Good luck competing with China where they chain the kids to a fence outside while the parents work.
There is no way North America will be able to build their own shit again unless Liberty movement wins and duty gets jacked the fuck up. No more of this free trade BS. Infact if you bought gold from when the free trade agreements were signed to now I bet you'd of made a tidy sum.

Alright guys, these guys are bluffing their ass off. Most workers in Foxconn gets paid around 1500-1700RMB nowadays. That's actually a decent wage in china. Don't forget all these workers get complementary accommodation and food. The money/pay they get will likely be saved up. This is common in many companies in China. I'm sick and tired of the Western media comparing our wages against theirs. The fact that they convert their wages to USD or whatever and say they are getting paid so little for what they do. You can't compare it. The Chinese society and the western society runs off two different standards of living. Without these companies the people would not have a proper job.

I think they were cereal. When you're a man and you have mouths to feed but you can't seem to make enough and the odds are stacked against you, I think suicide would be one of the options
