Why do people complain about jobs going over seas but yet they buy products made from over seas?
Like Apple's iPhone/ iTouch which is designed here, but made in China. Or the clothes that people buy. A lot of them are made out side the U.S. Many products in Wal-mart are made over seas as well, yet people flock to Wal-mart everyday. To me it seems hypocritical that people verbally complain about what they physically support. Then they start complaining that its illegal immigrants that take our jobs, which might be true, but its only a small fraction of what big corporations do by manufacturing a lot of products over seas.

We don't have too much choice when it comes to buying products made overseas. What else is there? I can buy an American made car, but parts will come from China. I will only buy toys made in the US or maybe certain other parts of the world (other than China), but they are hard to find. Whatever I can possibly buy that... More

Probably because they're uneducated about stuff like this. Also, maybe they think, "So what if I buy something made in my country. It won't make a difference" Then when they buy something foreign little do they know they are making a difference, and not a good one.

Walmart is doing it's damnest to run small business out of business so that "you" the consumer has no choice BUT to shop at Walmart, and then they can charge you whatever price they want... More
