I'm getting quite tired of this "the population is too big" fallacy. It's almost as bad as global warming, which isn't surprising since both of these ideas stem from the same environmentalist excrement.
"I'm getting quite tired of this 'evolution driven by natural selection' fallacy. It's almost as bad as the Big Bang 'theory', which isn't surprising since both of these ideas stem from the same God-hating atheist excrement."
Based on what I know, the problems here with being "overpayed" and jobs going oversees has a lot to do with the fact that this nation has the highest business taxes in the world, and the fact that our worker unions are like parasites that suck the blood (money) out of American companies. Businesses contract workers oversees so they can avoid the high costs of having workers in the U.S., from the high taxes and other gov regulations on business. In addition, their workers wont be part of any unions. It's a win win for business since they can avoid all the hassles, but it bites Americans in the ass. One solution would be to simply deregulate and lower taxes on our businesses so they wont have the strong incentive to ship jobs oversees. However, this wont solve the monstrous union problem. Companies like GM would STILL be paying their assembly line workers $80 an hour (over twice what other auto makers have to pay their workers) because of the parasitic unions and their contracts.
If this is all else there is to it, then I'm not inclined to agree with your argument. Why do foreign companies, especially car companies, have plants and employ workers in the United States, then? Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai, BMW, etc.

They didn't sign atrocious contracts with labor unions decades ago.

Well, we could continue to bail out the Big 3, or let them die or adapt.
Precisely the problem. When these companies aren't allowed to fail, then the unions will continue to make their inordinate demands and suck the industry for all its worth. If they were allowed to fail, they would be FORCED to renegotiate their contracts and actually adopt something that makes sense (i.e., not paying their workers $80 and hour).
