That's a good point. My solution to this company would be that you have the companies producing the foreign goods pay a certification fee to have their plant reviewed and certified. Sure, that will add cost to that microwave oven made in China or Korea, but I'm not concerned about that. Companies that manufacture in America spend a considerable amount of money to meet environmental standards (that's one reason the jobs are moving overseas).Originally Posted by Rojo
I see no reason why it's not fair to make the Chineese or Mexican manufacturers do the same paperwork if they want to sell in the US. Of course, they'd probably have to pay more, because I'd want periodic, surprise audits to make sure they were legitimately conforming.
This certification would be entirely paid for by fees from the companies. It wouldn't cost the taxpayers a dime.
