John Florez agrees with Robert Reich who said, "Manufacturing is coming back to America. As wages rise in China and decline in the United States … more stuff is being made here" ("How about schools for new jobs," Aug. 25). It should be noted that this tacit admission of how manufacturing wages are at unjustified levels is the result of the Wagner Act of 1935, which granted unbalanced union power. The act itself was based on specious use of the Commerce Clause of the Constitution resulting in inexorable wage increases over many years.
It is hard to imagine a more clearly linked chain of events leading from the initial twisting of the founding fathers intent to our present unemployment woes. The law of unintended consequences of government meddling in commerce should be apparent and restraint, not increasing government action, the desired course.
