We are creating a growing cheap labor pool of undereducated high school dropouts and immigrants to compete with peasants in China and Pakistan.

I wonder if the peasants in China and Pakistan at least get paid the wages they are owed?

Fast-Food Workers Decry Widespread Wage Theft In New York: Report

Posted: 05/16/2013 4:36 pm EDT

Vicente de Jesus Garcia says he had a bad feeling when he arrived at a Harlem housing project three years ago to deliver a pizza. He didn't like the looks of the place, so he told the customers to meet him outside. As he waited, a group of men pulled him into the lobby, threw him to the ground, kicked him until he was black and blue, and stole $400.

On Thursday, Garcia, a Mexican immigrant and a father of seven, appeared at a rally outside a fast-food outlet in New York City to denounce the people he views as the real thieves -– not the men who took his cash in the lobby but the multinational corporation that employs him.
