What does USA and AUS for that matter expect.The more factories that close the less export,and that = bigger trade deficit.TRUMP will fix it.Free trade is not fair when China pays there workers 100 per month and we pay our workers 4000 per month.
FREE trade does not work.
Thanks from coke

These ching chong countrys must be limited as to what they can send west.
Australia doesn't have a car industry anymore because tariffs were lifted.10 thousand jobs lost in the last year.
Are we all to become countries working for 50 cents an hour.
Thanks from coke

Electricians make more than 4000 per month in the US. I was earning over 6000 per month before I retired as a non-union electrician in a non-union food processing plant and I did not have an electrician license and only a high school education. I got my foot in the door and self-taught myself.

Actually I was going to say 8000 per month but didn't think USA paid there workers that much so I said 4000 as to not offend USA workers.
But you are correct,car workers working 50 hour week could earn in excess of 100 thousand per year.
Sadly no more.
Thanks from Twisted Sister

You can believe this or not but I knew a guy who worked at the Ford Taurus-Sable auto plant in Atlanta in 1999. He said one janitor not in management made over 100,000 per year with overtime. The Ford Taurus-Sable auto plant was razed years ago and nothing is their except for a big field. Condos were supposed to be built where the old auto plant was but I moved to Ohio since then so do not know what happened to the condo idea. I drive to Florida and back to Ohio once a year and it is still a barren field.

edit: I also knew a guy who worked for Delta Airlines in Atlanta in 1999 programming laptops and he said he made $70 per hour straight time. Then came the crash of Delta Airlines stock when it was worth less than ten cents per share.

Sincerely,
Coke the Magnificent
Coke the Magnificent, the proposed unilateral transferable Import Certificate, (IC) policy is NOT “pure” free trade but it is absolutely pure competitive free enterprise.

I do not particularly welcome nor do I advocate proactively avoiding a “trade war”.
The IC policy changes the rules governing goods crossing USA borders. That change of environment changes what responses are to nations immediate and longer term best interests.

The IC proposal would work because it’s predicated upon we and all other entities behaving as what we perceive to be in our own best interests.

If USA adopted the IC proposal, any entities perpetrating any mischief to undermine USA’s economic interests would do themselves harm and USA would suffer little or no harm.
The penalties for mischief would not be due to any, (including the USA) government’s proactive efforts, but rather to the normal progression of market forces.

Respectfully, Supposn

Wild caught shrimp is expensive in the US. I am not sure what the difference is between shrimp and prawns. Many years ago in a famous fish house near San Francisco I ordered prawns and they were little shrimp but very tasty. Spengler's Grotto is the name of the fish house and web search it because I don't know how to copy and paste.
