21. "Dark Africa" has come for our jobs, eh?

Of course the stagnation of American wages may just have more to do with our own anti-labor, right-to-work, laws and tax cuts for the rich and increases for the rest of us.

My guess is that if we had progressive taxes, strong unions and an effective safety net we would happy that people in "Dark Africa" were a little better off. We would not be insinuating that their modest success had come at our expense.
