: How are they doing this? What coercion is being acted upon them?

Sorry - meant NAFTA (Got NATO on the brain)

It's economic coercion. I've explained this before.

: : It is Definitely NOT one cent to one cent. It is one cent abroad versus at least ten cents here. If the companies paid ten cents abroad, I would have no objection.

: Why not 20 cents, if that becomes the rate in th US in 50 yrs why not just implement it right now?

: If 10 cents were demanded then the western company wouldnt bother moving and there would be zero cents paid out in the 3rd world.

Quite likely.

:That would not achieve any benefit.

Yes it would. As the price of items rose in this country to reflect OUR labor costs, the ability to pay more competitve (sustainable living wages) abroad would be able to rise.
