For me, one of the biggest grumbles, is military contracts. Even though these "no bid" contracts go to "American" companies, the "American" companies turn around and hire foreign subcontractors, pocket the profit by hiring companies that pay slave wages. The "American" company isn't doing anything but shifting US dollars (tax payer dollars) out of the country.
I mentioned in an earlier post, that the a jobs program, rebuilding failing infrastructure, could be a solution to get citizens working and consuming again. But when I was talking to my H about it, he said "the only way it would work is if they require American companies to hire American workers. Otherwise, some big American contractor will get the contract and start importing
*** Dexter, the number one reason, far beyond all others, that businesses are not hiring is that no one is buying their products, meaning that there is not enough spending.
*** Dexter, you making a claim that a policy of President Obama hurts the economy or has caused uncertainty is not proof that the policy hurts the economy or has caused uncertainty. R3dx1 did the same thing and I already replied to him about that.
