PHNX - CHEAP Imported
Sorry, we don't have imported boards, and to be honest, we never did! You see, if we had our boards made in China we could sell them for less, but then what are the guys who work at our American wood manufacturer going to do? Or the guys who spray finish the boards? Or the guys who assemble them? Chinese-sourced products cost less because Chinese companies exist in a country with lower working and environmental standards, simple as that. And no, this is not about racism, but IS about human rights and the environment. Have you seen what the pollution is like in China? Click Here Or how workers are taken advantage of? Click Here. It's nice to pretend that buying cheaper imported goods has no repercussions, but it's just not true.
Are we against international trade? No, but if you have the choice to support local craftsmen and artisans selling high quality goods made in America, instead of encouraging environmental and human degradation overseas, why wouldn't you?
