I can see your point, guys.
But, I find it encouraging that the foreign automakers are building cars here because of all the jobs they've created. They could have gone to China or Mexico to assemble their cars. We can all easily agree that our labor rates are much higher here than the foreign automaker'* alternative final assembly countries. Quality would be a moot point since their extremely refined process would continue.
Having those jobs here does strenghten our economy, even if all the profits from the fruits of our labor ends up overseas. There'* no easy answer, however we have to be more open minded if we expect to thrive in a global economy.
