Made In America…… Not Anymore….

14 Jul

So Ralph Lauren is under a lot of scrutiny for the USA teams uniforms. Mr. Lauren has a contractual agreement to create the uniforms for the USOC until 2020. The outfits of course are full of patriotic pride until you see the label “Made In China“….. The label has created so much controversy amongst Congress and Americans alike. At a time when employment is at an all time low many feel that Ralph Lauren could have had the outfits created here instead of out sourcing to China. That could have easily created a few jobs in the USA. Not to mention the overall pride of being made in the US of A….. Ralph Lauren released a statement that all future USOC uniforms will be made in America. He also stated “Ralph Lauren promises to lead the conversation within our industry and our government to address the issue to increase manufacturing in the United States”…. With so much out sourcing there are very few things created in USA.

I would like to hear your comments on this.. Do you think it is an issue that the uniforms were made in China or is the whole argument trivial? Please weigh in loves!!
