More people are unemployed and they cannot buy the products and our economy is hurting from it. It looks good when a product is cheaper it attracts more customers but another thing is the quality. If products are created here they may be created with more quality as employees will actually spend more time as they will take pride in creating them as their friends and family will use them. When people create them foreign they do not know who’s going to use them and their getting paid near nothing.
