Organized labor is missing the boat. Whoever said we can't compete with labor that basically works for the food they eat that day hit the (Chinese) nail right on the head. Organized labor needs to head overseas and start organizing there, not here. Boosting the pay/benefits of all overseas labor will end the sweat shop conditions, and put the U.S. State Dept in a bind - what are they going to do, oppose the unions' efforts to make things better in these deplorable working conditions? They'd have to get on the bandwagon too. Better working conditions = better pay = happier people. This may save some American lives in the future, as well.
Right now overseas labor is basically at where our labor was in this country in the 1870s and 1880s. Organization improved things then, regardless of what may have happened later. The same thing will work over there.
