    Well, is it the greed of the big rich people, or the greed of the American worker we are talking about here?

    Why should anyone pay someone a higher wage, if someone else will do it cheaper?

    Maybe if it was your job you wouldn't feel the same.

    Why should anyone obey the laws of a land that doesn't give a rat's ass about them?

    Why would I feel any different? You can't overprice a job and expect it to remain employed with it forever. If others are going to do the same work at a lower price, you can't keep the employer from going to them simply because you want more money.

    If you want more money, do something that will earn you more money. I don't see why people in another country who would benefit from doing the work you do should suffer just because you say so.
