Regarding the rest of your post. What are those reasons John? We cannot have a discussion if you don't give me the reasons for your post.
Regarding Lawry-Lipton, you said he retired. OK, but he doesn't represent what is happening to current American workers. Was his job ever in jeopardy from immigrants?
What we have is a political class more interested in getting elected and re-elected than what's best for the US and it's people.
