16. The idea was
ship those low paying manufacturing jobs overseas, and the Americans will step up to the next level. So all we heard for a while was "technology technology technology". But then they started shipping those engineering (and architecture, accounting, etc.) jobs overseas as well, and we stood by and watched a good portion of our high paying jobs leave too. I remember when Kerry was campaigning and his answer to this was -yes, the American people will have to adapt - he then went on to talk about the medical field. Not everyone can 86 their engineering degrees and go back to school for medicine... So, now we're left with a bunch of low paying service jobs and then, big surprise, people are having a hard time paying their mortgages.
