One last thing before I go. There's an increasingly shrinking piece of the pie left for workers, once execs and shareholders have taken their pie pieces,instead of fighting immigrants for that tiny share, why not just fight to expand the worker pie piece?

Another thing that could be done to instantly change how companies structure wages...raise taxes on the highest income earners SIGNIFICANTLY.There's a reason we had a top tax rate in the 70's when the avg wage at the#1 employer was $50 an hr(GM) compared to now,$10 an hr(Walmart)

But the cheap foreign labor is irrelevant. What matters is labor monopsony, and worker bargaining power. You can eradicate every foreigner if you wanted tomorrow and wages wouldn't move a lick, but what would happen is an immediate recession due to a significant worker shortage

I'm talking about government action to hold big firms accountable, to keep the market competitive, police against fraud,theft,abuse, monopoly concentration. Or that evil R word,regulation. You want an actual moving market then this is what's required

What's the difference if you're instead slaves to a "globalist corporate oligarchy?" What you guys fail to grasp is there's such a thing as smaller or limited government, there's government, and then market rules that can change who benefits and gets "to be slaves"

What's funny is a bunch of former Ron Paul Libertarian losers figured this out a long time, which is why so many went Alt Right authoritarian, it requires government action.

A Federal Jobs Guarantee, a higher min wage indexed to inflation, a federal charter that mandated a % of workers to makeup company boards would help with this too.

Don't worry just keep thinking voting for 'smaller government" doesn't just lead to more monopoly concentration, and more anti workers laws, that crack down on collective bargaining rights, prevent class action suits against big firms after mass fraud.

Lol if you think I support Silicon Valley and their anti-competitive concentration practices. But then again, I'm an actual progressive that puts workers and communities over corporate profits and wealth consolidation for execs and shareholders.

Totally, which is why the only one willing to speak to investigators about the matter, knowing telling a lie is a criminal offense, is the accuser weird.

Uh Silicon Valley is a haven for libertarian sociopaths. If by "progressive" you mean they embrace diversity if it's from the same social class and support liberal culture norms sure, but that's it.

Meanwhile, Mexico, London, South Africa, and many parts in India and Pakistan, are facing water shortages. So don't celebrate quite yet...
