wow I wonder what happened in the late 90s that led to manufacturing jobs declining. Certainly didn't have anything to do with computers and automation and the internet industrial revolution or anything. It's cause the dang Mexicans!
What next you're going to meme about coal jobs too? >Even people in the 90s could see the writing on the wall regarding NAFTA
"Many economists consider that NAFTA was beneficial for the United States. In a 2012 survey of leading economists, 95% said that on average U.S. citizens benefited from NAFTA. A 2001 Journal of Economic Perspectives review found that NAFTA was a net benefit to the United States. A 2015 study found that US welfare increased by 0.08% as a result of NAFTA tariff reductions, and that US intra-bloc trade increased by 41%."
Oh but SNL made a skit in 1993?! WEW.>I already posted this up thread but in case you missed it: this sort of scene has been playing out across the country for decades thanks to "free trade agreements" with weak currency/slave labor countries
Yeah standard stuff. We're cutting taxes for corporations and paying people garbage and laying them off and then instead of batting up at the people and policies directly making life worse, you're trained to bat down and away. Don't blame retarded economic policy or the shitty corporations that are ruining people's lives! Blame Mexico for having poor people willing to make shit for cheap! We should be exploiting OUR poor people! Fuck free markets! Socialism NOW! >Regards, a mentally ill and sheltered trust fund kid that's literally never had a job in his life
Projecting? I've already talked about how I used to get paid Koch bucks for a few years. What are you 16?> but on the off chance you ever lifted a single finger to work
What's it matter? This is all ad hominem. You don't have an argument. You're still a shill for a kid-diddling retard even if the person you're talking to is lazy.
