    MADE IN CHINA.
    Is cheaper than make in U.S.A.

    We complain about U.S. Olympic uniforms being made in China when we probably exported the material that China made the uniforms with because it is cheaper for China to make them than for U.S. corporations.

    I didn't hear anyone complaining about where the US Olympic uniforms come from.

    Why is it cheaper? I am sure Out of Control Union Contracts, and over bearing government Regulations have nothing to do with it right?

    lol

    May I suggest you expand your news sources. Senator Harry Reid suggested that all the uniforms be burned in a large pile.

    Being cheaper to produce there is not the same thing as the desire to have profit margins as high as humanly possible by wanting to cut as many corners as possible and a willingness to employ people who have no sorts of worker rights protections.

    That's why they go to china. Not because things are too hard and too expensive for them here.

    Come on man, you have to think like a greedy ass mother-fucking businessman who cares about profits over country.

    They should have been made in the US though, from material sourced in the US. These days, every bloody thing you buy is made in freaking China. Gets on your nerves after awhile.

    What "over-bearing regulations" are you yippen about? Do you mean the ones the corporations themselves enacted through their vast lobby power? You know the ones that only carry a meager fine(s), no imprisonment, etc. IF the reg's are even enforced to begin with? You mean those?:cool:

    As well, what "out of control union contracts" are you writing about? Facts show unions have given more in concession's than has any corporation. Union jobs only make up 11% of the nations workforce and has been dropping in membership thanks to the con party's love of corporations and hate of unions. That's not taking into account wage stagnation or worse, rising unemployment, etc. in the working classes VS record profits, bonuses, etc. for those corporations and those in the upper 10% (i.e. wall st, exec's, ceo's, etc, etc.....).

    If anything can be deduced from this data it is this country has too many fools in it like yourself.
