If a US company cannot compete with offshore labor then go down another path. Explain why a trade imbalance is a bad thing? Just because you impose tariffs or are against foreign labor, it is unlikely you can force labor in the US. Free trade is free trade without strings. The US can impose 100% tariffs on many imported items but there's no guarantee that these items will then be produced in the USA. The US unemployment rate is supposedly at what...4.5%...so most people have jobs who want to work. Not sure how you define 'good jobs'? No one is making higher paid workers compete with lower paid workers? US business decides what areas they can compete. There's no 'race to the bottom'??
