Welcome to the real world. This is exactly what happened to Canadian jobs under NAFTA, except those jobs went to the US thanks to massive US (and state, and local) government subsidies and tax breaks that we just couldn't hope to match. Now that Bush is spending hand over fist in his pet war, you get to deal with it too. I know many people here who have never found another job since the factor closed and moved 800 jobs to North Carolina in the mid-90s. One of those people walks up and down the centre line of the highway about 8 hours a day, in any weather, not caring if he gets hit or not, and has for years.
