Clothing Manufacturing? That was gone years ago see India, pakistan, China, Thailand.
Appliance repair revenue down? No, the Mfg reduced their warranties to mainly 1 full year. The actual loss would be 10% but more people are fixing what they have versus buying new. Check appliance sales from the top 10 over the past 5 years.
Thank you MSNBC for your rear reporting.
More proof that you can't believe everything you read. I don't know anyone who has the money to purcase high dollar items without using charge cards. Things are cheaply made today. I've been wanting to buy a new sewing machine (approx $400) but the guy who services my machine told me that they are all made of plastic and they don't last. He suggested I just keep mine as it is made of metal.
Slar panels, pilates, For Profit Colleges, Hot Sauce and Generic Drugs.
I dont know about the rest of the readers and the solar panels is actually inaccurate becuse they have been heavily goverment subsidized while still losing money.But can you imagine anyone even posting these industries as credible profit oppurtunities for the American Public. I mean come on is this what we have come down too.
Drugs, hotsauce,polates, Soar Panels and For Profit Colleges (hint over a trillion dollars in non paid student loans)
Sounds more like a Saturday Night Live Skit
Domestic outsourcing is just that- giving jobs here to illegal immigrants. Apart from being inferior quality, it is also illegal, although many people couldn't care less who it hurts, as they care more about getting it done cheap rather than right.
Where are the real jobs ? This was clearly put together by someone who has never known honest labor. Trends and fads ? That is our future ? Pathetic attempt at creating news.....nothing to see here.
STOP SENDING OUR JOBS TO OTHER COUNTRIES TO MAKE AT A LOWER PAY TO MANY FACTORIES IN THE STATES THAT CAN BE RESTORED TO GIVE PEOPLE JOBS SENDING OUR JOBS OVERSEAS TO SAVE MONEY FOR PEOPLE TO LOSE THERE JOBS IS NOT THE AMERICIAN WAY TAKE CARE OF HOME FIRST REBUILD HERE WERE WE LIVE BIG COMPANIES WORRY ABOUT THERE POCKETS NOT ABOUT THE WORKING CLASS
Products aren't made in the US like the used to. Nothing lasts and the ones that do when they break are cheaper to buy than to repair. It is not that us consumers prefer to go buy over repairing, it is simply the customer of replacement is cheaper than repairing. I have a Nikon S8000 which I paid over 250 for it at Costco and now it is not working (over 3 yrs old) My Dad bought yesterday at Costco an S6300 I believe which has the same 10x zoom, but his is 16mp where mine is 14mp. He paid 120 plus taxes. How much do you think the eval will cost me on my Nikon?
I have a Sony Handy Cam that needs repair and a Canon All in one printer/scanner fax. To buy a new all in printer now a days it's 49.99 plus taxes regardless if it's HP, or Canon. Including shipping and repair evaluation, Do we all think it will be 25.00 to make the repair worth my while?
What is worse is that be dumping items that could have been repaired we are creating a lot of landfill issues and having a worse environmental impact that we can ever imagine.
