This is known as "unskilled labor", and the compensation should reflect that. No reason why a guy putting one small piece of a giant puzzle together should expect more pay than someone like me, who not only is expected to take the ENTIRE puzzle completely apart AND put it back together again, but also have the gray matter to understand WHY.

Exactly... we have literally chased away manufacturing jobs from our shores with high taxes and the absolutely out of control unions (what a waste of space).
