RE: where were your pants made?
a textile story close to home:
my hawaiian grandmother and one of my aunts worked at a small sporting goods manufacturing plant-- they sewed bowling bags and golf bags.
with the current trend of outsourcing, the company(kent sporting goods) decided to move this operation to china. whenever they did, they presented all the employees there(this is a tiny lil ohio town) with notices that said:
you can keep your jobs if you move to china(at your own expense) and accept a salary in-line with those of the native workers.
my grandmother had been at this job over 20 years, now. did they actually expect any of these people to move?
