From 1990 to 2010, the United States lost an estimated 2.4 million jobs to China in addition to creating the largest trade deficits in history. The shrinking middle class has recently been a rallying cry for insurgent candidates in both political parties.
On Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced the 94,391,000 Americans were not in the labor force, up 58,000 from July. In September 2015, labor force participation dropped to 62.4 percent of population, the lowest rate since 1977.
As companies cheat Americans out of a living wage, the rising level of inequality in America becomes much harder to ignore. Despite the influx of cheap goods, free trade has proven a disastrous policy for the average American.
The top 1 percent earners in America recovered much of their losses after the financial collapse of 2007. In fact, the American aristocracy absorbed the majority of economic growth from the recovery, leaving normal families with a stagnant wage.
Globalism has created a new elite at the expense of workers worldwide. Our major cities horde wealth from financial and logistical operations as their policies sap the suburbs and countryside of economic vigor.
Overseeing multinational companies, this new aristocracy holds no sentimental ties to the traditional American family.
In fact, this overcaste endeavors against the common interests at every turn, creating myths to justify their importation of cheap labor.
While demonizing the average American as “lazy” or “unskilled,” these parasites undermine our national sovereignty through promoting unsecured borders.
House Speaker Paul Ryan outlined this agenda perfectly in his pro-amnesty speech.
“We can’t have a system where we pay homage and adherence to the rule of law if we don’t have an open system where people can come here in search of their American dream, where the work that won’t be done by people who are already here can be filled by the people who want to come here and do those jobs,” Ryan said.
Since 1990, companies have spent hundreds of millions of dollars lobbying Congress to issue more H1-B visas, going to far as to claim Americans suffer from a lack of education.
Microsoft General Counsel Brad Smith even admitted to 'fabricating a crisis' to justify the importation of more skilled tech workers.
As the establishment falls upon cheap labels of "racism" and "nationalism," the rise of populism in the 2016 election does not bode well for the globalized elite, who clearly underestimated public resentment.
In 2016, the West finally learned the limits of globalist policy, which contributed to Brexit and the Trump campaign.
Now, we will see how corporations and their political puppets sell a false vision to save their crumbling ideology.
