With right to work advancing in states which state will be the first to have lower wages than China?

If we don't fight back soon, this will spread with the citizens united money. The Kochs probably have their eyes on Illinois next as the press has demonized the democratic governor. I see in the next 5 years the elimination of minimum wage laws if the GOP get back in power in 2014. Then we will be slums while we export our middle class lifestyle to China. These Koch roaches are not going to stop we have to smash the koch roaches sooner rather than later.

2. Virginia is a"right to work" state, I have seen my wages as a white collar professional

basically go stagnant for the last 8 years. And now that I have been laid off my future salary is plummeting with potential emplyers offering me jobs at a 20k decrease in salary.

Of course they (like my last three employers) will expect me to work 60 hour weeks for a 40 hour paycheck

4. Chinese wages are on the rise, fuel cost will keep going up, and other emerging economies

spring up the scale quicker and quicker so they may be looking at localizing production but that means we have to whittle down a lot more.

So, the race to the bottom is on until they can pull it out. They will do that by wrecking education, killing the safety nets, and when all that is done they'll pull the minimum wage.
