16. The full employment law
Edited on Sun Sep-14-03 02:56 PM by Donna Zen
...has the mechanisms to kick in right now if they were funded. I didn't know that until I listened to Clark. Also, PB is exactly correct, and it is not only the environment. Clark said that it costs as much to hire an East German engineer as it does to pay the health insurance for an American one. All of this is intertwined. Safe working conditions and child labor laws and a forty hour work week do not exist in the countries sucking up our jobs. Do you think we should aim for the lowest common denominator? Could someone in this country live on the average $800 a year wages of China?

I do not shop at Walmarticus...Trust me, I get it.
