Corporate America doesn't care about the native work force of the U.S. The only concern is increasing profits even if it is at the expense of the long-term health of their companies and the country. Until the unbridled greed of American Corporations is controlled... this problem will only worsen. Left unchecked the U.S. will mirror the average conditions in the countries that paid-off government officials and greedy corporate executives are pushing the jobs to. Welcome to the global economy where there are only 2 classes - the "Haves" and the "Have Nots".
