    The people in the country which looses the industry and essentially the people who get the industry to an extent.

    I don't follow.

    When you lose industry from your nation jobs go, when these countires get industry it will be because they have less working rights and will get paid less.

    In short, it's a race to the bottom--as those on top consolidate their gains.

    I don't see your point. We have already seen that Toyota Motor is part of this globalization process and it pays its workers the same that GM does and it gives its workers better health care options. The workers have gotten more from globalization in this case.

    But, you are ignoring the rights of the business owners. Why can't they run their businesses as they see fit? Let's suppose that you and I own lawn maintenance companies and I am able to perform the same services that you can, but I pay my employees more than you pay yours. I pay my guys $10.hr and you pay them $7.hr -- both above min. wage. Should you be forced to pay your employees more than you are now, just so they can make the same amount mine are? Would that screw you over? What if you couldn't keep all your employees on board after the mandated raise? Does that screw over some of them?

    Remember that most states in the US are at-will states, so the employee has just as many rights as the employer. But, we have to remember that those rights don't entitle them to peoperty they otherwise wouldn't be entitled to. Workers aren't entitled to extra money any more than employers are entitled to more work from the employee without paying for it.

    Taking away business owner rights paves the way for the government to take ALL ownership rights -- your house or your car or your computer are treated just like those businesses. Plus, if you take away the business owner's ability to make money running his business, he may do away with it altogether, which would leave everyone without a job.
