    I’m sure spirited arguments can be made both ways regarding fault, is it corporate management or union workers? Reality is that it is likely some of both, but, more than either of those reasons/excuses is that the U.S. borders for trade are wide open and fuel the management/worker tensions. Off shore labor is dirt cheap. American labor is not. So when management gets squeezed they have options, raise the price of Twinkies and risk not being competative in the market place, or, move the plants to Mexico and maintain profit margins. This example over simplifies but the point is until the U.S. get serious about locking down borders to trade the American economic engine will continue to idle down and go to China, Mexico and others. That’s bad news for citizens.

    Citizens are responsible to drive government to address int’l trade borders. Government is a direct reflection of the citizens.
    Citizens do not appear to be interested in addressing trade borders at this time.
    Therefore, the wrangling will continue and the outcome(s) are totally predictable.
