After I read & liked that article, i figure some clarity is needed.
"Corporate Greed" & off shoring, just about nailed it. (Mostly)
Add in the big tax breaks for corporations and then these tariffs,
I feel they are really going after the Working Middle Class and
Working Poor to open the separation between Rich / Poor to a new level.
My Example of Corporate Greed is "Carrier", of the 1,100 jobs Bragged about being saved. (which was Actually only about 750)
The jobs for "joe, steve, herbert" were saved and the Govt' gave them big $$$ for doing that.
But in reality, albert, bob & denisse lost their jobs due to the
"Continued Corporate" decision to Shift Labor to Mexico from other plants instead of what was being "headlined" as saved.
Then they took that "Govt Cheese" and Automated other areas costing Additional Working Americans their jobs too.....
(If i recall correctly, it was actually More than the original "touted" 1,100 saved)
Someone actually argued to me that "We would Keep jobs for Maintaining those closed Plants"....
meaning that the Skilled Worker earning $50 - $75k annual pay for those jobs would actually be offset by maintenance workers earning $12- $15 per hr.
(I thought to myself whaaat?)
It's really to bad these tariffs will be shouldered by the U.S. Consumer and
Not Corporate America.
Speaking of Retaliatory Tariffs, How many Farmers / Ranchers & Workers are being Hurt by this part of the equation?
While We are Guaranteed Nothing & live in a "Right to Work" Nation I feel
the the last Paragraph (last 3 sentences) doesn't really reflect my Liking
of the overall article and it felt kinda "socialistic" to me.
Me thinks that we All need to Wake Up and pay closer attention
because I really think we are on the edge of "Screwed".
as far as the OP -
Short term pain & long term gain (Maybe)
