MYP, in response to your provided link:
I’m a proponent of both minimum wage annually updated to keep abreast with the U.S. dollar’s inflation and the earned income tax credit.

Their concepts are not opposed to each other; they’re both beneficial to our nation’s economy. I advocate we have it all.

Respectfully, Supposn

The problem is and always will be becoming Global. I myself am against this move and say we need to protect our own. To move to a global economy will destroy many of those industrial countries and we have already seen the effects.

We need to pull out and start making American again and letting others know we are only going to worry about our people and not the world in general.
Chris7375, refer to:
Reduce the trade deficit; increase GDP & median wage

Trade deficits are ALLWAYS economically detrimental to their nation.
