Now with globalization the big guys are China or India. They knock it off in cheap materials, whore up the market with predatory pricing and tell you to take your "rights" and piss up a rope.
It's more than that. With globalization, the 3rd world labor pool becomes the norm. This pulls down earning power of the American employee while retaining the wealth of the corporation and its owner/operators. The result is what we are already seeing; the death of the middle class and rising separation of the rich and poor. As long as there is a huge glut of slave labor in the 3rd world, cheap international transportation, and no equalizing tariffs, the American worker and the middle class are doomed.
