>>3764929>You mean how American wages stagnated for decades overall but, completely coincidentally according to people like you, China's wages and Mexico's wages are rising exponentially during that exact same timeframe
Yeah they're burgeoning economies. They're essentially going through puberty/adolescence. And we're a mature economy. You're like a 45 year old, looking at how much some 14 year olds are growing and getting jealous.
Why exactly do you think other countries shouldn't grow and thrive as economies tailored to serve us? It's like you learned that the bellman makes $40,000 a year and now you refuse to tip until they make $30,000 or something.
And why not just support living wage adjustments for US workers if you have a problem with our stagnating wages? Why not just pay our workers more instead of competing with places that pay their workers shit? What happened to American exceptionalism? >that "automation" proponents claim aren't needed anymore to begin with?
lol "proponents." I ike how observable, unambiguous reality has to be something with opponents. >NAFTA made domestic production illogical and even unviable
No Mexico's low cost of living did. And in exchange for less American workers doing nothing jobs making bullshit, we got all that bullshit cheaper! The economic exchange here was and always is in OUR favor. We lost how many manufacturing jobs in the last 30 years? How many jobs related to the internet are there now? How many were there 30 years ago?
Like idk how to explain that the things you care about ARE DISTRACTIONS. Who cares if manufacturing jobs went down? Do you think there weren't other jobs? And if you want 1950s-style manufacturing, you probably want 1950's-style taxes. >Good
You're a cuck for Exxon my dude. A lot of money was spent for you to feel this way. >Wow, a completely ambiguous metric increased by a whole fraction of a fraction of a percent,
Yeah that's good. This is a benefit.
