I fully agree with what has happened in the US work force and I am a result of it, My company is the EMS whore of the industry and has out sourced 95% of our business to low cost regions but the fact remains that this is driven by the OEM's and competition. My choice 5 years ago was simple, get with the trend and move to China or take un-employment.

Now with the European RoHs (Restrictions on Hazardas Sunstances) we will also start to see more material like cadmium be removed from the market, thanks to Green but now alternatives will increase in value.

I will say that 2 out of the 3 manufactures were hack-shacks while the other seemed better in quality and offered manufacturing, but also innovation, modification, design and customization through whatever fedback and customer's specific requirements were given.
