    Manufacturing jobs and wages are what made this country great. They are what spurred our economy. People made enough money to live well, buy home, cars, etc., and put their kids through college. Now, that most of those jobs are gone, and the threat of outsourcing remaining jobs keeps wages low, where is our economy? Besides, can you make it on what you were getting paid 15 years ago?

    I worked in an auto plant one summer. It was hard and dirty work. I wasn't in the union yet, but I made good money. I could have stayed, but that job only served to reinforce the fact that I needed to go back to school. The people I worked with earned every dime they got paid. I certainly wouldn't have done that job for 1/2 the pay.

    Besides, weren't you the big Toyota supporter? Why help Japan?

    My Toyota was actually made in the US.

    But, the profits go to Japan. So, you are still helping Japan.

    And, unlike Mexico, Japan pretty much closes its market to American cars and trucks. In fact, Japan recently had a program similar to “Cash for Clunkers,” however American cars did not qualify for purchase under the program.

    And, believe it or not, Buick is the big seller in China.
