8. I don't believe it hurt Mexico more than the US, after all

where is the biggest selling "American" car the Ford Fusion made, Mexico, Chevy Silverado the second best selling vehicle in the US is also made there now. It has almost totally de-industrialized the US. I started working in a steel company back in 1970 when we had 19000 employees, today only one plant with less than 200 exists. Millions of tons of steel was made in the upper Ohio Valley for over two hundred years, today not one pound is produced here.
A few months ago they shut down the aluminum plant here that operated for over 50 years. It all started in the 70s when manufacturers went to the "right to work for less" south. When wages got to high there they found Mexico then China. If those bastards found cheap labor on Mars they would move there.
