  •  The only way out for workers (0+ / 0-)

    Is to educate themselves away from the rest of the world.  A degree in molecular biology -something which we do well-i still a very valuable thing.

    I realize that this is not a solution to the problem.  I am just pointing out that some are not completely trapped.

      The key word in that is "some". While the current must have degrees being promoted in math, engineering, technology and sciences are probably people's best bets, even degrees in these fields are being devalued for US workers by the expansion of work permits for imported labor. This is intentional and a continuation of a trend. When an employer complains they must import cheap labor because they cannot find suitable domestic labor, what they are really saying is they cannot find suitable domestic labor for what they are willing to pay. Not the same thing.
