From what is showing up on the Walmart shelves are store brand only, its
anybody's guess where their products come from. They have forgone the use
of brand names products now in favor of low end knock offs.Regardless of machinery and automation, Americans can still build it better.
The problem of mechanization is that quality and accuracy is engineered out by
the use of machines. For mass production you have to expand tolerances and
quality and cut value to offset the cost of machines. Quality is in the eye and
skills of the human worker. For generations big business and government have
condemned the workers as unskilled and undesirable working conditions, but we
have proven that Americans still build it better.Its the people who
build it better, its the people who are the craftsmen, its the people who enable
prosperity and economic growth of a business.Robots do create a lot
of jobs to verify the machines accuracy so saying machines are cheaper is

or 10 million, yet only creating 100 or so jobs. The days of using a lot of
labor to manufacture in America are over. New jobs will also not pay the money
that manufacturing jobs once paid, either. It's a nice idea to build sales
More stuff will be made in America when it's not competing with cheap stuff
made in third world nations where you can pay your workers jack squat. If
Walmart wants to identify the problem they should hold up a mirror.
