How would you feel if you were forced to give all your food and housing and savings to someone else who had less and watched those others get fat while your own family sat starving as you are also told that now that same family needs a job so you are forced to give up yours to help them out?
I was curious about the Schwinn, Huffy, Murray and other US bicycle manufacturers to see where they are built. It pissed me off to find that our own Government Courts ruled that that cheap Chinese imports were no material threat to American bicycle mfg's thusly putting thousands of workers out of jobs. These same bicycle mfgs provided jobs for suppliers, trucking & transportation, chain makers, bicycle shops, tire mfgs and more. This is what out sourcing for cheap labor has done to our country and our own Gov'ment and corporations have sold us out down the river.
All those so called "jobs creations" and "putting people to work" is true, it's just that they don't tell you the truth about where those jobs are and who is getting them and it's not on our soil or even Americans. So how do you feel now about giving a helping hand when it is actually the hand they want and not you.
Here is the link about the demise of American bicycle jobs and where they actually come from now, and these companies had helped defend and build America back up before and after the great wars. That's a fine thank you with a dagger in the heart of America isn't it!
