See, Saw, Marjorie Daw

See, saw, U.S. jobs went offshore,
Margie shall have no task master.
She shall get not a penny in pay,
'Cause Chinese work so much faster.

China - factory workers

Flim, flam, George didn't give a damn,
That Jimmy can't work under NAFTA.
He cannot say why his job went away,
Big Business lived happily ever after.

Obama says he'll make a difference.
Protect our jobs; end indifference.
Globalization has been oversold.
The People count; not just the gold.

William's Whimsical Words:

It is easy to be sanguine about outsourcing, until it costs you your job.
