This is one of American company that shipping job to a cheaper labor country.Yet they want Americans to buy their product.
I was layoff the company that ship my entire department to China.After 8 years in service. No body care & Americans will tolerate this behavior until no more food in the table. As long as 40% of people still some kind of job like Walmart & media entertainment. Americans are easily can be entertained.Not knowing that they are being screwed by our government special interest & Corporate Americans.

It is time to increase the terrif on all imported products. There is talk of a flat tax in this country to replace the IRS. We should tax all imports at 25% and lower the taxes on business and individuals here. There would be a giant sucking sound of jobs leaving countries overseas and moving back to the USA. For all thoes "Free Traders" this system worked well in this country from our founding up unil the 1980' when terrifs were reduced. Today the average terrif is below 3%. Sure, the price of things we purchase would go up. Eventually, moving so much production overseas we will find our wages falling so what is cheap today will be expensive tomorrow.

Out of work americans can't afford crappy chinese furniture.Chinese workers making sweat shop/slave wages can't afford crappy chinese furniture.A business model based on putting your customer base out of work is destined to fail.
