    Thats what Bill Gates pays India's citizens to do what Americans have done for years at better pay. America has to change the Labor laws of this country. Make it against the law to hire immigrants over true American citizens. Hell we are purchasing the products these companies are making.
    Maybe we Americans should boycott these companies products.

    $10 per year?

    The early pioneers in KY lived on about that amount for quite a while.

    But if it were my job earned money- sure $10k I can do it.
    If it were Obama tit money, I couldn't live with myself.

    My displeasure is not with the folks in India, they seem strange to me sometime but I suppose 10k is good money over there.

    Also we can not stop all foreign trade. Hell, our policy for containment of Communism was partially based on redistributing our wealth via the Marshall Plan.

    Still even though I always buy used I buy domestically produced cars from domestic companies. So far it has served me well, through the 90's American cars were better. We will see about the 2000's but Toyota seems to be going backwards and forgot how to make frames oddly enough.

    Back to the point, buy American when we can? Much Ashley furniture is fairly.domestically produced. Even domestic memory foam is getting competitiveish with the tubes.
