I remember back in the early 90's when a dollar store opened up in the mall that I was working at. It was amazing to buy everything for $1 at the time, filling our baskets to the brim with cheap products from overseas. However, many of us didn't know that it was quietly sucking away all our manufacturing jobs here. We became conditioned to cheaper products, including clothing, appliances and electronics.
However, we're now caught in a trap. As our wages have become substantially lower and unemployment has increased, we can no longer afford "made in America" as the prices will have to reflect higher wages paid to Americans. So, we have to settle for products made in foreign countries for 50 cents an hour while the corporations have exceeded their expectations of wealth.
