It was bound to happen at some point. Labor costs were just too attractive in places like China so for years more and more "American" brands have been made overseas.
But eventually what goes around comes around. Eventually workers in China start demanding higher wages (the nerve!) and suddenly things aren't so cheap anymore.
Add to that the pain of having to plan orders well ahead because it takes so long to get anything and brands made in your own backyard become even more attractive.
We sorely need not just the jobs that "American made" represents, the added pride is a perk as well.
