You know d&^% well they saved a ton on labor, but did they pass that on to you? Heck no they just compounded the profit by charging the same or higher price as the U.S made item.

That will balance out once all the workers in this country are making 5.00 per day & all the bigshots are billionaires, then they will have to lower prices We need to get rid of NAFTA & all the other "free trade" agreements that have done nothing but gut this country & turn the US into a 3d world country flooded with cheap, throwaway foreign junk. Problem is, greed just gets worse & is never satisfied so with stockholders clamoring for ever increased profits that ain't going to happen. There are enough places in the world with starving people to exploit, cheap labor isn't going away. Wonder how these geniuses figure our government is going to keep running, people making 5.00 per day don't pay taxes.
