Here’s Why Any Politician Who Promises to ‘Bring Back Jobs From China’ Is Lying

What’s going on? 

Foxconn, a major contractor for Apple that has an infamous history of reportedly overworking and abusing employees, is cutting 10,000 jobs to make way for automation.

Glenn’s take: 

A company that thinks little of their employees committing suicide is going the cheaper route by switching to robots. You should never believe politicians who vow to “bring back jobs” that were outsourced to China because those jobs are rapidly being overtaken by automation. They won’t exist anymore.

“When China is automating and getting rid of human laborers, something that is cheap and meaningless to them, you can guarantee that those kinds of jobs are not coming back to America,” Glenn said.

GLENN: Thank you so much for tuning in today. Did you see this, Stu?

You want to talk about, I'm going to bring these jobs back from China and why that's a lie. And anyone -- any politician, left or right, who says we're losing jobs to China, I want you to listen to this story.

Foxconn. You know what Foxconn is, right?

STU: Yeah, they're the big sort of manufacturer. A lot of I Phones. And, you know, they're famous for having tough conditions in China.

GLENN: Suicides.

STU: Yeah, suicides.

STU: Suicides in their factories.

GLENN: Their factories are like slave camps. Your i Phone, I think, it's being built by a slave.

And what they do is you get -- congratulations, you're out of the rice patty. You can come in and get a job at Foxconn. But you have to live where you work, in these horrible conditions. You eat where you work. You never leave.

People -- they've had to put fencing all around the -- the top of the roof because people keep throwing themselves off of the roof. I mean, it's horrible.

Foxconn is planning to slash more than 10,000 jobs, as a part of the company's aggressive efforts to increase the use of automation.

When China is automating and getting rid of human laborers, something that is cheap and meaningless to them, you can guarantee that those kinds of jobs are not coming back to America.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"
