How, just how, do you get Aussies to work for next to no pay (which is what Chinese factories pay their workers), in order to make cheap goods, if the Aussies can be so much better off, with a much more pleasurable lifestyle, on social security?

If you check the yellow pages , you'll see that there's very few flag-makers in Australia . The ones in business are flat out. They make good quality flags...real flags , not throw away trash. Unemployment is at a low level in Australia , so I don't understand what point you're trying to make here?....maybe you read the headlines and actually believe them ?........(lol)

We get what we pay for though. I bought one of those Chinese flags, clamped it to the car roof and hit the road. Within 100 meters the flag simply blew off its stick. If I hadn't seen it flutter to the road in my rear-view mirror I would never have known.

I walked back and dodging traffic I retrieved it. The stick side of the flag had been sewn into a simple hem into which the stick was loosely slid, with absolutely no attempt made to secure it in place ... no staple, not even a drop of glue. The outcome I experienced was effectively guaranteed. There was no way to check for that before purchase, as it was sold in a blister pack.

So much for 'quality control'.

I hate all those crappy shops that sell garbage wrapped in plastic. The packet is better than the junk inside it.
