44. It could benefit Americans
Sat Mar 5, 2016, 11:36 AM
Mar 2016

One thing where is a business that could not pay labor costs can exist at this end - say you design something, like a line of dishes or the like. But you can't afford a factory in the US. You can afford Chinese/Indian labor. Therefore that business exists here in the US and eventually employs people where it would not otherwise.

I recall being in Australia and they were very wise there - the labels did not just say "Made in China" like ours do, but "Designed in Australia/Made in China"

All in all this issue is not so black and white and cut and dried as job for job.

Yes, it has benefited corporations in many parts of our country. djean111 Mar 2016 #1
