    Enjoy your run Mexico, in time your standard of living will climb and when that happens your jobs will move too, just how it is. Lets be honest most of whats driving jobs out of the US and Canada is greed. The CEO of my US company ruined my company and they paid him 200 times the average worker. I used to purchase K2 skies when they were paid in the US and then they made them in China, cost of skies never went down, just the profits went up. We all have helped this happen, buying crap at Wall-mart. I wish all workers well, its a struggle.

    White Canadians brag about their wage requirement being high while those third world countries can work all day for a "song & a dance". Now white Canadian are on welfare. Pride has it down fall. Very soon white Canadians will be seeking jobs in third world countries and earning a "song & a dance".

    I worked for Daimler Trucks at the sister Freightliner plant. I remember when the the company shut down Sterling. It was a sad day for everyone. The Mexican plants have caused a lot of good Americans And Canadians to lose their jobs. And the trucks that come out of those plants are crap.

    I work a great construction job in a very business friendly state. I will never believe my job is secure. We have to constantly learn new skills and sane and invest as much as possible.

    Mexico is winning this war, because the US Government gave them the industry.

    Yet when those manufactured products are shipped back to the U.S., they are sold at the same cost as if they were built in the U.S. Manufacturers win!! Consumers loose!!

  • Gandalfdenvite - 2 weeks ago

    Mexicans are better workers, just as skilled but with higher work ethics..., as US workers! Chinese and Mexicans and Africans are just as intelligent... as US workers, so not only low skilled manufacturing jobs will move to low cost countries, but highly skilled jobs in engineering and computer science... will very soon follow! Chinese engineers are already just as skilled as US engineers, but for just a fraction of the cost! USA must learn to live with the fact that the entire world is one single market, and that the future customers with big money will mostly be in China! Every human being is a profitable resource as workers/taxpayers... so USA... must start seeing every human being, including every refugee..., as a profitable RESOURCE! Just as almost every other resource, oil and..., it needs large investments to be truly profitable, so USA must realize that it needs to invest in, educate..., refugees... to be able to profit from them as workers/taxpayers...! The answers is not trade wars and protectionism, the real solution is to adapt and further educate the workforce to be able to create new technology and new jobs! USA must accept the fact that Chinese and Mexicans also need jobs to go to every day, so USA must not fear, or try to prevent, Chinese and Mexicans being able to get jobs! USA must stop believing Chinese and Mexicans must be unemployed so that US citizens can have jobs! If Mexicans... have no jobs, no future, then they are forced to become refugees in USA..., and no wall... will ever be able to stop these desperate people!

    Companies that export to China will and should take their jobs out of US to neighbouring countries to avoid tariffs. It is what Trump wants
