The workers left will earn there (high) pay managing the robots. You have to be competitive.

Wow. Minimum wage was more than three an hour when I graduated HS 30 years ago. When I graduated HS, knowing nothing getting a job for ten an hour was average. We didn't do much in the way of Import then. That's why NAFTA has to go.

The economy is brutal. Hopefully the new administration will do better trade deals.

I'm in Commercial/Industrial Construction and that is booming pretty well.
The economy is usually a little behind what I do, but I know the good cycle should be here soon.

the GE workers of today in Vermont that sport an "L16 Rating" make just a bout $30 an hour, so what did GE do, set new rules that new workers coming into GE will never make more than $20 an hour,,

GE reports this is how GE will be able to save money and keep GE in Vermont,

Yeah...bla bla bla...is what GE is saying. Really the USA has lost so many factories and jobs, the big companies still here CAN dictate almost anything and get away with it. The workers can't do jack about it either.

Take a gander at these numbers:
As manufacturing jobs fade, so do service jobs that support them, such as accounting and legal services, Scott said. "Those services used to be counted as manufacturing jobs," he said. "The truth is each manufacturing job supports two additional jobs in the economy."

In all, about 70,000 factories have closed and 5 million jobs were lost in manufacturing since 2000 due to trade with Europe, China and other Asian countries that are now part of the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, a trade agreement among 12 Pacific Rim countries, that’s awaiting congressional approval, Scott said.

That is 70,000 factories lost since 2000. No wonder GE can push the little guy around.

NAFTA, China, Germany, Japan, all have to be looked at and rewritten one for one with large tariffs otherwise.

It has and China is ready to make its move and it is very dangerous.
China Challenges U.S., EU Over WTO Antidumping Duties

BEIJING—China said Monday it would challenge the U.S. and the European Union over how they calculate punitive duties when they accuse Chinese companies of dumping, or selling exports below their cost of production to gain market share.

Under the terms of China’s accession to the WTO in late 2001, WTO members for the first 15 years of China’s membership were allowed to calculate antidumping duties against the Asian giant differently than against some other countries given that China wasn’t a market economy.

That grace period ended Sunday and the U.S. and the EU have opted not to embrace the change, which could potentially subject China to lower antidumping penalties, arguing that China is still not a market economy.

http://www.wsj.com/articles/china-c...ties-1481548883

This is a real game changer and we can't afford to allow China to dump as they want. This could be worse than OPEC.
