BullBearMS: tenpoundsofcheese: wtf are you talking about?We're discussing manufacturing jobs.Intel's automated factories produce quite a lot of chips that cost quite a lot of money.
silvervial: Either there will be a return to focus on the working class/poor/middle class...or there will be revolt.
agsfark: choo: Thanks, GOPAin't that the truth. How could they not find a candidate to beat the current Moron inChief?
Nabb1: I just hope this doesn't reflect poorly on Obama.
edmo: Soon we'll have the largest, most educated, well-armed class of poor people in the world.
fatassbastard: If you saved a mere $50/month ($25/paycheck) over those 10 years and you invested it in the S&P 500 via an index fund or ETF, you would now have $8,883.78:http://www.bankrate.com/calculators/savings/simple-savings-calculato r. aspx
mod3072: Wow, good job. You saw right through my clever ruse to shill for the Republican party by bashing the Republican party. I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling kids!

Amos Quito: CujoQuarrel: Amos Quito: Vectron: Obviously we need more workers. Amnesty!Yeah, the cool thing is that our new "guests" will be willing to flip those burgers at half the going wage.It gets even better.Last I heard the new arrivals don't count toward your 50 person limit on the new health care law (Obamacare)So1) They'll work cheaper2) They work harder3) You can give them full time jobs and it not push you over your 50 limit so that you have to spend all that money on health care.4) There now legal to hireWhy would you hire a native born when you can get these guys? Fire the born heres and hire the new legal illegals.Bonus:Once the "new legals" are legal, it will open up a huge demand to fill the positions that they formerly occupied as illegals, so we'll have a brand new bumper crop of "undocumented workers" pouring over the borders to fill that demand.VIVA IMMIGRATION REFORM!!!
tenpoundsofcheese: So you want Intel to have people produce those chips by hand using teeny tiny tweezers?
mod3072: tax and trade policies that don't encourage (or, ideally, that actively DIScourage) shipping good jobs overseas.
Nabb1I just hope this doesn't reflect poorly on Obama.
Amos Quito: [i1121.photobucket.com image 631x615]Repubs have been blaming the Dems and vice versa for generations...How's that working out for you, America?
One Bad Apple: johnryan51: 15.80 an hr. Wow, I'm surprised that its that high. If that's the true # then its not to bad.It also depends om where you live too. $16 an hour in NYC is starvation wages.
