30. Free trade

 

Enables them to compare a Mexican, Chinese, Indian, Canadian, or American worker as if they were all a commodity.

As a commodity on the world market american workers suck. The only way to stop the commodification of the american worker is to stop "free trade". Why would any "Boss/CEO/Owner" invest in a US plant and american workers when doing it overseas, with no regulation, a cheap disposable workforce, including shipping is much more profitable. With no taxes or tariffs to level the playing field the american worker will always cost more for less.
