Let Our People Work

Regarding "Computer Memories Fires 177 in Chatsworth" (July 13), the reporter tells a tale that has graced our newspapers all too often in the past few years.

The story said that our small community of Chatsworth has lost a computer memories company to Singapore.

Irwin Rubin, the company's chief executive, said: "We have to go where it's cheaper to do things." Was Rubin born in Singapore; did he receive his education in Singapore, will he sell his product to Singapore?

Of course not!

This common story is ruining our country. Great amounts of big business and commerce is (and has been) transferred to Japan and other foreign countries to beat the cost of labor.

When is the United States government going to awaken to the great threat of unionizing and allow our people to work?
