Should US Jobs Move to Detroit Instead of China?
The very thought of eliminating the Minimum Wage might seem like a horrid, medieval joke. Yet, did it ever occur to you that the whole job outsourcing argument was a sham? Why? Because if we treated our own areas of extreme poverty like we do India and China, we wouldn't need to see another American job move overseas again. For is it not obvious that work is moved overseas because labor is cheaper? Further, does it not make sense to keep jobs in America if we have areas such as Detroit, at 50% unemployment, which are as impoverished or as needy of employment as various parts of Asia?
But what about forcing the poor into poorly paying jobs, you ask? Well, with a revived economy, many more higher paying jobs would result, meaning entire ghetto areas could be transformed into oasis' of prosperity. Or do we assume jobs with modest pay are more of a dead-end than permanent welfare status? This article explores the option of breaking the Minimum Wage Embargo for restarting the US economy.
It's good to talk.
