|Subject: ||RE: Welcome to Detroit. This will blow your mind.|
I'm from Detroit. What happened there is what happens anywhere you allow large corporations free rein.
No. In fact it is the opposite. I am not trying to be a jerk, but it is pretty obvious that when you have industry that forces corporations to pay union employees an average of $130k a year plus benefits and pension, it isn't going to be long before they go belly up.
How is that sustainable?
Why do these union employees think that driving a screw in one joint 8,000 times a day deserves high pay and benefits? It doesn't. I am not being mean, I am just being honest.
We have an issue with this problem in our country. We are going to end up like France if we don't change.
We need to reinvigorate our desire to produce things in America. If we have to pay unskilled laborers $130k plus benefits and pension, we will continue to outsource.
I am not a Republican. I am a realist who aligns more with the left than the right. This all seems pretty clear to me, though.
Corporations should NOT be given free reign to do whatever they want, but you cannot force them to pay people more than they're worth. That is a the reason our manufacturing industry is dead.
You're right about Detroit but, based on your post, the question is, how in the world do you align yourself more with the left than the right? What you've just described is the very essence of the right's disagreement with the left, and you clearly agree with the right on this bedrock principle. There is a cognitive dissonance there.
