I agree that it is not China that is stealing our jobs, but we give them that opportunity to take our jobs and become millionaires in the process.
The U.S. gives the lowest bidder (most times) the job, then, and this is IMPORTANT... The U.S. company does not follow up on the materials and process
of the product, no inspections really, they evidently just let them make it out of any material they have on hand. They use inferior metals, plastic,
etc., they are more than likely told by the U.S. company to do it as cheap as possible and they do just that. This is insanely stupid by our U.S.
companies to do this, but they do, day in and day out. It is nobody's fault but ours.
Almost everything that comes from China that is made of plastic smells really strong of chemicals, no telling what is in that stuff. Leather even
smells like chemicals. Clothes smell too.
The metal they use is like the cheapest 'pot metal' that one can imagine.
I bought a Harbor Freight (Cheap Chinese made store in the U.S.) outdoor bench ($49.95) and painted it, then put it together, my wife then noticed
that one side of the bench's armrest was slightly warped, I placed the armrest on my knee as to try and bend it, almost as a joke. It snapped in half!
I assumed it was aluminum, but it was just really cheap "pot metal". It was more than 1 inch thick too! That is just one example out of millions.
If QUALITY CONTROL is not adhered to you will have this problem, all it takes is for the companys that use China is to have your quality control
guy(s) go over there and show them how you want it, then make sure they continue doing it.
After World War II Japan had a bad reputation of creating "junk" if anyone remembers that, and from what I read that U.S. companies showed them how
they wanted it done and now Japan created fine products, they are leaders in production.
I don't have anything to back that up but they definitely cleaned up their act after producing some of the crappiest products. Then, later on, it was
Taiwan, and on and on, all it takes is for us to take the matter in our own hands and make it what it is, a good product.
It's not them at all, you can't blame them for getting rich because we don't take the initiative to follow through and make sure the products are made
The bad thing is, there is a LOT of people now that don't even remember good U.S. craftsmanship, crap has been made for so long that some just don't
realize what quality can mean.
