We know that American manufacturing jobs have been going overseas.
Jobs making clothing and textiles are among those vanishing from the
United States. Making matters worse, the jobs going to China, Vietnam,
El Salvador and other nations, are not helping to pull abjectly poor
people in those countries out of poverty. Rather, the workers often
receive wages that barely sustain life.
