Default Re: Republicans clear way for worker aid, trade bills

this has EVERYTHING to do with our great elected politicians on their knee's sucking off corporate CEO's for kickbacks....

Quote:
Finally, "threat effects" arise when firms threaten to close plants and move them abroad while bargaining with workers over wages and working conditions. Employers' credible threats to relocate plants, outsource portions of their operations, and purchase intermediate goods and services directly from foreign producers can have a substantial impact on workers' bargaining positions. The use of these kinds of threats is widespread. A Wall Street Journal survey in 1992 reported that one-fourth of almost 500 American corporate executives polled admitted that they were "very likely" or "somewhat likely" to use NAFTA as a bargaining chip to hold down wages
this is class warfare at it's finest... and guess who's side the dirtbags we elect are on ? it looks like 3/4 ths of corporate exec's are god damn liars !!!
