It’s US retailers who farm out manufacturing to those countries and live off the poor and exploited. It’s just slavery but having the slaves n other countries. “…consumer sentiment in these markets is not to pay higher prices” is a lame statement. Let the consumer do wothout overpriced clothing where cost is only 10% of the price. The government allows that and should impose extra high taxes on companies importing clothing and other products and services so that it’ll not be worthwile to import. In that way US workers can get their jobs back working in the US sweatshops that were in Brooklyn, for example.

Americans, can we explain this as we are exporting our Southern States slavery carried over from ancient imperial Euro to this Asian people in developing countries so we can foreclosure any chances technologies can get advanced into these industries? How long we should waste our farmlands for these low slave waged fabric industries?

Why don’t we let our fashion designers advance our clothes making, repairing, and cleaning technologies on Internet distance to serve their fans and customers through Youtube (or BaiDu) with modern same day parcel delivery low fee services for garments? These will push a lot of new Fashion Corporations on Cyber space across all countries.

Bangladesh women have special talents on garments then they should not work like slaves by those ancient leftover European slavery cultures. We, modern people, can enable their talents to positions even higher than those mass media corporate exploited pop singers.

I’m American and I’m definitely willing to pay more for clothes that don’t have blood on them. I don’t have a lot of money, but from now on I’m going to buy clothes that are made in the USA. I’ll just buy a lot fewer of them. I did a search for “made in USA” on Amazon, and it came up with 602 results under women’s clothing. Not a huge selection, but I’ll be able to sleep at night…
