80. I couldn't agree more.....
There are attitudes on both sides. I was more taken aback by the notion that we should just let all the blue collar factory jobs exit the country because we don't really need those jobs and the "we are better than that" anyway attitude. I have seen far too many people left destitute by that notion and many within my own family. If we aren't willing to stand together to defend our jobs whether they be blue collar, white collar, service or production, then we have already lost this battle and now we are just coasting to a halt.

We need a diverse economy and society to be successful and stable and content. Not a total white collar society or total blue collar society or total agrarian society.
