Take back our country from corrupt government and crony capitalism

China and India – not Mexico – are now sending us the most “legal” immigrants to take our very best jobs and lower all wages

No country has sent more of its nationals to the United States over the last decade than China, according to the Census Bureau. In 2006, 350,000 Mexican nationals legally arrived in the U.S., which was more than Chinese, Indians, and Canadians combined. A dozen years later, it was China that supplied the most foreign-born immigrants to the U.S. — surpassing India, Mexico, and Canada in 2018. Since 2010, China has […]

Pains of poverty from slave pay are just ignored by politicians; Elite class uses phony arguments to fight $15 minimum wage

Two big lies have been fed to the American worker by media, think tanks and politicians: Raising the minimum wage to $15 only helps entry-level and very young workers. An increased minimum wage to $15 leads to fewer jobs and closed businesses. The first claim is usually presented as: Only 542,000 American workers are at minimum wage, so why should we endanger jobs for the remaining 118 million full-time workers, […]

Young couple (drive two Ferraris and own a $700,000 home) charged $21 for 3-day hospital stay. Average senior pays $1,364.

The corporate exec was sincere when he explained to me why he didn’t pay most of his workers a wage higher than $14.25 an hour: That rate keeps them under $30,000, and that’s about the cutoff for Medicaid and many other public assistance programs for a family of three.  Without Medicaid they would have to pay for health insurance and that isn’t cheap. A raise to $31,000 can leads to […]

Employers are getting richer by hiring workers under the table. Politicians fall for the tired scam of “jobs Americans won’t do.”

It was a morning air flight last month in Philadelphia, and I was moving through security at the TSA Pre® line, when the alarm sounded. Pulled aside, I was told to send my wallet and glasses through a conveyor. I couldn’t reach the belt from where I stood, so I asked the TSA agent nearby where to place the items. Shut up and do what you’re told, he snarled. Welcome […]

China’s companies win the race for producing employment giants, dwarfing American firms like GM, Apple or Exxon

When you don’t count Walmart, the largest employers in the world, are in China, not the United States. And the biggest firms in China are industrial and manufacturing companies, not a low-wage retailer China National Petroleum (1,636,532), China State Grid (913,546), Foxconn (803,126) and Sninopec (667,799) together employ 4,021,003 workers. Foxconn is well known in the U.S. for producing Apple phones in Longhua Town, Shenzhen, in the south of China. […]

Chuck Schumer said he wanted “illegal aliens” to register with government or face deportation, and he opposed calling them: “undocumented workers”

When you recall President Donald Trump’s promise of no income taxes for couples earning less than $50k, which turned out to be a measly $24k, you conclude that he made a promise he couldn’t or wouldn’t keep. The President’s once trumpeted plan to reduce visa immigration has also gone by the big business-approved wayside. Instead, the Don last week doubled the number of H-2B visas, so now even more low-wage […]

VAT is another big reason our factories are closed, and the good jobs have gone overseas

While the public is focused on tariffs and pundits are bemoaning the dangers of a “trade war,” our foreign competitors have the last laugh every day, watching our factories close and our colleges over-qualify future pizza delivery peons. It doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, it’s easy to see a solution. Here is one unfair trade example. Germany and the European Union charge a 10% tariff on cars […]

Prophecy in 1994 – rebuffed by that Trilateral whiz Charlie Rose – is fulfilled 25 years later

How unfair trade has ruined economy! Television’s historic moments include: America’s landing on the moon, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the tearing down of the Berlin Wall and for some, various Super Bowl touchdowns, and for others, multi-millionaires accepting honors from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). An interview in 1994 of Sir James Goldsmith by recently humiliated PBS legend Charlie Rose is never on […]
