    No it won't. You guys like to say, if you don't like the pay and conditions, work someplace else. Well the same holds true for business right? If you don't like the conditions, go someplace else. "No place to go?" Then stay out of business OR go work for someone.

    That's exactly what they're doing -- going out of business, and sometimes, when they do, hundreds, if not thousands of employees lose their jobs as well.

    That's what happened with Hostess -- their workers joined the culinary and bakers union and they demanded higher wages that the company could not pay. The union dug in its heels and Hostess closed its doors -- went bankrupt all across the nation. Because they product they produced could not sustain the higher wages.

    Then what happened? Another company bought up the old Hostess name and reopened, but not as a union shop. Now, Americans can once again stuff their faces with Twinkies that (to me) taste like Tide detergent.

    Forcing wages that an industry cannot support will cause that industry to collapse. That's fine as long as the government and the unions take the responsibility for the damage they caused.

    They will just do what they have been doing for the past 27 years.............sending everything to China or India.

    I worked for a healthcare management company that sold their services as "all work, all processes done in-house, inside the United States". It was one of their selling points to potential customers that there was nothing sent overseas, to Canada, or to Mexico. But it was all LIES! They had PLENTY of accounts/personal information going to India to be worked. This included patients private info, bank account info, their social security numbers, etc....

    The place was, and still is, more corrupt than the ENTIRE DNC put together in one room! If you wonder WHY you get SO many spam calls, and how these POS get your numbers and info.........this is how they get it. This company is not the only one to send private information from healthcare companies overseas for "processing". Even the healthcare company billing office I work for right now has thousands of accounts every week sent overseas for "processing".

    Companies that do not have vested Chinese interests send their info.......or rather, OUR info......overseas to India.
    Companies that DO have vested Chinese interests, send their customers/patients info to China.

    So yeah........things will just go back to the way they were before Trump. All jobs being eliminated in THIS country and sent to China, India, and even Mexico.

    Fools think a minimum wage of $15 is the solution best for the poor. What they don't tell you is that those workers will rise above the poverty level and lose government aid. Including food stamps or EBT.
