well, they make everything else we use so it doesn't surprise me. Wish our folks in the US had some of that work.

We tey our best to buy socks made in the USA, sadly they have become harder and harder to find.
Interesting facts, that's a LOT of manufacturing :)

I'll tell you, I'm not surprised. So much! in America has been made in China. Its a bit dismaying...yet...the dollar stores are so popular. With me too. Affordable.

I agree with Mom...America needs to be making her own products and keeping those jobs here!
