The entrance of cheaper products, manufactured overseas by foreign labor, imposed the closure of US manufactures, resulted in discharging the working force of these local manufactures, and eventually eliminated what was known as the blue collar jobs “Is Wal-Mart Good for America.” In addition, technology had introduced new methods of production that do the job that once required a human force to do it.
