When I moved to Iowa I started waiting tables at a
semi fancy restaurant. Before I realized that it would
be easier to dry clean my shirts, I thought that I needed
an iron so that could press them.
So I went to a few second hand stores and found used
irons for anywhere between $8 and $13. I didn't have
much money at the time so I didn't get one.. The next
day I was in Kmart and found this five dollar iron.
I couldn't believe how cheap it was.. How could it be
that a used iron would cost more than a new one?
Well if you look at where this is made you will know..
You see first you ask for federal subsidies to protect
American jobs, you then lay off you entire American
manufacturing workforce.. Then you find a company in
China that employs children as part of their "education".
Then you lobby for most favored nations status for
China so that you can dump those products in your own
market, putting the other American manufacturers out
Its great for the company and bad for everybody else..
Do you want my $5 iron? I'd rather buy one used so I
don't have to support Westinghouse... Oh and you probably
wont find CBS news doing stories on Westinghouse's manufacturing
plants in China.. Nor will you find NBC news doing stories
on GE's opposition to the clean up of their dumped PCB's
in the Hudson River.
