Are you willing to pay for USA products?

I bought a new couch today that is high quality and 100% made in the USA. It's a Stickley, if you know the brand. They pay their workers well with full benefits. I could have bought a similar "looking" couch from Nebraska Furniture Mart for about 1/3 the price, but they sell crap.

There's also a clothing store in the KC area that sells jeans that are 100% USA made. The workers who fabricate the jeans from start to finish are well paid with full benefits. A pair costs $200.

Walmart recently said they're moving back to the Made in the USA when possible. That will be a rough road.

The question is: Do you support workers in the USA, or do you take advantage of cheap Asian labor?

If the jeans are $200, then cheap Asian labor.

A lot of people say they will, just like a lot of people say that they despise illegal immigration, but they are perfectly fine reaping the benefits from those systems.

Your voting options are rather extreme for this issue. I would buy American if I could, but seeing that I make about $100 a week (I'm a college student). I will probably have to rely on imported products for the immediate future.

You have obviously never tried on the stunningly flattering yet utterly comfortable Alberto brand jeans.

When someone lives paycheck to paycheck and is struggling its hard to ask them to pay for something thats way more expensive! It just dont work like that and it never will.

LIke what was said up above people talk shit about i immagrants getting jobs, but like my neighbor who is a labor contracter told me, they have to do the job because americans wont do it! Its just not gonna happen.
