We are in a death spiral. Our companies are allowed to take our jobs overseas with no adjusting terrif to import back to the US and they use labor rates and conditions illegal in the US which in turn drags US wages down as we fight for the remaining jobs which means we have less money to spend which means we must buy cheap crap made overseas.
It seems we have swung from one extreme to the other. Somehow GM did just fine selling cars and making profit when labor was $72/hr and now that it is $27/hr and no GM car is made in the US they are bankrupt? Ironic or Karma?
