However what they will in all probability be getting is a mass produced imitation of what used to be a phenomenal product.
One of these days, the American worker is finally going to wake up. The "factory" production worker that is. They want to b!@#$ and moan about losing their jobs to over seas production, yet they didn't or don't want to help management get lean and mean to be competative in the marketplace. Forcing the companies to move or close up entirely in the end.
Make no mistake, Japan set the standard for production efficiency post WWII. They learned to make the production worker part of the management "team" thus fostering checks and balances that the employees took responsibility for and were PROUD of. All of a sudden, quality control for example had a direct impact on their income and they took it PERSONALLY. They became immersed in how to produce things more efficiently as well as at a higher quality.
People who think of the Asian manufacturing plants of today as the dirty sweat shops of yesterday, mass producing junk not fit for anything.... are sorely mistaken. Many, MANY of them are state of the art, with the newest technology and equipment where workers are provided housing, meals, laundry services, day care, exorcise areas etc.... that would EASILY put ISO 9000 factories here to shame.
The US better WAKE UP PDQ.... or we won't manufacture anything.
