And I would like to respond to you.
You know many of the American companies that you used to get those repairable products from are the ones who are now having these products made in China. There are several reasons that they get them made in China, with a couple of the major ones being:-
1. Customers demand lower priced products
2. Many people in the US don't want to do the type of work involved in standing on a production line.
Go ask them why they don't have large production lines to make your repairable toaster anymore.
Do you know that a large proportion of the manufacturing done in China is as a result of foreign investment. Meaning that much of what comes out of China is actually a result of money coming in from such places as the US.
So you do need to be a little careful about pointing the finger. You don't honestly believe someone like walmart is buying their goods from the top shelf do you?? Of course not, they are buying the cheapest they possibly can to maximise their profit. And if that means you having to buy more toasters, well then thats more sales isn't it.
Shop at a place that sells better quality and you will get a better toaster. It will cost you more though.
So when you get angry at all these outsourced jobs, maybe you should sit back and determine who it is you should be angry at.
