Saipan is a well known sweat shop for Walmart and manufactures that do business for Walmart. Outright fraud that they are allowed to claim the US name without US laws.

The unions are a doubled edge sword, no doubt about it. Fact remains that even with twice as many employees as it took to do the work the Big 3 still managed to make a lot of money in their heyday. Good paychecks fed a healthy economy for a lot of years.

Here is the Chinese waste gate next to a TiAL. They don't look too different until you get close. The Chinese unit is pot metal and plastic. Not even good plastic but really flimsy costume jewelry for kids plastic.
