This one is a lot better than the stamping plant video with the guys sitting IN THE PRESS.
The commentator on the pictures mentions "safety bandage" implying the operator should be wearing gloves. But anyone seen using gloves around a drill press, lathe, mill in the shop of a Machine Tool builder I worked at would have been reprimanded (dismissed after 1st warning). As for the chips on the floor, that's normal to see during the day as chips (i.e. "money") accumulated.
Many decry outsourcing in general but are happy to pay less for tools and parts (spark plugs included). Pretty hypocritical, IMO. I know some on this board vow to buy USA, but that's getting less and less possible to do.
Don't blame the corporations. They're in business to make money for their owners. If anything, blame Washington DC politicians for allowing the Chinese (and others) to tilt the playing field. There are virtually NO restrictions on how foreign companies can operate in the US but the reverse is not true.
How to fix it? For every roadblock that the Chinese put up for American businesses, do the same for them.
