Outsourcing hurt us

Do people who holler “racist” at those who don’t want job-taking refugees to enter the United States have any clue that the reason why Germany can take in so many refugees is because it has a robust, job-creating export economy.

The United States used to have such an economy before corporations started outsourcing jobs to other countries. At the same time, the U.S. government allows exports to flood our retail stores by not protecting workers from having to compete with those in other countries like the Germany’s government does.
