The sad part of this "free trade agreement" is that labor costs have very little to do with the price of the Chinese imports. We run a small plastics molding company that was doing very well before the advent of Chinese imports.What seems strange to me is it seems a lot of foreign companies send their stuff to the US to be assembled like Japanese cars and lawn equipment, heck even the Germans Stihl are assembled here. But it seems like the US companies are sending all of our work to China and Mexico. Heck, even the "good ol American" Briggs closed a plant in the US and sent it to China. What makes me sick is that all these USA companies made all their money off of our fathers and grandfathers labor then booted us out and sent the labor to China, and oh yea, they want to have a price increase even though they are getting it assembled for just almost slave labor, so they can give themselves another bonus.
Yes, they were. I knew that once MTD purchased them, that was it. Their mowers are just yellow MTD's. That's how business is done nowadays. Don't bother competing. Just, buy the competition.:dizzy:that sucks, they have ruined the cub name which long ago was an american icon
