With i****************s crossing the border and American jobs being given to people in China or other countries its no wonder more Americans live in poverty. What can the U.S do to stop this and give america back its jobs.

Employers or citizens cannot solve this fundamental problem, the government needs to step in and reduce immigration and outsourcing back to its 1980 levels

Well, we could reduce the average hourly wage to 50 cents an hour. that should discourage some of them.

Try to buy and do business with as many companies as possible that stay state side. Boycott the ones that go out of the country (yes, give up the Hershey Bars, too, I'm afraid).

Money talks. Boycott companies that outsource their jobs to third world countries for cheap labor. Goods made overseas are not any cheaper than the goods that were manufactured in the US. Who keeps the profits?

Buy American made products. Stores sell what people buy. If more people would insist on buying American, stores would stop carrying so many imported goods. Be prepared for a long search and premium prices for premium products.

Our own government is allowing US companies to set-up in different countries with the same tax breaks as here in the US. It's not just cheap labor, they don't have to meet the safety, and other standards set here in the US. Look at everything that has come into the US from China, and the problems that have been... More

I don't see what illegal immigration has to do with American jobs moving to foreign countries, but if you want to stop them from moving, you should boycott all products that were made in China. Before you buy anything, check to make sure it was not made in China. If you hear about a company outsourcing it's jobs to... More
