I wonder how long the ripple effects from this will last....

Should have always been made here, and never ever outsourced to the commies. While I noticed the idiot who wrote the lame story on it, only talked about here, reality is that many are made overseas, and so they control the production, or lack thereof for most automakers.

Absolutely. Everything in the supply chain should've always been made here. The CEOs were/are only concerned with short-term profit.

Slave labor is where you find it.

I actually make pressure gauges that are used in the semiconductor industry. We are booked through the remainder of 2021 on gauges. It's nuts! One of the reasons chips don't get made here is due to how dangerous it is. The gasses that are used during the production are deadly. Nobody really mentions that though. We make the gauges in a clean room environment and they are electro-polished as well.

That explains a lot. Thanks.

Could you be more specific? I worked at three different facilities producing computer chips and circuit boards. TTI Testron, Sunshine Circuits and Reticon. I'm not aware of any environmental dangers. I'm not saying you're incorrect, I'm just not familiar with what phase of production you are referring to.

This article explains the side of production that we make gauges for. There are some very nasty gases used for this.

Actually the labor unions were the reason for outsourcing. It’s hard for some to accept but, it’s true.

I've edited content, as there are many pro-union members on the forum. To quote Bob Dylan; "Well, it's sundown on the union - And what's made in the U.S.A. - Sure was a good idea - 'Til greed got in the way."

The labor unions own certain politicians. Labor historically supports the Democrats, which, given their treatment by the Dems, defies all logic.

They help get Biden in office and when he jams it in their asses by immediately closing the Keystone pipeline, they're shocked.

The unions that represent Federal employees receive support. The rest... :(
