someone paying 50 cents an hour, no environmental controls and no labor laws. Much of China's steel industry was still 19th century technology so modernizing their mills eliminated a lot of jobs. The engineer that worked on building our EAF built one in China before ours. He said first of all they built a new coal fired power plant (using our coal no doubt) nearby to supply electricity. They have no pollution controls like ours, he said the area around the steel mill is covered in red dust and the workers live in tin shacks next to the plant. He talked about street vendors having chickens hanging out in the filth at the mill and kids playing in the streets where heavy equipment was operating. Why is it we are trading with communist China but have punished the people in Cuba for 50 years? Now we have another Democratic president pushing for NAFTA on steroids.
