The uniform thread rolls on. Someone said that our uniforms are "Made in the
USA" and they probably are by US workers; but the label doesn't ensure that is
true. Read a news clip from this morning's ABC News Online:
"ABCNEWS Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross has found that legal loopholes
allow foreign workers to be shipped in to face conditions that few Americans
Most of the workers are 'young women from China who have been promised by
recruiters that they are going to good jobs in America,' Ross reported.
'Instead many find themselves kept behind barbed wire, in rat-infested
labor camps [on Saipan], and put to work in huge Chinese and Korean-owned
garment factories often under sweatshop conditions making clothes for the
American market,' he said.
The clothes can legally be labeled 'Made in the USA.' "
I hope the National Supply Division knows where and how our uniform items are
actually fabricated. Other upstanding companies have been fooled by
