What is the best way to solve job outsourcing?
Since many economists point to unions as a major factor in forcing companies to place jobs outside of the USA, and these countries do not have this "union factor," which causes their labor to be cheaper than ours is here, what about exporting our unions? At least then the playing field would be more level between us and these countries. What do you think? What would be your solution(s)?

End the collaboration of labor and politics. End trade with foreign governments that have laws forbidding their labor force from unionizing. End our participation in free trade agreements; you shouldn't have to enter into a legally binding, multi-national treaty to trade freely and fairly.

25% tariff on imports, same as China charges for our exports to them.

It isn't a problem. Use the available labor to initiate new job sectors and new job growth. It's called capitalism and competition. Compete or admit that someone can do it better, cheaper, etc.

I would stop giving companies that outsource tax cuts. Might even increase taxes on imports.

Dump the unions, which have outlived their usefulness, and eliminate the minimum wage. Problem solved.

I do not know exactly what the solution is but one thing I do know for certain.... Plain old common sense goes a long ways. You seem to have a good idea of exporting our unions but it won't, and couldn't happen.
