Re: Apple So if we all just work for free (removing overtime protections) and work for what is already below the median income, we'll all magically have jobs?
Yea, it's not that simple. As long as we allow for the trade agreements that sent these jobs out of the country, they're never coming back because we can never be competitive with third world labor, and if we end up going that route, we will have riots in the streets.
Companies are making plenty of money. See the stock market's gain since Obama took office. To say that Obama is somehow anti-business is one of the most laughable notions in politics right now. They're making more money than ever for the most part, they're just not doing anything to provide stimulus to the economy other than lining their own bank accounts. It's a Wall Street recovery.
