Article 1: Report: U.S. lost 1.5M jobs to China from 1989-2003 – Jan. 11, 2005

Article 2: Taipei Times – archives

The second article discusses the auto industry — like many articles this one states that US wages are “up to 25 times higher” than in China. While this article isn't an in-depth analysis, it unfortunately perpetuates the idea that wages are the only thing that matters.
