Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
These areas have been hit hard by recession and the failure of U.S. industry to stand firm against unreasonable demands of labor unions that have basically rendered them uncompetitive with foreign corporations

the heartless disingenuousness in this statement is galling.

damn workers should live on $2 p.day and like it!

often enough it's not even 'foreign' corporations, but american ones, who've offshored the work force.

cunning, hitting the unions and the furriners in one statement...

the bigger the lie, the more believable.

and so it goes...

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
