That's not doing any of us any good over here who were put out of work
by cheap foreign labor and greedy management droids seeking bigger
bonuses for making shareholders very happy. Free trade has gone too
far. What we need is for all non-management employees working as
programmers, web site designers, etc., who are U.S. citizens, to go
on strike---while also demanding time-and-a-half back pay in order to
resume work when the strike is over. This would be all the more
effective if those working for the government doing defense work that
can't be turned over to the foreigners go on strike as well. That's
one way to make 'droids and politicians feel some heat for the
problems they've caused. Ok, it will probably never happen, but it's
neat to think about.
