, Reynosa, across the Rio Grande from McAllen in South Texas, will work for a base rate of 1.75 an hour.  She may have to work overtime, and may or may not be paid for it.

    That is about 14.00 gross pay for a really hard day, with the next one coming right up.  Most people in the US make more than that in an hour.  

    That is, for the investors, a savings that goes right into dividends for themselves.

    hope that the idiots who have no constructive and creative solutions but only look to tear down will not win the day.
