I gleaned the following information while watching CBS Sunday Morning today:
As recently as 1997, 41% of all the clothing purchased in the Uunited States was actually made here in the US. Today, only 2% of all the clothing puchased here is made here.
It costs roughly 75% more to make a garment in the US.
A fine polo shirt that costs 30 bucks to make here goes for $65 wholesale and is marked up to $155 for retail sale.
That same shirt might be made elsewhere for seven bucks or less. You do the math.
It's not a plesant picture.
