    Start sewing Clarky!
    If you can make quality clothes that Americans like AND can afford, you will be a rich man. Welcome to Capitalism.

    Btw….Where was that computer you’re typing on made?

    102 years ago, there was a tragedy known as the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, which killed 146 on March 25, 1911. The ages of the dead ranged from 14 to 43.
    Very similar conditions existed in New York City in 1911 as existed in Bangladesh in 2013, including children killed in the tragedies.
    The same type of people were to blame – the rich, greedy capitalists who exploited the average person. That’s why unions and regulation of businesses are necessary.

    On top of that, the part about “can afford” is another thing that was brought about by people with your kind of thinking.
    Once upon a time, the average American worker could afford to go into a car dealership every two or three years and afford to buy a new car. The average American could afford to buy his or her own house. The average American could afford to buy the things he or she wanted, and the products were made in America.
    Today, minimum wage hasn’t kept up with the cost of living, and what are considered “good” wages today aren’t even equal to minimum wages in other industrialized countries. Australia’s $15.96/hour minimum wage, even with the conversion to American dollars, is more than two times the minimum wage here in America.

    Americans can afford much more than we claim. We just prefer LOTS of cheap junk to a reasonable amount of quality clothing.

    Does anyone actually have a listing of clothing retailers who sell clothes MADE in the U.S.?
    Seriously, I would be interested in seeing it, and would patronize them.

    Hello Masterkrain,
    Thanks for giving me a reason to look. I bookmarked this site as a source to look for Made in the USA clothing.

    @ Ashburn Stadium – Eloquently and intelligently stated, neighbor. Thank you for your words and the quality of your tone.
    @ cdedward – nicely stated, neighbor. Thanks.
    @ conservgov – while I agree you are generally right, it does cost more to buy US made goods, what matters is the quality of the items and quality of life that improves for all of our neighbors when people are actively employed making wages that give them disposable income. We need to bring jobs back home.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Slight correction: Mimimum wage in Australia as valued in USD: $16.50.
    No recession there for about two decades, and health care was nationalised about four decades ago.

    Neither the conservative nor liberal are correct..
    What we need is balance….obviously this balance, fair play was not here in America nor in Bangadesh..
    The time has come to embarrass these wealthy capitalism AND the people who supposedly pay too low a price…but I question this…
    Capitalism is not “evil”.
    Greed , disrespect are…
    And, Conserve, my computer was “made” in Japan or China.
    Our house, a dump, (poor design) was made in America..
    Yours ?
    Whats the point…??
    We need to improve our education by a hundred-fold..

    @Respectful Troll

    NO
    What we need is retailers to actually listen to and respect their customers.
    We do have the ability to design the very best, I think and we should be doing this..
    If the people of India and Bangladesh can sew better, then so be it…
