U.S. Bridges, Roads Being Built by Chinese Firms

California has MASSIVE Unemployment and here we are sending $! Billion worth of jobs over to China

Most disqusting thing I have seen in a very long time. Who ever that Jack Ass is lying through his teeth saying "American Companies can't get the welders they need" should be fired immediately.

1. We need an initiative in California to ban offshoring of State work

 

Why has no one else suggested this? They did it in Ohio.

2. Good idea, Zalatrix.

I don't know how feasible it is, but I'd like to find out.

3. Someone needs to bankroll an initiative for this law.

 

Politicians cannot override an initiative in California.

Plus once the signature collection starts, the pro-offshoring lobby has to confront us face to face. A propaganda campaign on TV will only piss people off. Then they have to attack us in the general election. LOL. That's called kung fu fighting in quicksand. The more the pro-offshoring lobby fights the worse off they are.

A vast majority of Americans oppose offshoring, according to every possible poll. Once we get it rolling in California it will be the shot heard round the world.

I wonder why the unions won't take that first step...

4. I'd wager this could be tracked back to a handful of local people benefitting from the contracts

Would be interesting to know who they are.

5. Ahhhh!

This is disgusting. These politicians are talking job creation and there outsourcing our infastructure to China! I friend that is an out of work welder. We need to elect candidates that do not accept corporate donations.
