The reason why people aren't making 100K a year on a assembly line is because someone else in the world could do it for a fraction.

Hockey players are not going to be replaced by cheaper foreign labour.

I don't think Wing Wang Hoo of china is going to be replacing Brian Gionta any time soon, even if both are about the same size.
Complete fiction.

I said AUTO ASSEMBLY. Those jobs were lost to Japanese and German companies, not to Chinese companies. They were lost because management at GM, Ford, etc ran the companies into the ground, they couldn't compete on quality terms.

Japanese and German workers are actually better paid . . .
