Ever Wonder why stuff is cheaper from overseas?

Ever Wonder Why that overseas part is cheaper?

The Construction Site Hard Hat



The Dust and Particle Free Breathing Apparatus



OSHA Approved Scaffolding



And my all-time favorite..
The Lightweight Welders Mask



This may not be every reason but you should get the idea........

Hey, China has plenty of people. As I've said before the problem is our government gives favorable trade status to China and does not require them to meet the same safety standards as one has to meet if located in the USA. Want this to change, write your congressman.

Most o the rest of the world dos not have 1/3 of the safety and health standards as we do and 5 times the carbon foot print or what ever the Lib's call there massive pollution and guess what THEY DON'T CARE!!!!!!!!. If you have been to other countries just look around it won't take long and when your back in the U.S you will kiss the ground.

I work...

I work in a chemical plant. Lots of training and OSHA EPA involved.

We recently got into a big argument at work about whether or not China had lost 10,000 miners one year. Look it up. They did. :shock:

Edit: I had an extra 0 in that number. ops:

Where's my beer and that half inch wrench?

If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers.
