It's funny that the same people that are screaming for companies like Apple to bring jobs back stateside are the ones claiming that illegal immigrants do the jobs Americans don't want. Apple and companies of the like are outsourcing jobs because the cost of manufacturing stateside has gone up to the point that we can no longer compete with foreign countries. It's not just the workers demanding more money and benefits to complete an unskilled task repeatedly, it's the supply chain and lack of flexibility. Basically, everyone in this country feels entitled to a better life rather than the fact that they have to earn it.

2. If Kyle wants to allow commentary and opinion, then post such articles in some other forum or add an Opinion forum.
"Donald Trump, speaking on his favorite media outlet Fox News..." - Trump appears on many broadcast and cable networks.
"However, even Trump, the horrible business man that he is..." - More opinion. A billionaire is a 'horrible businessman'?
Let's add more commentary, this time about a 'horrible' writer. Perhaps a degree in Journalism didn't include spelling and grammar.
"However, even Trump, the horrible business man that he is..." - Try 'businessman', one word.
"Trumps interview and response come..." - Try 'came'.
"...in lieu of a New York Times article..." - 'in lieu of'? "in lieu of' means instead of.

the only thing to US Gov can do to make things "better" for business is to strip away the rights and protections of the American worker OR allow our environment to suffer.
I agree with you that Trump is a moron, but to say that China is a better place to do business than America is just.....Anti-American.
by the way, how many of the major appliances in your home are American made? How many of the major appliances in your home or made by American companies? (TV, Tablet, Phone, Computer, Refrigerator, Washer, Dryer, Vacuum,
then check your closet, where are all your clothes made?
and the car(s) your family owns?
Its not just companies and their offshore jobs but American consumers and what they're buying.

" the U.S. is in a post-industrial era, where knowledge and ideas are more valuable than the ability to assemble. Attempting to move an entire country back in time to its manufacturing heyday isn’t the solution to job creation."
Couldn't have said it better myself.

Well my take on this is that the reason for this country going broke is because we don't make anything anymore in this country it was all done by design, you tax the hell out of these companies and there not going to stick around in this country, companies leave jobs leave, there for no jobs means no money circulating, no money circulating means less consumers and less consumers means less business, means businesses close down. Pretty simple stuff. I hear a bunch of excuses but regardless this country is going to hell in a hand basket!

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

If the person you quoted used such grammar in a professional setting then you'd have more of a point.

Nice job Phillip, you created an almost purely political thread on the front page. I'm told to leave politics alone if I even mention a politician's name in chit-chat.
Not to mention that an opinion about what kind of jobs we need isn't even news.

This job topic really brings out the morons.
A) Apple sells products internationally so manufacturing products in the US will put the price out of reach for 90% of the worlds population.
B) North America doesn't have the population to meet the manufacturing and logistical timelines the largest tech company in the world needs.
The problem with stupidity is that it goes hand in hand with being myopic.

Wow! Could the writer of this article show his liberalism even more? I stopped reading after the second paragraph with all the nonsense the write put in this article.
Secondly, if you're telling me a company with 30%+ profit margins can't pay more for labor (and mechanization) to build these in the US then you aren't trying hard enough.

**** u trump!

And anybody actually listening to Trump is an idiot.
-A self-serving idiot who is such a great business owner that his own CASINO 'where the House always wins', filed for bankruptcy.
-Running a TV show where he finds it funny to fire people who, let's face it, 10 percent or so of the population, as of late, has been let go in this economy.
-And seems to offer a lot of unsolicited advise, on a very conservative news channel...
Trump must use RIM.... Doesn't want to let go....

Donald Trump doesn't make sensible remarks that often but even more disturbing to me is the fact that my fellow Americans approve of such corporate behavior. Nafta has killed the production in the USA and it seems like 9 out of 10 people agree with it. I don't think a post industrial USA benefits very many people besides those creeps that outsourced our jobs. Not everyone in America can sell an idea and be paid weekly. In case you hadn't noticed "labor" pays the bills and ideas create the labor so it's essential to have both if there is to be a strong middle class.

Inspiring words from a man that makes his current career all about saying "you're fired" to Americans.
