How can workers in the USA compete with the slave labor of China?

If we continue to allow our govrenment to treat China as an equal trading partner when the people there are not free, won't we become weaker and weaker? China is one of the main reasons behind the $ of oil. We had the best healthcare system in the world, and we shipped it overseas with all the manufactureing jobs

They can't compete with workers forced to work14 hour days for 15 Cents per hour and then they take a cot in the back for sleep. Chinese goods are crap anyway. I started reading labels years ago, it's tough but you can find non Chinese products if your willing to work at it.

We can't compete with the slave wages in China. The US will eventually collapse due to sending all our technology over to China. But the government doesn't care, as long as they get rich, to h*ll with the common people.

Elect someone who will at least try to appeal trade laws along woth changing the tax codes for big business, by rewarding them to stay in the country. Vote Obama.

The "average" US worker now makes $1,000.00 less than he used to but the cost of goods keep going up. The value of the dollar keeps going down, Illegal aliens keep slithering across the border, jobs keep going overseas, guess we will be competitive soon enough!

We don't need to compete in manufacturing; we sell information, technology, food, arms, entertainment, and drugs.

U can thank Bill CLinton for giving them most favored trade status but most of what they make is low tech easy to make trinkets. Americans are still superior in the high tech field and manufacturing jobs but unions and high taxes are forcing these jobs to either Canada or Mexico so again thank a Dem when you see one.

They cannot. But the Chinese Labor is considered expensive now and the manufacturing processes are moving to places like Singapore and Malaysia and the problems will decidedly get worse.

what do you mean the people are not free? and, Americans drive does not mean Chinese can't drive.
