multinationals outsource production to avoid employee protection laws, fair wage laws, and environmental protection laws, then put Americans out of work. Meantime, their multinational US BASED CEOs make 300 to 400 times the salary of line workers. Disgusting.

I have 2 plates made by Syracuse China that were made for a function held in honor of President John F. Kennedy. They are deep blue with gold trim and the presidential seal made with gold in the middle. I have only two but our family has others. I am very interested to find out more about these plates and I was wondering if there is anyone out there that can help me. After reading the article about Syracuse Chine closing it's doors i don't know where to turn to. My e-mail address is [email protected] if anyone can help. Thank you.
