After seeing so many Manufacturing Companies ship jobs oveseas because of corperate greed is it any wonder youth stay away from the field like the plague? Americans are our own worst enemy when it comes to the economy. We shop at Walmart instead of supportiing our local hardware or grocery store and we think middle class wages is the root of all evil.

The beginnings of the American labor movement
In the early years of the republic, efforts by tradesmen to create better conditions by refusing to work and trying to prevent others from working were considered criminal offenses. Journeymen boot-makers and shoe-makers were put on trial in Philadelphia in 1806 and convicted of criminal conspiracy. This set the standard attitude towards organized work disruptions until 1842, when the principle of criminal conspiracy was rejected by the Supreme Court of Massachusetts.
The New York Workingmen's Party lasted only a short time, formed in 1829 and disappearing in 1830. However, it publicized a new goal, the reduction of daily time of labor to ten hours. Since the work week was still six days, this radical demand was for no more than sixty hours of work a week
I'm not sure how to get the message to the guys in OK, but I know Case-New Holland factory in Wichita, Kansas is hiring. It's not too far of a relocation if the opportunity fits for the Merc guys.
If anyone has contact with Merc HR or is going to the job fair you might want to mention this. Unfortuantely, I don't know how to get the word to those guys.
