It’s easy to see that many prefer to attribute the movement of production to cheap labor nations to everything but cheap labor. But this move has been going on since the 1950s before there were any environmental laws to speak of, and there was no EPA. When a firm can cut its labor cost to less than 5% of what it is in the US, then export back to the US with little or no tariff, the savings are immense for any operation with significant labor costs. The removal of tariffs is the major factor in all of this.
I don’t have to call a Chamber of Commerce. Stories of potential new plants become news as soon as a recruitment prospect is identified. Again, the story is all the existing plants standing empty, not all the new plants which can’t be built due to red tape.
And all those things you mention, businesses must still deal with at the warehouse, distribution and retail level. Producing overseas does not eliminate product liability law suits.
Lol, and you are another who insists that other commenters prove your assertions for you. Why don’t you provide specific examples of all the plants you claim cannot be built due to red tape.
You don't have to prove my assertions, just your own.
So far you've established your ignorance on zoning, building, environmental and regulatory law in America.
Why not double down? Opinion's as good as fact.
