John MacDonalds column on March 25 was good on ideas but way off the mark on causes.
Blaming “progressive, democratic socialist mantra” as the cause of off-shoring our manufacturing, etc., is absurd. No Democrat told companies to leave our nation. Fat cat company owners were the ones who lobbied Congress, the Senate and a host of presidents to do it. The average CEO makes 300 plus times what the average salary is paid today. Anti-union, anti-workers rights companies that have politicians in their pockets are the ones to blame. And shame on us for sitting on our hands as it happened.
Sadly they will never be back. But they will continue to pay their membership fees at Mar-A-Largo and Bedminster country club.
