Don’t Look for the Union Label … U.S. Border Patrol Uniforms Made in Mexico


Look for the Union Mexico label …

From CNS News comes the following bad joke, the border patrol agents that prevent Mexicans from coming into the United States are made in, wait for it, wait for it … MEXICO. You just can’t make this stuff up.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has granted uniform contracts to VF Imagewear, Inc., an apparel company that relies on manufacturing sites in Mexico for a “significant percentage” of its occupational garments.

The latest contract with the company was awarded on Dec. 20, 2012, to make “uniform and insignia items” for the CBP at an estimated cost of $6,157,997.57, and a ceiling of $8 million.

The CBP, which is responsible for protecting America’s borders, told that items from VF Imagewear, a subsidiary of VF Corporation, are manufactured in a number of locations, “including Mexico.”

      We should not be surprised to find this to be the case. Most clothing made for sale in the USA is not made here. Few clothing manufacturers remain in the country. Labor costs are much cheaper in 3rd world countries.

      Thanks to the Federal Government and unions the entire clothing industry from farming and ranching, to manufacturing has been lost.

      Whenever government gets involved in the market, followed by unions and their work rules, that segment soon reaches the position of too much cost to compete.

      This country can no longer sustain itself without calling on businesses in other countries to supply services and finished goods. This is a very dangerous position from the standpoint of national security.

      The jobs lost run into the millions.
