    Are these the ones that moved their factories and production to take advantage on the low wages, who then took advantage of the trade deals to ship the products formerly made by US workers back to the markets in America? You know, people like President Trumpybear?

    I'm pretty sure Obama was smoking dope at the time.

    History
    President Ronald Reagan proposed a North American common market in his 1980 presidential campaign. Europe's common market, dubbed the European Economic Community, had already been initiated with the Treaty of Rome.

    In 1984, Congress passed the Trade and Tariff Act, which itself built upon and amended a prior Trade Act of 1974. The 1984 gave enhanced "fast-track" authority to negotiate bilateral free trade agreements, streamlining negotiations.

    In 1985, Canadian Prime Minister Mulroney agreed to begin discussions for the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement. Negotiations began in 1986 and it was signed 1988. It went into effect on January 1, 1989, and remained in force until NAFTA replaced it.

    Your a lying bag of shit that doesn't have a clue. Employers will pay as little as they can possibly get away with. They will take advantage of employees as much as they can possibly can.

    I didn't stay in any one place long, I moved back to the U.S. and moved to several different states - each time the employer knew that I was in a disadvantaged position and had to accept whatever they offered. Eventually I job hopped to higher paying jobs, but that took years.

    Surprisingly employers don't hire job hoppers, an employee has to stick it out for a year or so before job hopping.

    Your concept of the employment market is totally false - there's not always a competitor next store looking to hire - especially in the manufacturing sector where employers are desperate to hold down wages and salaries.

    I know that you like to project myths that justify the 'market value' basis for wages and salaries, but those are just myths.

    Of course they pay as little as possible, moron. They're in business to make money, not to make you rich.

    And whose fault is that? Why would an employer pay you any more than they had to, knowing you were just gonna quit after a few months? Again, they're in business to make money, not waste it.

    Why is that surprising?

    If people are willing to work for less money than you are, why should the employer hire you over them? If you can't live on what the market in your chosen industry dictates, maybe you chose the wrong industry.

    No, I just live in the real world.
