I think there should be laws that if a majority of yourbusiness is done here than you must have a majority of your business HERE. To follow OUR laws, labor and otherwise.
What bugs me is these large corporations that are making BILLIONS do not care that they are hurting America by sending the jobs overseas. and NOW they are going to be able to push candidates that will work on THEIR behalf and NOT on OUR behalf

I thought that that many was already overseas. Somehow I believe that number is lacking.

Special- think about BIG business and how they manipulate/avoid corporate taxation by moving their tax base off shore to low/no tax countries. If I were a sbo in the US and forced to make concessions like you mentioned, I'd be angry that big business is able to successfully avoid making the same difficult decisions. This is just another example of the US being penny wise and $$$$ foolish. In response to the question, yes, I believe that more and more jobs will be moved. Lower labor $$$ and no benefit packages to contend with. IMO, we are on our way to becoming a 2 class system. Those with well paid, skilled, not readily shipped or robot trained, service industry jobs and those who live in poverty.
