You load sixteen tons, what do you get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store
The chorus lyrics of Sixteen Tons came to mind as I reflected on the workers (those whose jobs haven't been sent off shore) in the US economy. Could the company store be the cozy relationship between corporations and government with credits and tax concessions.

Okay. So I didn't think it through very clearly, but there it is. Just saying that is what came to mind.
