As to Mexico lead production - isn't it cool that there is a force field around Mexico that prevents any environmental contamination from spreading outside their borders?
Who was implying that this was the case?
The fact is though they don't pay their workers much, and have very little regulations relating to the amount of lead particulates they put it the air, water and their employees...
American smelters can't compete on price alone, and the market over the last 20 years has borne that out..
It is what it is, I'm just sayin, it's not about one plant, or this industry specifically. even if we accepted Mexican standards on lead smelting (which takes more willful ignorance to the affects of lead than I'm willing to provide), the industry is going there for labor costs alone
