    Few people realize that for the past fifty years the policy of the United States government has been to get rid of jobs.

    From the link:

    For fifty years, Congress has been piling on requirement after requirement for production: Social Security, health care, minimum wage, labor rights, labor safety, plant safety, plant closing notices, parental leave, clean air, clean water. A company can avoid all of these costs by offshoring to China. And if a company’s competition offshores to China, it will have to follow. Continuing to work its own employees with the cost of the U. S. standard of living will cause the company to go bankrupt. It’s not just jobs. Investment, research, technology, development, production, the economy and corporate leadership are all outsourced.
