  •  It is vitally necessary to hire overseas (0+ / 0-)

    for the health of the global economy. Although in the short term this looks like a race to the bottom, in the longer term every low-wage country with no labor protections turns within a few decades into a much healthier economy with a much healthier political system, and starts sending even more work to even poorer countries, while the wealthier countries benefit from an ever wider range of ever less expensive products.

    This will continue until there are no poor countries left in Asia and Africa. In spite of appearances, this process is well under way almost everywhere except North Korea and the poorest countries still mired in civil wars such as Yemen, Chad, and Congo. Well, Haiti since the earthquake, Cuba under the embargo...But well over a hundred countries are making good progress.

    What this world needs, and will eventually achieve, is a good labor shortage.

    And in the meantime, it needs the US to go Progressive, and to support its own workers with sane labor laws, sane regulation of business, and in fact sanity in general.

    America—We built that!
