Don't get me wrong, I am not necessarily anti-union, but some times the work rules are too pro-worker to the point where the plant is not profitable and company packs up and leaves. Or even worse, goes under.

As a small business owner, would any of you put up with an employee who showed up 2 hours late once a week because they knew you couldn't fire them for it? Who is that acceptable to?

FWIW: Apple makes the Mac Pro (the big round cylinder) in the USA.

Yes they do. And that's great for them.

But here is the problem, or two, with everybody clamoring for companies to bring manufacturing back here: people like their $30 dvd player or $50 BR player and $300 50" TV. You bring the manufacturing of those products back to the US and the price will go up.

Also, using Apple as an example. If they were to bring production of the iPhone back, either the price would go up or Apple would make less money. Now on the surface Apple makes a lot of money so no big deal if they make less. But it is.

In the 401(k) world we live in, people and pensions invest in stocks and many times the funds offered in those plans will include companies like Apple. So if Apple makes less, their stock doesn't perform as well, the fund doesn't do as well and individual's 401(k)'s don't do as well. These people then will have less money to spend in retirement which will slow overall economic growth. Of course I am talking about this happening to millions of people, not a single person.

And this is all based on the idea that you could get US workers to build the iPhone. I have taken one apart and I would rather work at a convenience store or QSR than put those things together all day. Especially since I could get $15/hr doing which is another issue entirely.
