  • Ford to exit Japan and Indonesia  [View news story]
    Great trade deals we've negotiated. Now the soon to be approved TPP will allow companies to bring large numbers of foreign workers into the US and pay them much lower foreign wages. That's the government's answer to trade imbalance?

  • How many bank jobs vanished since the financial crisis?  [View news story]
    I suppose the people who want to blame the banks for the financial crisis feel like justice is done. Unfortunately, these were some of the biggest employers out there. The four major banks, with a combined market cap less than AAPL, employ about a million, while AAPL employs, what, 60,000 Americans? Same with FB, larger market cap than WMT, which employs well over a million people. FB employs, what, 10,000?

    Interesting how we pulled Saudi's ass out of the fire when Saddam was knocking at their door, but today they have little regard for anyone else, including their fellow Muslim refugees.

    Meanwhile, the Greek border is completely open. Isn't that also considered the EU border? Why aren't the immigrants being stopped and held in Greece?

    Fret not, the TPP is coming to save these IT corporations. It allows even more foreign workers into the US and it allows them to be paid foreign based salaries right here in the US. Those Americans with jobs in the fast growing IT sector can kiss their careers goodbye...
