FYI, some more info that you may find of interest...
Are you familiar with Saipan and the other islands of
the US Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands?
Goods manufactured here can be labeled "Made in USA"
even though they're made under sweatshop conditions,
often in Chinese owned factories, using Chinese
materials and Chinese workers.
Similar problems in American Samoa as well:
I had heard of legislation in the works to stop
products from Saipan being labeled "Made in USA", but
I can't seem to find any word of it being passed.
