I'm a little disappointed that my Levis jeans are made in Bangladesh, rather than California !
NO SANE BUSINESSMAN wants to stay in California these days. Taxes are too high, workforce too small, and government regulations too crazy.
yes cazy ... if "these days" means 22 years ago
Levi's closed Manufacturing in California in 2001
and stopped Manufacturing in Texas a 2003 ... moving all production offshore .
they used to have Manufacturing in Scotland too . ... so UK jeans
We're probably UK made ... Manufacturing in Scotland also closed by 2003
Capitalisms job is to make money , not make and save jobs locally .
The Levi's production force in California was largely , at the time of closure , immigrant Latina and immigrant Italian .
doing piece work ( at minimum wage )
... if you move the factory offshore ... you take the jobs to the potential immigrants , where wages are even cheaper .
