As someone who lives in Oregon, have no problem with people who choose not to support Nike. Should they bring their production line back to the USA where jobs are desperately needed, I would be behind Nike 100%.
Do we really need these jobs back? We are a highly educated society, I couldn't care less about these jobs that are better off in third world countries.
Now re-read what you wrote, development. That sounds like the jobs we need here in America. Just look at UO. Who paid for those athletic buildings? Chinese knockoff factory owners?
Either way, the profits made by Nike are reinvested in America. Where are the profits going for these Chinese knockoffs?
i really hope youre being sarcastic. america desperately needs manufacturing jobs, not everyone is "highly educated" and can work in "development".
