When you realize many companies (like Apple) who outsource overseas do so not to stay in business but so they can satisfy expectations demands from the likes of Wall Street for ever-increasing and ever-expanding profits, the argument becomes really tough that the problem lies entirely with American workers unwilling to fall on their swords in the name of maximizing corporate success.

Regardless, when competing for jobs with what might as well be slavery in many parts of the world, exactly how low would you suggest American workers set their expectations?
