  •  Made in America labeling (1+ / 0-)

    is weaselly.  The items so labeled can come from anywhere in the western hemisphere.   The old (pre-NAFTA) claim was "Made in the USA" and it was accompanied by a union label, bug, or similar endorsement.  That meant we could buy without fear that a product had been made in a prison factory or in a shop with substandard pay and working conditions, aka, sweatshop --located in some America, somewhere.

    Someone should open a shop that gives us that old-timey, worker-supporting-worker assurance.
