@Melonlity -- that is all true and there are sites on the Internet dedicated to letting consumers know which companies are making products in the United States. Such sites are gaining in popularity and that means they are being used. It's hard to say a trend has developed, but it is encouraging to see some companies marketing the fact they sell products made by American labor.
One thing that is ironic is we've seen a number of foreign-owned auto companies, power tool makers and even some computer makers set up shop in the United States so they can save on shipping costs and tout the fact they are employing Americans.
Some argue that buying from one of those companies is somehow not as good as purchasing items from American-owned companies, but that's not the point. We in the United States should all be glad to see well paying jobs for Americans regardless of the nationalities of the companies that provide them.
