CODY4U saidJobs have been lost to outsourcing and illegal immigration. You can't expect people to be cool with something that's limiting opportunities for them as actual citizens. This is obviously an issue that had gone unaddressed long before Trump even announced he was running. Media pins way too much on Trump when he's far from the root of the issues. He's giving a voice to people who feel overlooked. The mistake the Anti-Trump crowds made was ignoring the public. He simply stepped up and spoke to them. Now they're speaking through their votes. I won't be voting for Trump, but I get some of the frustration and why people are choosing him.
"Jobs have been lost to outsourcing and illegal immigration", yes but this is mainly the "fault game" played by Corporate America and Government. (on the same partisan party lines, rep v dem. The game, tit for tat. Corporate America is greedy, they play there own game of stagnate wage caps, that is why american 'workers' don't get ahead in life (you are a slave to debt that you can never get out of, wages are kept subdued for this purpose). If corporate america had its full control over government, which is really what is going on here, a fight for control between government, religion and corporate America, they would be able to "reset the wage bar" every time without consequence, which only helps themselves to larger profit margins. There is an old saying in business, "the fox guarding the hen house". The US is not China, not yet anyway
I understand 'regulations' because that is my own line of work but you cant just throw the baby out with the bath water. Part of regulation is check and balance to make sure laws, rules and regulations are followed in business. Without someone unbiased 'guarding the hen house' what do you have? Did we not learn anything in school or college about cheating your way thru life? This is my viewpoint about the republicans and most in corporate America.
Part of the Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln, addresses the fact government is for the people, by the people. Not for religion, by religion, not corporations, by corporations (although Hobby Lobby case suggests corporations are now "people" which still sounds silly). This is why I point fingers at big US business, they think they are "people" who should run the united states government and Donald Trump falls into this, scary, category. In my youth (70's-80's), an average CEO's pay was $150,000 yearly, around the same amount as a doctor or lawyer. Todays CEO's yearly pay is at min, $1 Million, plus unlimited company stock options. What is that, 10,000%?
Meanwhile the average wage of workers has remained flat. Companies today want to pay me what I was making 20 years ago. Instead of paying me more, deservedly, they pick a 'younger' person or foreign person that will work for their low set wage cap. This is why $15 hr min wage is such a big deal now. Its governments way of balancing the pay scale that has been oppressed for so long, by the greedy "job creators" who over decades have lined their own pockets by minimizing pay for labor growth
I don't want CEO Trump, or any war pig republican running our 'free country' ever again
