Cheap Mowers Made in China.

Looking to Save a Few Bucks or Looking for a "Great Deal" on a Mower ?.... beware that you May be supporting the Rise of the World's Next Economic Super Power....Cheap Labour Can't be Beat...Especially by a Spoiled North American Population.

Stumper you made a great point on outsourcing....Many people don't realize that when the buy something made in a third-world country, they are just taking away jobs from their fellow American.

Yes, unfortunately as a consumer its hard to find something mass-produced that is actually made in America...I hope alot of people watch the show "Made in America" on the travel channel.

can't stop living but, i'm not going to be purchusing anything built out of north america ( i included canada ) if i can help it, its not the company owner that matters its where its made. if its availible from here i don't care if it cost twice as much I AM SUPPORTING THE AMERICAN/CANADIAN WORKERS.
not some slant eyes half a world away. wally world is a discrase to the american work force along with awhole bunch more. bissel took manufaturing to mexico, fridgidare, lifesavers is in canada now instead of holland mi. dodges, fords and gms come from all over the only real american built is the so called imports.
