As our next President, Donald Trump, continues to select members of his cabinet who have great business and management credentials, the American business community is responding more and more positively to his efforts.
The CEO of United States Steel Corp. told a CNBC interviewer that because of Trump’s policies, U.S. Steel could end up re-hiring the 10,000 people they were forced to lay off because of Obama. “I’m more than happy to bring back the employees that we were forced to lay off during that depressing period,” Longhi said in an interview on CNBC.
Ford Motor Co. is now saying they may not move jobs to Mexico and other companies are backing off from moving, but we still have big corporations like Caterpillar that are firing their US employees and replacing them in their newly built Mexican plants, with Mexican workers.
This is a two-way street. The Mexican workers are paid about a tenth of what American workers are paid because they have no unions. This is opening up the Mexican job market and improving their economy, tho, because most everything is cheaper in Mexico, provided you’re not a guest at one of their resorts. As their economy improves, and more jobs become available, more Mexicans will stay home and work there, and the flow of illegals could even start to reverse. All those Muslimes pouring into Mexico in order to cross over into the US might just stay in Mexico. Talk about blind justice, the Mexicans would hate it but we Americans would love it.
Anyway, while we are losing jobs and manufacturing to Mexico, we’re losing Mexicans back to Mexico too since a lot of those jobs were taken by Mexicans anyway. At the same time, the unions here are being weakened as they keep losing paying members, and Right To Work laws keep getting passed. Our unions have served their purpose and become corrupt years ago. Time for them to disband and go away. This will mean lower wages for a lot of people but it will also mean LOWER PRICES for goods, for ALL OF US, and when we pay less to buy something, we need less money to get by.
I’m all for seeing the Mexican economy boom, and the faster it does so, the sooner we end the invasion of illegal aliens. Once that Wall is built and well patrolled by our expanded Border Patrol, and the laws enforced against the hiring of illegal aliens, that too will return many jobs to actual Americans.
Once Mexico is finally forced to stop relying on us for their food and shelter, they’ll have to deal with their economy seriously. They never have. Another thing is going to happen with all this, which is that the flood of drugs from Mexico will cease. I can well imagine Trump getting the Death Penalty passed through a Republican Congress for anyone caught smuggling drugs into our country and I’d love to see it. I wish we still used public humiliation, such as public floggings, on our worst offenders, and public executions. They were more effective in keeping order than the way we hide all the punishment away, now. That won’t happen, but I’m sure there’s going to be some very effective changes in the way we’ve been doing things, no doubt.
It’s wonderful to have this feeling of optimism and real hope for real change, at last. I truly thought our nation was near the end. And it was.
