Perhaps Trump Will Have a Benefit for Workers

So one good thing that might happen under a President Trump is the fear of bad press for manufacturers thinking of off-shoring work. One thing that President Obama was NOT good at was using the bully pulpit to get people behind him.

If President Trump can shame companies to staying in the country, that is all to the good. Now, I know that the new President will take credit for things he didn't do, but if it works, I will be okay with that.

This will be particularly true if Congress can get behind Trump to change the laws that promote inversion for tax reasons.

Like I said, that would be good for workers, regardless of one's feelings for the next President.
