The US passed the Jones Act to insure that travel between US coastal ports would not be in the hands of foreign companies.
Container ships have tiny crews. so this is not about the sailor's pay any longer.

that`s sort of backfiring since some of these port are now buying fuel from other countries to cut cost. note the U.S. is not even manufactoring alot of ships so there have been delays.
