Today I visited 2 small apparel and messenger bag companies based in Seattle. Both of these companies touted that all of their products were made in the USA, and both had factories in-house. I had a chance to peek into both the manufacturing facilities and saw that nearly all of the factory workers were Chinese! And not ABCs (American Born Chinese), they were Chinese folks who only spoke Cantonese.
I was unnerved by this discovery. Sure, those products are made in the US, but they aren’t made by Americans. Maybe these companies should re-label their goods to “MADE IN USA, WITH CHINESE HANDS”.
