Here are two things that hinder the competitiveness of U.S. labor, and what the U.S. can do about it. First, we regulate the environmental impact, safety, and employment practices of our own manufacturing, but put no restrictions on imports from manufacturers outside the U.S. Regulating one business when its competition is unregulated regulates that business out of business.

Wylted

==Definitions== Minimum wage: The minimum wage will be defined as the minimum compensation a worker will receive (from his employer) for preforming different forms of labor.

Though,...
