Alas, I don't.

We don't build it here anymore because we've priced ourselves out of the market.
When those who built, and the unions who represent them, insisted on a wage benefit package putting them on the par with middle managers and other professionals, well, the rest of the world not only found out they could build it cheaper, but that our workers would buy thier crap because it was cheaper!

We need to get competitive in the global economy. And doing it will mean some adjustment to "expectations" in certain segments of our society.
I just have to jump in here:
A perfect example of some (not all) of the workers in this country:
I was camped at a forest campground once and a man came to the door asking for help as he said he didn't have a job and no money; I told him the farm down the highway had a sign out by the road trying to get help picking apples; they were paying minimum wage by the hour.
His answer to me was; I ain't working for no stinking $7.00 an hour.
He would rather beg.
Of course I gave him-------nothing.
