Last month Converse declared bankruptcy. In March they
laid off all of there American and Mexican manufacturing
workforce. This is what happens when you ask fairly
paid American men an women to compete with 13 year old
children working for the sweatshops run by Nike and
So Converse All-Stars will now be manufactured in China.
The last American made shoe, now made in China, while
China holds American men and women hostage.. I don't
see GE, Nike, GM or any other Global capitalist taking
a position on the American service men and women currently
detained in China.. Might that be because their true
allegiance is to profits rather than the United States
and its workers?
Well, these are the last pair of American made converse
that I will ever own. These were made by fairly compensated
American workers. The new ones will be made by slave
labor in china, and even though they will now cost less
than $1 to make, they will still cost $32.00 in the
stores... yep that's right, the $32.00 that used to
support American working families will now go directly
to the corporate CEO's who now earn hundreds of times
what their lowest employees earn. Hell if I buy another
Converse product again in my life...
