who have been repeating for years that our wages and living standards must come down; while these ceos and corporations have seen unprecedented profits.
why does our standard of living have to go down? those free trade treaties should be fair trade treaties and allow citizens from all countries to have a decent living standard. instead, the already wealthy and getting wealthier, just want the whole world as their personal playground with no regulations and no labor laws. and to provide it, any greedy dictator will do.
