By having these production jobs made off shore, foreign workers do not have to pay USA taxes and USA corporations do not have to match their taxes. USA has the highest unemployment rate in history. This took decades to end up where we are at today in this economy.
Sewing has been taken out of public schools across the country and educational programs have been cut. America needs skilled labor to have these kind of jobs brought back. The USA home sewer has the power to send a message to garment companies by creating a garment a month at home. That will be one less sale the garment companies would have received. It may not seem like much, but every little bit helps. For all the quilts that home sewers make, adding a garment a month to their genre of sewing shows the concern, power, and skill level in the USA.
Having each country produce their own necessities again in these type of production jobs will help rebuild each country's economy.
