Keep your head buried in the sand stormbowler83, no it''s not just brunswick but any company that chooses to abandon American workers. If you can''t figure out that Americans losing jobs are a huge problem, then you are even more foolish than you appear to be.

Great answer to quit bowling, then the people employed at the local lanes will be out of jobs. Please think before you type.

I have used brunswick since 1990 when I got my first rhino.. Always been faithful, but its not so much the quality that pisses me off, its the way brunswick is going about it.. They are making balls for less $$  but the prices dont drop? SO whos making the profit here?  Also Taking away from American workers is BS .. But I guess Im a hypocrite because I still use their equiptment, BUT this is the reason I will be using multiple brands in my bag.. Buying off the internet and not with the pro shop is one thing, Losing American work so that Brunswick can make an extra buck is another when it all comes down to the economic part of it...

So what kind of cars do you guys drive? How many of them are 100% made in America? How many or made overseas or have foreign parts on them. Oh that's right almost all are either made overseas or have foreign parts. When once upon a time they were almost all made in the states. How about clothes? Look to see where your Levis are made not in America. If you really want  me to continue I could.
Yeah it sucks Brunswick moved. It sucks Americans lost jobs. Now that was a few years ago as well. I heard rumors a few years ago that another major company was looking at land close to where the Brunswick plant is. IF this is true and IF it does happen I wonder how many people will drop that family of equipment like they did Brunswick.

Let me explain it to you one more time real slow to see if you can comprehend it this time stormbowler83

There are many companies the are manufacturing bowling balls in the U.S.A. Brunswick chose to cease manufacturing at their Michigan plant which cost American workers their jobs. How many more jobs do you think Americans can stand to lose before the economy gets to a point it will be impossible to recover from?

All of the examples you provided are products in which we as Americans basically have no other option except to purchase foreign products, but and let me emphasize again bowling balls are NOT.


Why should you care? Let me explain it another way. See if you can follow along, when people lose good paying manufacturing jobs (VP''s, managers, engineers, technicians), then they don''t put their money in your bank, build that house that you build, buy that car you sell, go to that expensive hair salon where you work, etc..

Keep thinking about it maybe the light switch will come on Stormbowler83, but by the argument you have provided I seriously doubt it.

you hit the nail on the head , which I cant see how he doesnt understand.. When asked WHY dont we purchase EVERYTHING in America? Very simple, Not EVERYTHING is made here.. But the things that ARE made here should stay here..

Nobody said anything about what I said either.. What about Brunswick  making more money off doing this by cheap labor , and not even giving the Americans  who support their company a cut of the profits?  Nor really caring about anything but the almighty dollar..

Anyone?

The point is buy American every chance you can. Sure there are some products out there you can't find made in america but the more you buy American the more things will come back. The problem with this country is greed  got mine screw everybody else. there are only so many executive jobs out there I have nothing against people from other nations but if you think Brunswick or any company moved to another country to help those people your a fool it was to exploit them and put more money in the executives pocket.

You're talking situational ethics. Look it up.

It means you do the right thing when it's convenient, no more, no less.

Ethics are not situational. They are universal. The end NEVER justifies the means. NEVER.

Also, how come it's quite okay for union jobs (Big B workers in Muskegon were making on average $28/hr) and move them to plants in KY or UT where they make $10/hr. As long as it's here in the States that makes it alright?  Get lost, hypocrites!


LOL now maybe you could do some simple math and figure out how much Brunswick is TRULY making NOW!!!  lol they were doing just fine paying ppl 28 bucks an hr, now its down to 10?? Wow , i think they just tripled their profits.. That work out for you smart guy?

although i highly doubt laborers were paid 28/ hr  to pour a resin into a mold....
