Future of the U.S. Economy?

I had to read this dismaying story twice about the manufacture of iPhones in China.  The question isn’t whether American companies have an “obligation” to support American workers.  Rather, how long do American businesses expect people to buy their products with minimum wage paychecks from a fast food restaurant job?

I don’t begrudge China its success in turning into an industrial powerhouse.  What is distressing, however, is the inability or lack of interest in keeping up with the times.
