Clinton signing NAFTA was probably the single biggest union buster in this country. Virtually every manufacturer of chains, sprockets, belts (like v-belts and flat conveyor belting), hubs, bearings and bearing units, etc (basically everything you would see in a factory that is used to convey, fab and build products) moved to Mexico within 1-2 years.<quoted text>The thing is, Rmoney and his 1% ilk wouldn't care if America became the slave labor. Why else would they want to destroy unions, minimum wage and child labor laws? Well, profits, of course, but- why stop there? Why not own the whole country?
You can blather all day long and disagree with that as much as you want but it won't change the facts; but I am in this industry and watched it unfold as it happened.
Almost all of my stock orders come from Mexico, some from Canada and the rest (very very few) from China.
