ABC World News Tonight just had a story about the labels in the Olympic outfits for the USA team (including berets) showing everything was made in China. They reported if made in the good old USA, it might have been worth quite a tidy sum for US employees. No link yet on the ABC site.

So were the Australian ones. blink
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19578020


Probably find they all were.

The only thing anyone can really do, is look to buy product made in their own country only. Support your own small businesses, if it costs you a little extra in the short run, in the long run it saves you ( product will be better quality and it means keeping jobs in your own country ).

Not that we got to choose where the olympic outfits were made, and even buying things made in our own Countrys prob wont be easy now, whatever they are.

It is a disgrace though, every country should of had these things made in their own country. But you will prob find only some European Countrys ( Germany etc ) still have the pride to do that.

Will be interesting to see where Austs were made, but you can near back It in the cheapest slave labour country the govt here could find.

Even if you are just retired instead of simply retarded, you should give a fuck, because someone younger has to work in order for you to get your fucking pension. Preferably they should also not have to start with tens of trillions in debt and unfunded liabilities, but it's kinda too late for that, right?

It's OK with me.

I'd rather buy from the chinks than a lazy-ass greedy communist American union.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19550911


And even those product that says 'proudly made in USA' are likely made by illegal mexican or viet nam immigrants anyways. I'd rather trust a country with homogenous population and good track record in the industry.

China is world's factory so we should just face it. if you pay proper price and know what to spec you will receive top notch product. When quality is concerned I would trust them more than mexico or vietnam (nothing against Mexico or Nam for sure).

27,000 jobs lost In Aust In JUNE ALONE - we have not even seen this ball start rolling yet. And the cheap overseas slave labour is what started it all to begin with.

The rise in the jobless rate from 5.1 per cent in the previous month came as a total 27,000 jobs were lost in the month, according to Australian Bureau of Statistics data released on Thursday.

"By the standards of the world we continue to have a low unemployment rate," Ms Gillard told reporters in Townsville.

Those uniforms are actually not 100% Made in China. The shoes and shirts are Made in China. The jackets are Made in Italy. The pants are also Made in Italy.

Ralph Lauren has always had his Purple Label(Top of the Line Lauren) made in Italy for years.

Lauren never has his shit made in China. If you got Lauren that is made in China; then you got a counterfeit.

The response by the Americans here are classic; They freak out on any bullshit you feed them, without knowing the whole (true)story. They don't really care about the details or what really is the truth, as long as they can slam some other county like china, and wave their flag while doing it.

I'm no great admirer of the Yanks but I really cannot believe this.
Surely the US has a clothing factory somewhere.
 Quoting: omar


Probably not. When I was a child (eons ago), a friend's father owned a woman's clothing factory. People had stable jobs, he employed mostly women, and they liked their work. They also made a living wage. Now we buy from countries that "employ" children. What a disgrace.

London, August 22: Cheap clothes made in China have been found to contain high levels of a potentially dangerous chemical.

Formaldehyde is used to protect clothes that have to be shipped great distances against mildew.

However, long-term exposure to high levels can be harmful, causing problems ranging from minor skin rashes to some types of cancer.

Free-Trade Agreements require that Chinese companies be allowed to bid, and that the lowest bid be accepted. Since Chinese companies use virtual (and actual) slave-labor, they inevitably get these contracts.
