They are still out there but people want cheap items and they want them now. If you want quality you need to search for it.Have we gone so far now that you cannot find the products. Entire industries have now been wiped out and will not be able to return because nobody here knows the process well enough to simply bring it back. Free trade wouldn't be an issue if it were truly "Fair Trade" but it's not and it isn't going to be.
To those that say simply suck it up and it's a global economy....just remember that when you complain about the 47% not paying federal taxes or asking for more government services (welfare, healthcare, etc). It all stems from the wage loss of previous decades that continues to drive us ALL down, and if you think you're immune to it, you would be wrong. When the general wage base goes down, it effects you and most of you don't even realize it.
As Zebo says....cheap is more expensive.
People are lazy and don't think long term so when their wages go down they try to blame others when it started right with them.
