I get the idea of wanting to bring manufacturing jobs back to America. People should want Americans to be employed and working, but at the same time Americans would be unable to afford anything made in their own country. Most Americans are poor and struggle to afford even cheap imported products. How tf would they get buy if everything costs 1/3 more because it says “made in America” on it? Even if we raised the minimum wage to $15/h that would still leave so many people absolutely knackered. The minimum wage is supposed to be something like $22/h if wages kept up with inflation and productivity.
The day for America to compete with China in a manufacturing sense is over. Its just never going to happen given the work standards and pay demanded by American workers. A developed nation cannot compete with a nation who essentially gives 0 shits about it’s working class.
Stop trying to make shit more expensive because your feelings want a “made in America sticker” slapped on everything you buy.
