It is impossible to avoid noting that this change coincides very nicely with two other historical events. First, the rise of cost effective global shipping, which allowed corporations to outsource manufacturing, which, in turn, ultimately destroyed organized labor in America.

We didn't end up in this sorry state of affairs by accident.
