Beijing (AFP) – Trade between the world’s two biggest economies is mutually beneficial, Beijing said Wednesday after presumptive US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump accused China of “rape”.
In the run-up to Tuesday’s Indiana primary, where the businessman swept to victory and his last serious challenger Ted Cruz bowed out of the race, Trump told a campaign rally: “We can’t continue to allow China to rape our country, and that’s what we’re doing.”
“We’re going to turn it around, and we have the cards, don’t forget it,” he said. “We have a lot of power with China.”
Asked about Trump’s comments and whether Beijing was nervous about the prospect of him becoming US president, foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei told reporters that the election was a US internal affair and China had no comment on it.
But he went on: “I want to point out that US-China trade relations are essentially mutually beneficial and win-win in keeping with the shared interests of both sides.”
The pressure that the H1b situation is putting on the Tech sector wages is a clear and present danger to every STEM worker in the US … for exactly the same reasons that we have lost so much manufacturing.
In addition to the 40 to 60 percent of manufacturing jobs lost overseas, already there are millions of IT and customer service jobs outsourced to India, Pakistan, etc. and the H1b workers are moving to the US to take the jobs that can’t be outsourced entirely.
Not to mention the H1a and H2b programs. Those programs are to secure unskilled foreign workers as indentured servants.
Back in the ’60s families from all walks of life used to go pick fruit and veggies every summer. So many people did this in fact that it’s the main reason kids were still out of school for the summer. So that families could work the harvest.
Also during that time almost everyone working was involved in some kind of manufacturing in some way, no matter what the profession.
Those fruit and vegetable picking jobs I was speaking of above would still be available if not for the H1a program. Assembly line workers are replaced by H2b indentured servants er I mean workers every day.
Yet the media, the Dems and the GOPe keep telling the American citizen that its “rain” that they feel pouring over them …
