If corporate bigwigs would stop paying themselves such obscene salaries and mind boggling bonuses, maybe then they could afford to pay American workers decent wages and we would still be able to honestly and proudly say "MADE IN AMERICA"! It's shameful that these companies couldn't show a profit & growth for us but apparently can for foreign executives. John Hancock must be SPINNING in his grave-SHAME ON ALL OF THE 'POWERS THAT BE' for selling us out.

This will change, of course, but economic changes are rarely engendered by success; and oncoming necessary changes to our US economy are now engendered by theese financial difficulties we now experience.
As challenging politicians say, "vote for change". And so we do, silently through our wallets, and loudly in the campaigns. The results will be mostly influenced by what we do via our spending procedures.
