    Well not to mention that we get many of our goods from near sweat shops in Mexico that assemble things right across the border.
    The only way made in the U.S.A. is ever going to see a major rebound is if our workers start working for under a dollar an hour or the political climate for labor and unions in countries like China and India change.
