You cannot just change the Law of Supply and Demand when it comes to Labor just becuase you do not like the social consequences of that law.
Globalization means the uneducated are going to lose and will not be able to achieve a middle class lifestyle as easily as earlier generations did. "Average is Over". Simple fact that you, your "progressive" economics and bleeding heart cannot change.

and meanwhile the left continues to demand the "rich" pay their fair share
When is eneough enough for these people?
The Top 10 Percent of Earners Paid 70 Percent of Federal Income Taxes
Top earners are the target for new tax increases, but the U.S. tax system is already highly progressive. The top 1 percent of income earners paid 38 percent of all federal income taxes in 2008, while the bottom 50 percent paid only 3 percent. Forty-nine percent of U.S. households paid no federal income tax at all.
Things CAN and SHOULD change. And the people living here in America, should exert as much influence politically and legally as they could ever muster.
