In my opinion, businesses went overseas because workers demanded higher wages and more benefits, or the workers would go on strike to obtain their demands. Soon, employers did not have enough income to pay workers the wages and benefits the workers demanded, plus buy needed materials to keep the companies productive.

As a result, many businesses moved overseas to poorer nations where people were glad to have a job. The companies did not have to pay out as much money and benefits so investors were able to get some profits out of the companies.

Other nations find goods made in the U.S. too expensive.
