Kristin asked for input on their problem. Obviously they'll have to work around it for now, but when you have weeds in your garden, do you work around them by cutting the tops off or do you go for the root? This problem should be solved at its root, and federal regulation created this problem.
You're right - tax breaks for companies that move jobs overseas where they only have to pay people a few dollars a day is a huge part of this problem. If those countries didn't have the majority of their people below the global poverty line, it wouldn't be as easy to exploit them as cheap labor. (This is at the root of Looney Labs decision not to take their business to China.)
